It is Giannoli and Frot's shared accomplishment that we come to feel for this deluded woman, who loves music and her husband with a passion that is returned by neither.

Frot gives Marguerite a grandeur, but also an anxious, lost quality, emphasised by Glynn Speeckaert's cinematography with its heavy shadows and tendency to isolate Frot in the middle of the wide screen.

It's a tale of great sadness -- about somebody enchanted by a world she's forever barred from entering.

"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.

This is a poignant, simultaneously jubilant and deeply sad championing of singing like nobody's listening.

Frot is Marguerite, and Marguerite is Frot - her central rendition is the extraordinary performance of a lifetime, capturing the beauty and innocence behind the voice of a peacock.

A strong contender in the upcoming awards season, Marguerite is a gem of a film: intelligent, precisely observed and unforgettable.
