My Afternoons With Margueritte
MY AFTERNOONS WITH MARGUERITTE is the story of life's random encounters. In a small French town Germain, a nearly illiterate man in his 50s who is considered the village idiot, takes a walk to the park and happens to sit beside Margueritte, a little old lady who is reading excerpts from her novel aloud. She's articulate, highly intelligent and frail. Germain is lured in by Margueritte's passion for life and the magic of literature from which he has always felt excluded.
