4 facts about the film:

  • Although Catherine Frot took singing lessons, she was voiced by professional opera singer for songs.
  • Even if Marguerite was inspired by a woman who really existed, Giannoli denies having made a biopic.
  • Marguerite marks the return of Catherine Frot in the cinema after three years of absence.
  • The birth of the project goes back several years ago when the director heard on the radio a singer sing out of the tune.


The Paris of the 20s. Marguerite Dumont is a wealthy woman and passionate of music and opera. For years, she sings regularly in front of her friends. But Marguerite sings tragically wrong and no one ever told her. Her husband and her family have always maintained her in her illusions. Everything becomes complicated the day she decides she has to perform before a live audience at the Opera.
