A new take at French writer's lifeBy a customer from London , 24 Sep 2007
[Highly rated reviewer]French Director Tirard looks at Moliere's life from a new angle. Humor (Luchini is very funny), drama and love make it worth watching. The costumes and French villages in this film are breathtaking.

The Language of Moliere...By karenZ (11 reviews) , 20 Oct 2012Farce must be as particular to culture as is language, how exciting to discover gracious French farce with so beautiful and entertaining a movie.
'Moliere' is a dramatic story of Moliere, the great French writer of comedy and it's very funny and very entertaining.
I hadn't any experience of Moliere's work, but for sure, I shall be searching it out from now on...
The period costumes and settings are a turn on for anyone who likes high boots and flat corseted dresses set neatly with lace. Very nice and oh, sweet hero, Romain Duris is unforgettable as Moliere.
Please don't be surprised if you have never seen a movie like 'Moliere' before. A perfectly balanced intelligent and gracious movie.
Well turned, looks good, but lacks depthBy erp (67 reviews) from Manchester , 31 Jul 2012
[Highly rated reviewer]I thought for a while that I'd like this good-looking costume drama more - Fabrice Luchini (M. Jourdain) is a brilliant comic actor who can shimmer seamlessly from seeming odious to being quite touching, and Laura Morante is a joy to the eye. In the first half - when everything was still gathering momentum - I enjoyed the wit of the script. In the end, though, I felt the whole film was going for a rather easy ride without much emotional or imaginative depth, and that the considerable talents of all three principle actors were underused.
Very funnyBy a customer , 10 Nov 2011This is extremely funny. Parts of the film had me in stitches. It is highly entertaining and amusing. Great film.
An excellent choice for a pleasant eveningBy sandstorme (5 reviews) from London SW , 14 Oct 2011This is a charming film. Immensely enyoyable and Romain Duris as usual is brilliant. Transports you back into Paris of the 17th century. It is original too as costume dramas go and very French. A lovely evenings viewing.
What happens next?By Onehorsetown (5 reviews) , 02 Sep 2011Moliere is full of fun - an unusual, but totally agreeable film, one that you are forever wondering what happens next?.
