The plot of the 1991 Caesar-winning Tous les matins du monde takes place in France, during the reign of the Sun King, Louis XIV. The protagonists are two musicians playing the gamba – the enigmatic Jean de Sainte-Colombe and his student Marin Marais. The show of the film during the French Academy will be an excellent opportunity to revisit the work that has introduced several generations of cinema lovers to the charming world of early music. It was thanks to this motion picture by Alain Corneau that many fledging music lovers have heard for the first time not only about Marais, but also about Jordi Savall, responsible for the musical direction during the production of the film.

We know very little about the life of Sainte-Colombe. The script complements the scraps of information we have, and at the same time asks timeless questions about the value of art. Tous les matins do monde looks at the artist through the eyes of his student (Sainte-Colombe is played by Gérard Depardieu, and his son Guillaume plays his disciple). An excellent gambist, devastated after the death of his wife, he focuses solely on perfecting his playing and the strict upbringing of his daughters. He even rejects an invitation to the royal court, and his everyday life resembles the life of a hermit. He also dismisses Marais, who wants to take lessons from him but does not yet understand the essence music. The young student eventually manages to eavesdrop on the master in solitude devoted to music, which, like for the mythical Orpheus, is a way to recall his prematurely lost beloved wife.
