A warm and winning chamber piece about two actors taking on The Misanthrope and trying not to strangle one another in the process.
Philippe Le Guay’s homage to Molière’s comedy of manners finds a droll pair of rival actors in Lambert Wilson and Fabrice Luchini, two veterans of French cinema. A rustic island becomes the perfect setting for contemplations on acting and love, to be pondered—and debated—over scenic bike rides.
