Tonight’s entry: “Tous les Matins du Monde,” 1991 French film directed by Alain Corneau.

As reviewed by imdb:

“TOUS LES MATINS DU MONDE is a French film directed by Alain Corneau, from a script by Corneau and Pascal Quignard. It stars Jean-Pierre Marielle, Gerard Depardieu, Guillaume Depardieu, Anne Brochet, and Carole Richert. Unrated, includes male and female nudity. In French with English subtitles.

TOUS LES MATINS DU MONDE is as serious, slow-paced, and sadly beautiful as the viola da gamba music that pervades the film. The story of the film concentrates on the conflict between the austere, cenobitic master of the viola da gamba (the ancestor of the modern cello), Monsieur de Sainte-Colombe — whose name is otherwise unknown — and a hack seeking fame and fortune in the court of Louis XIV, Marin Marais. Their personal conflict symbolizes the war between art and commercial success, a subject as relevant today as in the late 17th Century.”
