My Afternoons With Margueritte 

7pm Sunday 6th November 2011

Dir. Jean Becker / 2010 / Lang: Fre, Flemsh subtitles| 82 mins | Rated: 15

My Afternoons with Marguerite is the story of life's random encounters. In a small French town, Germain, a nearly illiterate man in his 50's and considered to be the village idiot by his friends at the local bistro, takes a walk to the park one day and happens to sit beside Marguerite, a little old lady who is reading excerpts from her novel aloud.

Afternoons spent reading aloud on their favorite bench transform their lives and start them both on a new journey - to literacy and respect for Germain, and to the deepest friendship for Marguerite.
