Today is the European Day of Languages! To celebrate french language, tuesday movie night has been changed to highlight Moliere's life.
Who was Moliere? He is known everywhere as one of the world's greatest playwrights. But who was he?
In 17th-century France, playwright and actor Molière (Romain Duris) has his debts paid off by Monsieur Jourdain (Fabrice Luchini), freeing him from debtors prison. In return, Jourdain asks for acting lessons so he can win the heart of the beautiful widow Célimène by performing a short play for her. Presented to Jourdain's family as the priest Tartuffe, Molière begins to fall in love with Monsieur Jourdain's disregarded wife, Elmire.
Movie in french with english subtitles.
