Coming Soon

The heartbreaking and hilarious comedy Marguerite is set in 1921, at the beginning of the Golden Twenties. It is party day at Marguerite Dumont’s castle, not far from Paris. Like every year, an array of music lovers gathers around a great cause at the owner’s place. Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings. She sings wholeheartedly, but she sings terribly out of tune. In ways quite similar to the Castafiore, Marguerite (Catherine Frot) has been living her passion in her own bubble, and the hypocrite audience, always coming in for a good laugh, acts as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband’s reluctance, and with the help of a has-been divo both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers. (Fully subtitled)
