My Afternoons with Margueritte

In a small French town, Germain, a nearly illiterate man in his 50's, considered by many to be the village idiot, takes a walk to the park where he meets Marguerite, a little old lady who is reading excerpts from her novel aloud. She's articulate, highly intelligent and frail. Between Germain and Marguerite, there are 40 years and 200 pounds difference. Slowly Germain is lured by Marguerite's passion for life and the magic of literature from which he has always felt excluded. Based on the novel by Marie-Sabine Roger, this gentle story of life's random encounters features Gerald Depardieu and Gisele Casadesus.
