  1. I enjoyed ‘Marguerite’ even more second time around. There’s such depth to the characterisations. And Catherine Frot is superb.

  2. A César award-winning performance by Catherine Frot as the tone-deaf Marguerite Dumont, watched over by her butler Madelbos, who photographs every stage of her tragicomic odyssey.
