Molière has no redeeming qualities.

Witty lines, sumptuous settings, manicured lawns and horses with carriages provide the setting for this frivolous romp that caresses history as it plays with the misadventures of French playwright Molière %u2026 With just the right balance of playfulness

A sophisticated and literate biographical speculation is the basis of this witty and entertaining portrait of the titular artist.

Deluxe tribute to the playwright gets by, surprisingly, as much by romantic poignancy as farce...it's hard to dislike a picture so in Love with its subject.

A breezy historical romance with a strong knack for comedy.

A sumptuous pleasure to behold, with its elegantly designed motifs, infectious energy conveying the emotional sensibility of the time, and splendid comic mischief satirizing the hypocrisy of both the bourgeoisie and aristocracy.

Un cuadro social de época vivaz y divertido, con estupendo elenco y una cuota de romance y emotividad.

For theater people and French literature buffs...a delightful game of spot-the-reference...

As the film picks up momentum, however, it becomes the story of an aimless young man who discovers his own brilliant wit and learns how to use it. As he gets closer to the scathing, fearless Moliere we know and love, so does the movie.

An amusing and clever film, often laugh-out-loud funny and filled with sparkling characters.

"Moliere" actually tells a funny, involving story that really does seem inspired by its subject, rather than just lazily cribbing from his work.
September 13, 2007
The film illuminates little about Molière himself, but what do you expect from a movie that has the depth of a kiddie pool?
September 12, 2007
There's not a single moment that you haven't already seen in a different, better period film.

It's like a breeze so slight it doesn't leave a tickle.

Connoisseurs of Sun King-era costumes and decor are the most likely fans of this impeccably produced but unimaginative pseudo-biopic...
September 6, 2007
The cast is very good. The chemistry between Duris and Morante smolders, while Luchini makes a convincing, bungling aristocrat.
September 4, 2007
Certainly attractive to look at, but what goes on in front of the manicured lawns and sumptuous seventeenth-century interiors is considerably less amusing than it might be.
