Engaging tale that speculates about what might have happened when actor and aspiring author Jean-Baptiste Poquelin (Romain Duris), who would become the playwright Moliere, disappeared from Paris in his youth, showing him enlisted by a wealthy businessman (Fabrice Luchini) to help him seduce a potential mistress, though the playwright ends up falling in love with the man's wife (Laura Morante). His farcical and ultimately morally redeeming adventures end up giving him the inspiration for his greatest plays in which comedy and moral purpose meet, allowing director and co-writer Laurent Tirard's film to give an amusing twist to the theme of art imitating life. Some crude and sexual language, some liturgical and doctrinal irreverence, as well as mild sexual scenes of a somewhat romanticized adulterous relationship. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
