One of my professors at CSUB said, "Who is the greatest French writer?" To which you would answer, "Molier." Then he would say, "Shakespeare translated into French." My teacher was pretty funny. But that's besides the point.
This movie, Molier, kind of takes a page from Shakespeare in Love. It follows Molier as he goes about a life that parallels his plays. However, Shakespeare in Love blew, and Molier is actually witty, funny, well-acted, and clever.
Did I mention witty? It's not often that I'm blown away by someone else's dialog.
