Often described as a French Shakespeare in Love, this latest representation of the life of Molière, France's greatest comic playwright, portrays an impetuous young man learning through subterfuge, witty repartee and romance how to become the father and true master of the satire of human nature

In this sumptuous costume romp, Romain Duris proves himself again one of the finest young French actors, much helped by the film's intelligent, funny and suspenseful script.

Tirard cleverly takes the material of some of the best-known plays to weave a richly entertaining story, aided by a fine score and great cinematography.


“Molière comes to discover that comedy can plumb depths as profound as tragedy, have a broader appeal and raise the human spirit. A very satisfying film.”
