My Afternoons with Margueritte Blu Review

My Afternoons with Margueritte Blu Review
Gerard Depardieu plays Germain Chavez who is a handyman, gardening illiterate who is mocked by the village for his stupidity, even by those that are supposed to be his friends. One day in the park he sits on a bench next a little old woman named Margueritte (Gisele Casadesus) who both have a common interest in the pigeons that congregate in that area of the park. In this, a friendship blossoms in the most rare and random of circumstances. Margueritte is a book worm who rifles through books and books for the lovely lyrical sound of literature and linguistics which she then tries to handover to Germain. An illiterate cannot have the love of literature that she does making her his teacher for the rest of the film, teaching him the lovely French language and pushing him into trying something that his past has scarred him too much to attempt.
