My Afternoons with Margueritte

Rated NR 82 minutes 2010

My Afternoons With Margueritte is undeniably sweet and disarming. The downside is that the story is predictable and pretty linear, but the upside is that you’ll probably feel better having watched it, and that’s got to count for something. It features a nice performance by Gérard Depardieu as a semi-literate laborer who begins a ritual of meeting the quite-seasoned Margueritte (97-year-old Gisèle Casadesus) in a park where she teaches him about literature—but in reality, they teach each other about the importance of genuine human connection. Genuine is a pretty accurate description for Margueritte, even though it might feel lighter than air. It’s a simple journey, but its heart is in the right place. As easy as it may be to not take Gérard Depardieu that seriously, he proves again that when he wants to be, he’s a great actor.
