A love story, but not the classic head-over-heels story where it's Juliet's destiny to meet her Romeo and live out a tragic situation that ends in tears. [Full review in Spanish]

Margueritte is played by Gisle Casadesus, a spry and still beautiful 96-year-old veteran... and one of the pleasures of Becker's film is being able to feast your eyes on a face like hers, which has an entire lifetime etched into its lines.

My Afternoons with Margueritte itself is hardly brain food for viewers-it's more like a still-warm, home-baked cookie, celluloid comfort food.

No ser una gran pelcula, pero es un raro ejemplar en estos das cuyo hallazgo produce un placer inusual. Grard Depardieu ofrece una actuacin conmovedora.

There's no reason this clich-ridden French drama should work, but it does, and there's the beauty of it.

a small charming film that only the French could create.

Casadesus - at 97, a French national treasure who has been wowing stage and screen audiences since the 1930s - tenderly manages to make great literature sound like conversation, and vice versa.

A sweet puff of a film, My Afternoons With Margueritte is as disarming as it is absurd.

[Depardieu] is as emblematic of his country as Tom Hanks is of ours, and "My Afternoons With Margueritte" is his "Forrest Gump." Only better.

Only the good aspects of traditional village culture concern writer-director Jean Becker, who aims for charm rather than profundity, and hits the bull's-eye with this leisurely film.

It's a lovely French character study.

The two actors and director/co-writer Jean Becker treat it as if it were a masterpiece. And maybe it is.

There isn't much to Jean Becker's movie, but what there is, is charming... You won't regret spending eighty minutes not only with Marguerite but with Germain, too.

The happy ending lays it on too thick, but what the hell: In for a dime, in for a dollar.

It's a lovely movie.

Subtly sweet and compassionate, appealing to art-house filmgoers of a certain age.

It's determined to look on the bright side. The film isn't about the actor's intelligence. It's about his emotional radiance.
September 22, 2011
The film is leisurely paced, as many French films are, and not much actually happens, but as a character study, it feels true, and ultimately moving.

Though mostly sunny, Afternoons has its chills.
