My Afternoons with Margueritte Trailer (2010)
Trailer for My Afternoons with Margueritte.
In a small French town, Germain, a nearly illiterate man in his 50’s and considered to be the village idiot by his friends at the local bistro takes a walk to the park one day and happens to sit beside Margueritte, a little old lady reading excerpts from a novel aloud. She’s articulate, highly intelligent and frail. Between Germain and Margueritte, there are 40 years and 200 pounds difference. Germain is lured by Margueritte’s passion for life and the magic of literature from which he has always felt excluded. As Margueritte broadens his mind via reading excerpts from the novel, Germain realizes that he is more of an intellectual than he has ever allowed himself to be. Afternoons spent reading aloud on their favorite bench transform their lives and start them both on a new journey – to literacy and respect for Germain, and to the deepest friendship for Margueritte.
