Paris, 1920s. Marguerite Dumont is a wealthy woman, lover of the music and the opera. She loves to sing for her friends, although she's not a good singer. Both her friends and her husband have kept her fantasy. The problem begins when she decides to perform in front of a real audience.
"Marguerite" is a dark delight, a cringe comedy that skirts tragedy throughout, examining delusion, entitlement, denial and the question of whether the truth is essential.Tom Long, Detroit News
Frot's performance, as a woman so caught up in the joy of music that she doesn't quite understand how bad she is, is particularly delightful, and often quite moving.Moira MacDonald, Seattle Times
