Giannoli, Xavier
1921, the beginning of the Golden Twenties. Not far from Paris. It is party day at Marguerite Dumont's castle. Like every year, an array of music lovers gathers around a great cause at the owner's place. Nobody knows much about this woman except that she is rich and that her whole life is devoted to her passion: music. Marguerite sings. She sings wholeheartedly, but she sings terribly out of tune. Marguerite has been living her passion in her own bubble, and the hypocrite audience, always coming in for a good laugh, acts as if she was the diva she believes she is. When a young, provocative journalist decides to write a rave article on her latest performance, Marguerite starts to believe even further in her talent. This gives her the courage she needs to follow her dream. Despite her husband's reluctance, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers. Winner of Best Actress (Catherine Frot) and nominated for Best Director and Best Film at the César Awards. Winner of the Nazareno Taddei Award and nominated for the Golden Lion at the Venice Film Festival. "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." - Tom Long, Detroit News
