One day, a young lady asks him to follow her to the deathbed of her mother… Thirteen years earlier, Molière already runs a troupe but goes broke and is thrown to prison. Fortunately (?) his debt is covered by Monsieur Jourdain, a rich man who wants him to help him rehearse a one-act play he has written with a view to seducing a beautiful bright young widow, Célimène. As Jourdain is married to Elmire, and is the “respectable” father of two daughters his design must remain secret so Molière is introduced into the house as Tartuffe, an austere priest…
Plot: Molière, a down-and-out actor-cum-playwright up to his ears in debt. When the wealthy Jourdain offers to cover that debt so that Molière’s theatrical talents might help Jourdain win the heart of a certain widowed marquise, hilarity ensues.

Molière’s life told as a Molière’s play : enjoyable but a little shallow
The original idea of the movie is quite seducing : it tells us a fragment of Molière’s life as if he were in a Molière’s play. This fictional and fantasist biography is a sort of “what if” Molière had meet in his youth all the characters he’ll use as figures to his future plays : Jourdain, Elmire, Doriante, and had also experience the comical situations he’ll re-transcript later on stage : Molière pretends to be Tartufe in order to learn to act to M. Jourdain. But no mistakes here, “Molière”, if you put aside the painful introduction and the final scene of the movie, isn’t a reflection on art and life and their interconnection, in an “Amadeus”‘s style : if it tells us Molière’s life as a Molière’play, it’s merely to give us a simple and shallow, but quite enjoyable comedy, far from the abyssal questions such a supposition could have arise.

There’s plenty of good ideas in the movie, which underline the comical side of the original idea, but never reach its full potential. The good points are a completely fun and fantasist vision of the History, for such a concept allows a non conventional and funny vision of Molière’s life. It also deals with a lot of situations and citations of Molière’s plays, which are always a pleasure to hear. But the movie, even more than his lack of deep, suffers from several major defaults, that spoil a little the pleasure that the concept of the film could have offer.

The direction, for instance, is far more unoriginal and academic than the the pitch of the movie : it even sometimes looks like a movie made for TV : it’s clean, but there is is no emphasis in it. The same thing goes with the script : if the idea is funny, the dialogs are sometimes a little easy and the all thing is almost always predictable : more madness could have arise from the movie. And if the actors are independently all very good, they don’t really match with one another : it’s like if they all were in different movies.

Romain Duris is excellent in a intense (anyway, he’s always too intense) and tortured Molière, but he is hardly in a comedy : his character seems too deep in comparison to the others, for they’re merely comical stereotypes from Molière’s plays. Fabrice Luchini is a perfect theatrical character, taking pleasure to quote Molière’s dialogs every two sentences. Laura Morante is in a quite serious marivaudage and Ludivine Sagnier and Edouard Baer are very funny, but they’re in their own movie : a comical show about the XVII century. And this heterogeneity of the protagonists is really annoying in a long feature movie : you really have the impression that everyone plays his own little act, without really interfering in other’s.

The movie is also a little long for what’s it’s worth : some scenes unnecessary last forever and some unfunny situations are longly detailed (I’m thinking about the love story of the daughter of the family : it’s predictable and boring). So, at the end, all you have is a funny little french comedy, whereas it could have had the intensity and the deep of “Amadeus”.

And by the way, if you like fictions based on famous writer’s life, I advise you to watch “Les larmes blanches” by Grégory Rateau if you have a chance to see it. It deals with Rimbaud’s youth and, in only eleven minutes, it manages to be deeper than this “Molière”, and to present a much more appropriate and interesting use of famous quotations.

Do not expect a romp film. ‘Moliere’ is a serious drama.
This film starts slowly but the two-hour experience is ultimately rewarding when one realises it is neither farce nor conventional comedy. It does not provoke belly laughs, there are no titillating sex scenes and action is kept to a minimum. It is an amusing drama in which the main protagonists pursue the serious business of living but with comedic results. ‘Comedy is a serious business’ is the underlying theme.

Moliere believes that tragedy is the only true theatre but his over-the-top declamations fail to impress and are in themselves comedic. That comedy can also illuminate the human condition is the lesson that the young Moliere learns in this fictional story.

The film has been called a French ‘Shakespeare in Love’. There are parallels. The young writer is in search of a muse. He has money problems. Characters have to disguise their true identity. There is love – requited and unrequited. The unhappiness of an arranged marriage as new money wishes to acquire the social cache of a title. Art ultimately imitates life.

However, the two films are very different. ‘Moliere’ is a serious film which demands more of its audience. Probably most people will find it less entertaining. I found it more enlightening because it does explore the human condition through real characters whose life problems are portrayed as deadly serious. No cheap laughs here.

If I were to compare ‘Moliere’ with an English film it would be with ‘The Clandestine Marriage'(1999). In plot, structure and tenor the two films bear a striking resemblance. Neither film is particularly funny. Each is a comedy of manners set in a country house. The amusement (a refined emotion, supposedly above the dull-witted hoi-polloi) lies in the fact that social convention has potentially trapped characters into a great unhappiness. Class and gender inequalities provide the social dynamic – Marx would approve! Both films have very few characters. Both rely on wit rather than clowning. Both present a past world which is utterly believable. Both have a slow and measured pace. Both end on a happy note after a good deal of individual sadness.

The film’s historical authenticity underpins the social satire lying at the heart of Moliere plays. The bourgeois Jourdain seeks all the refinements of the noblesse – dancing, painting, swordsmanship, horsemanship, letters, manners etc., etc. (Echoed by the Timothy Spall character in ‘The Clandestine Marriage’).The Dorante character displays all the weaknesses of the noblesse – spendthrift idler with a distaste for any form of work – ‘We acquire our fortunes from marriage, not from work.’ He is a man who has the ear of the King but who is not above lowering himself in pursuit of fresh money to restore his depleted fortune. The fact that his son wants to go into business appalls him and he spends a few laboured minutes trying to deny that his own family were originally in trade. This is funny only if one understands the society in which it is set. Of course, the ancien regime expressly forbade certain elements of the noblesse from going into trade.

The theatre scenes and the internal decor of the Joudain country house are very authentic. It all feels very 17th Century. Even the sturdy unsprung coaches with their unglazed windows are spot on. Society has not yet reached the excessive refinements of the next century.

‘Moliere’ is sumptuously shot. The outdoor scenes are a feast for the eye. The music is very compelling, even if it is not of this period. The acting is superb and the dialogue convincing. One does not have to know about Moliere plays to realise that future characters and plots are being gestated within the fictitious story being told. Or, to put it the other way round, that the story-line is based on the later plays and characters of Moliere.

Romain Duris, Fabrice Luchini and Laura Morante all give fine performances as the main protagonists. No character is allowed to descend into farce or parody. The integrity of the drama is maintained from first to last. I expect marketing this film has caused some problems and probably has led to a miss-selling of the content which will disappoint some viewers. This is not a romp film and anyone expecting one will be disappointed. It is an art-house film with a serious message. ‘The Tears of Moliere’ would be a more apt title.
