As part of the Nuits de la lecture, the Instituto Francés de Madrid is screening this evening at 8 p.m. the film Molière en bicicleta (Alceste à bicyclette), by Philippe Le Guay, a comedy with Fabrice Luchini about the role of literature in our daily lives.
At the height of his artistic career, Serge Tanneur left show business for good to move to the Ile de Ré and live as a hermit. Three years later, Gauthier Valence, a famous television actor, is planning a production of Molière’s The Misanthrope and wants to offer Serge the lead role. Serge offers Gauthier five days of rehearsal to see if he wants to take part. The two actors measure and challenge each other, sharing the pleasure of acting together and at the same time a great desire to fight, and everything seems to indicate that Serge is going to return to the stage.
