CYCLING WITH MOLIERE is a French language comedy drama, with English subtitles, in which a television actor visits an acclaimed but retired actor, in the hope of persuading him to return to the stage for a production of Moliere's 'The Misanthrope'.

Sex

There is discussion of the making of porn films, including certain acts such as 'double penetration'. There are also comments about the effect of a vasectomy on erection and ejaculation.

Language

Three uses of strong language ('f**k'). Milder bad language includes uses of 'crappy', 'bitch', 'shit' and 'asshole'.

There is a scene in which two men have a brief fight: a punch is delivered to a man's face, before the pair stumble backwards onto a market stall, which collapses. One man is left with a bloody nose and the other gets a black eye.

There is some natural nudity when a man's basic black and white paintings of naked women are visible. Old and small black and white photos of naked women are also visible in the background.

Several characters smoke cigarettes.
