Then along comes "My Afternoons with Margueritte", a French film starring Gerard Depardieu and Gisele Casadesus.
This was by far the most beautiful film, easy to watch even with subtitles.
Not much to say, except this was a "Love story of a different kind" ( to paraphrase Jimmy Buffet ). I loved this more than any of the others I have recently written about!
Hope you can find it and check it out.
