About the Movie

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. In ways quite similar to the Castafiore, 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, and with the help of a has-been divo, both funny and mean, she decides to train for her first recital in front of a crowd of complete strangers.

Top Critics' Reviews

Fresh: "Marguerite" achieves what the protagonist herself never managed: perfect pitch. – Michael Phillips, Chicago Tribune, Mar 24, 2016

Fresh: 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. – Mick LaSalle, San Francisco Chronicle, Mar 31, 2016

Fresh: It piles too much on its serving plate, and at 129 minutes it's definitely overlong. But it has Frot, an actress with the wise, patient eyes of a cat, and she invests Marguerite with the multiple meanings the rest of the film elegantly fumbles. – Ty Burr, Boston Globe, Mar 24, 2016

Fresh: In the end, the movie gives voice not just to Marguerite's deficiencies as a singer but also to emotional frailties that are too human and familiar. – Michael O'Sullivan, Washington Post, Mar 24, 2016

What a waste of time! It started out interesting but quickly lost us, enough of the bad singing and stupidity. A simple message that took too long. Ended with no resolution nor any open questions.

Just do one thing:

Don't listen to MollydeC.
