Movie Info

A warm, funny, literate comedy in which two French actors portray two French actors, friends at odds with one another in every possible way, except their love of Molière's The Misanthrope. Lambert Wilson (OF GODS AND MEN) plays Gauthier, tall, handsome, and the beneficiary of a leading role in a ridiculous soap opera as a beloved cosmetic surgeon who "saves lives." Fabrice Luchini (who previously worked with Le Guay in WOMEN ON THE 6TH FLOOR) as Serge has met with much less success, becoming a middle-aged curmudgeon who has renounced the stage to live on the glorious île de Ré, off France's Atlantic coast. Gauthier arrives on Serge's turf to try to convince his pal (Luchini, in real life, a Molière expert) to return to Paris to play opposite him in a new production. When not arguing or rehearsing scenes while biking, they consider their options as personified by a local porn actress and an attractive Italian divorcée, as well as the lure of island real estate.

Audience Reviews for Bicycling with Moliere

  • Jan 04, 2014
    A light and charming comedy that may be a bit irregular and not very well focused but has some nice dialogue and good moments of humor - and along the rehearsal of Molière's work by the leads we are given a decent exploration of the nuances in the interaction between them.
