My Afternoons with Margueritte

Rated NR 82 minutes 2010

He may be fatter than Marlon Brando at his most whale-like, but G�rard Depardieu can still reach down and deliver a tender-hearted performance in deep character, as in this very sweet, suitably modest character study about a simple soul named Germain Chazes (Depardieu) and his impromptu relationship with the eponymous kindly, bookish, old woman (Gis�le Casadeus) who has valuable life lessons to impart in their provincial French town. It�s the sort of role we imagine that Depardieu can toss off with ease, the cinematic equivalent of uncomplicated comfort food. But the two actors and director/co-writer Jean Becker treat it as if it were a masterpiece. And maybe it is. Costarring Sophie Guillemin. (82 min.)
