Strand Releasing goes BICYCLING WITH MOLIÈRE (review)

In this sophisticated French comedy, TV drama star Gauthier (Lambert Wilson) yearns to make an impression as a serious stage actor and seeks out reclusive former actor Serge (Fabrice Luchini) to offer him a supporting role in a production of Molière's "The Misanthrope" a play whose interpretation of the lead role Serge has been perfecting for years.  Serge naturally wants the lead so Gauthier suggests alternating performances, and Serge while deciding whether to agree or not takes Gauthier through an exasperating and enlightening series of rehearsals that benefit both men spiritually until a sexy yet misanthropic divorcee comes between them.
