Andre Le Magnifique Details


An actor who does not suffer fools gladly finds himself replaced by one in this comedy. The citizens of a French village decide to celebrate their history by staging a play that will chronicle memorable events from the town's past. The play's author, Alexis (Patrick Ligardes), casts his wife Janine ([[Performer~P232232~Isabelle Candelier~isabellecandelier]]) in the leading female role despite her odd way of delivering dialogue. However, for the male lead, Alexis hires an arrogant professional actor from Paris, Jean-Pascal Faix ([[Performer~P57376~Jean-Luc Porraz~jeanlucporraz]]). The village simpleton, Andre ([[Performer~P239624~Michel Vuillermoz~michelvuillermoz]]), has volunteered to serve as a stagehand and prompter. When Andre mistakenly leads Jean-Pascal into a trash dumpster that's soon dragged away, he's convinced (falsely) that he's killed the Parisian actor -- and is determined to take his place so that the show will go on. Andre le Magnifique was adapted from a stage farce that was a major hit in Paris, winning five Moliere awards (the French equivalent of the American Tony Award). ~ Mark Deming, Rovi
