Every day, AlloCiné recommends a film to (re)watch on TV. Tonight: a film that makes you love math? It’s possible !

Are you like the author of these lines, bad at math? All these words that rhyme with “on” (equation, division, fraction, etc.) plunge you into deep disarray, or even cause you to panic? So we recommend the excellent Marguerite Theorem, an existential quest set against a backdrop of mathematics which could, miraculously, make you love this obscure and impenetrable science!

Released in theaters in 2023, Marguerite’s Theorem tells the story of a young woman, a brilliant mathematics student at the Ecole Normale Supérieure, whose future seems clear-cut. The only girl in her class, she is finishing a thesis which she must present in front of an audience of researchers. On the big day, an error shakes up all his certainties and the building collapses. Marguerite decides to leave everything to start again.

The idea of Marguerite’s theoreman astonishing, subtle and endearing film, came to director Anna Novion when, aged around twenty, she fell ill and had to remain cloistered for six months. “After my recovery, I felt a gap with people my age, I was no longer in their carefree mood”she notes. “I thought about the major schools, where the students are sometimes outside the world, focused on their studies, and very quickly the mathematics environment seemed obvious to me.”

A César for the young mathematician

To give birth to Marguerite’s theoremscreened in a Special Screening at the 2023 Cannes Film Festival, Anna Novion collaborated with mathematician Ariane Mézard. “She was the first who spoke to me about mathematics in an artistic way, evoking poetry, imagination, everything that also animates me in my profession. By speaking to me about her passion, she spoke to me about mine”declares the filmmaker.

If we had to remember only one of the many qualities of this film, it would undoubtedly be the remarkable performance of young Ella Rumpf. In the role of an obsessive math student, the young woman, revealed by Grave, excels. The Césars made no mistake in awarding her the Prize for Female Revelation.

We assure you that 2 + 2 makes 5 (sorry, 4!), this exciting Marguerite’s theorem will captivate you!

Tonight on Canal+ at 9 p.m.
