A great actor at the peak of his career, Serge Tanneur (Fabrice Luchini) decides to leave everything and go live as a hermit in an old house he inherited from his uncle on the island of Ré. Three years later, Gauthier Valence, an actor friend, comes to the island to look for him. He wants to convince Serge to return to the stage for his adaptation of Molière’s Misanthrope.
Serge is tempted and suggests to Gauthier that he rehearse the play to see where it will lead. It is then that Gauthier and Serge begin rehearsals of Molière’s play in multiple locations in the house.
The filming took place on the island of Ré during the spring of 2012 between March 12 and April 27.
Bicycling with Molièrewas shown for 15 weeks in French cinemas.
