What this film is is a good period drama about people living their lives.
April 12, 2019
The amazing accomplishment of Catherine Frot's performance is that we both laugh at and pity Marguerite, and regard her celebrity as both a travesty and a tragedy.
April 9, 2019
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.
October 10, 2018
A strong contender in the upcoming awards season, Marguerite is a gem of a film: intelligent, precisely observed and unforgettable.
August 31, 2018
Catherine Frot's performance as the titular title character is notable and layered, and the film provides a wonderful supporting cast.

What keeps this together is the glowing, sensitive performance from Catherine Frot (The Page Turner), who plays the deluded singer with an earnest grace.
October 24, 2017
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.
October 24, 2017
Catherine Frot is heartbreakingly wonderful as Marguerite Dumont, whose love of opera is passionate and sincere and yet whose talent for it is close to zero.
August 29, 2017
Marguerite offers pathos bathed in luxury and delusion with a hint of compassion.
August 22, 2017
[Catherine Frot's] so charismatic-and so brimming with commendable, borderline pathological self-regard-that this imaginary person made me want to retract every real, deservedly bad review I've ever written.
February 23, 2017
An elegant film that always maintains the pathetic case of Margarita's vocation in the thin line that separates the corrosive mood of tenderness as a strong feeling. [Full review in Spanish]

Because of Mpunga and Frot, Marguerite is a pleasant and emotive experience.
December 28, 2016
By the end, [Marguerite will] have you crying like Pagliacci.
December 28, 2016
It's handsomely turned out in its monochrome palette, and Marguerite's big numbers remain reliably amusing, Frot mangling her standards like a sham-dram Liza or Barbra while Marcon tersely clutches his hunting rifle in the wings.
August 8, 2016
Marguerite's unspeakable voice is counterpointed by cinematographer Glynn Speeckaert's exquisitely composed tableaux. And the denouement yields more than one surprise.
June 30, 2016
It may be a little conventional, but the main character is too fascinating. [Full review in Spanish]
June 27, 2016
Marguerite is a cruel and yet noble comedy. [Full review in Spanish]
June 27, 2016
Director Xavier Giannoli stays away from the extravagance of the main character and creates a more faithful portrait. [Full review in Spanish]
June 27, 2016
Giannoli keeps the story with a fun and friendly tone. [Full review in Spanish]
