Bicycling with Moliere
BICYCLING WITH MOLIÃˆRE (Comedy-Drama) Directed by Philippe Le Guay (The Women on the 6th Floor). Serge
Tanneur (Fabrice Luchini) is at the pinnacle of his acting career when he decides to turn his back on show business and become a hermit living off of FranceÂ’s Atlantic coast. Three years later, Gauthier Valence (Lambert Wilson), a beloved TV actor,
shows up on the island to offer Serge a role in his directorial debut Â– a rendition of MoliÃ¨reÂ’s classic play, Â“The MisanthropeÂ”.
Serge refuses at first, but then suggests that they rehearse the first scene and after five days heÂ’ll decide if he wants to do
the play or not. What ensues is a battle of brawn and wits and peculiar encounters with a hotel maid who longs to be a porn
star and an Italian divorcÃ©e.
