Critic Consensus: Touching, funny, and thoughtful, Marguerite honors its real-life inspiration with a well-acted and ultimately inspirational look at the nature of art and the value of a dream.

Critic Reviews for Marguerite
"Marguerite" is a dark delight, a cringe comedy that skirts tragedy throughout, examining delusion, entitlement, denial and the question of whether the truth is essential.
Frot's performance, as a woman so caught up in the joy of music that she doesn't quite understand how bad she is, is particularly delightful, and often quite moving.
We laugh during "Marguerite," but we don't laugh at Marguerite, because somehow director and co-writer Xavier Giannoli persuades us to see in her the universal tragedy.
Catherine Frot gives a heartrending performance as the title character, an aging baroness in 1920s Paris who feverishly pursues a classical singing career despite her utter lack of talent.
It piles too much on its serving plate, and at 129 minutes it's definitely overlong. But it has Frot, an actress with the wise, patient eyes of a cat, and she invests Marguerite with the multiple meanings the rest of the film elegantly fumbles.
