Alceste a Bicyclette (Cycling with Moliere)

A warm and winning chamber piece about two actors taking on The Misanthrope and trying not to strangle one another in the process, Philippe Le Guay?s Cycling With Moliere (Alceste a bicyclette) provides further proof of the Gallic writer-director?s talent for crafting finely acted, middlebrow dramedies with a heart.
