MOLIÈRE (2007) SBS ONE, 11.30PM, PG, COM­EDY

The Sunday Mail (Queensland) - TV Guide - - HIGHLIGHTS -

Think of the 1998 Os­car win­ner Shake­speareIn Love and you have the play­ful flavour of French film­maker Lau­rent Ti­rard’s lush fic­tional com­edy about the French Shake­speare: Moliére, au­thor of more than 30 17th-cen­tury plays. It fol­lows the French icon as he is re­leased from prison by wealthy busi­ness­man Mon­sieur Jour­dain in ex­change for act­ing lessons and his help to woo a French count­ess. The bal­ance of com­edy and drama is just right in a sat­is­fy­ing movie that ben­e­fits from the daz­zling pro­duc­tion de­sign and cine­matog­ra­phy by Gilles Henry. ★★★✩
