What is actually a profound meditation on creativity is being marketed as a hot sex epic. Don’t believe the hype: All the Mornings of the World is perhaps the most moving of all stories about the relationship between pupil and teacher. Gerard Depardieu plays the 17th-century composer Marin Marais remembering in flashback his ascetic mentor, the reclusive Sainte-Colombe (Jean-Pierre Marielle). Depardieu’s son Guillaume plays Marais’ younger self, who learns that pain, especially the pain of loss, is the real path to expression and understanding.
