He will have to spend three years, until the end of the war, in the hospital along with a motley group of teenage boys. Maurice attributes this long stay only to his illness when in reality he is being hidden from the Nazis by the attending doctor and senior nurse. Only when the letters to his family are returned to him and his native tongue Yiddish is forbidden, does Maurice being to understand he faces utmost danger.

French Truly Salon: Molière

 

SIFF Cinema Uptown | French Truly Salon

Bubbling with wit, stellar performances and lavish cinematography, this sumptuous historical comedy (and closing night gala of SIFF 2007), follows the great French satirist Molière as he finds himself embroiled in a hotbed of romance and repartee, subterfuge and seduction. Preceding the movie will be a lively visual presentation from French Truly about the life and times of Molière, and a reception with French treats provided by La Parisienne and J Wines.

Viginie says: Did you know the French language was nicknamed “La langue de Molière”, Molière’s language? That is because Molière is one of the greatest masters of comedy in Western literature. The Sun King Louis XIV appreciated his talent as a playwright and an actor so much that he decided to make him his “préféré”. Having the favors of the King meant success, money, protection, connections, not to mention time & peace of mind to write lots of hilarious plays–which he absolutely did! This movie is a clever combination of the funniest elements of these plays, joined together into one story. Experience Versailles, the French nobility, and bourgeoisie with Molière’s delightfully sarcastic eye.
