Cycling With Moliere
A warm and winning chamber piece about two actors taking on The Misanthrope and trying not to strangle one another in the process, Philippe Le Guay’s Cycling With Moliere (Alceste a bicyclette) provides further proof of the Gallic writer-director’s talent for crafting finely acted, middlebrow dramedies with a heart. Featuring a scene-stealing performance from leading man Fabrice Luchini, who also starred in The Woman on the 6th Floor, the film should find similar success at home, with strong overseas possibilities if marketed to older art house audiences.
