Details

Francois is a middle aged antique dealer. He has a stylish apartment and a fabulous life, but at a dinner with a group he considers his dearest acquaintances, he is blind sided by the revelation that none of them actually likes him. He's arrogant, self centered and harsh, and they don't believe he knows the meaning of friendship. His business partner Catherine makes him a bet if he can produce his best friend, she will let him keep the massive Greek vase he acquired that afternoon on the company tab. If not, it's hers. Having accepted the wager, Francois naively tears through his address book, trying to shoehorn an increasingly unlikely series of contacts into the all important role. Moving through Paris, he keeps encountering a trivia spouting, big hearted cabbie named Bruno. Bruno's chatty, lowbrow ways grate against Francois's designer temperament, but he covets the other man's easy way with people. He convinces Bruno to teach him how to make friends and sets about learning the "three S's" being sociable, smiling and sincere though they don't come easy. Ultimately, Francois victory will depend on Bruno's naivet in playing along, but what's the cost of cheating at friendship.

  • I liked the movie, but was disappointed to discover it was all in sup-titles.

  • Engaging and charming. A special movie about friendships. Heartwarming with some humour.

  • Sadly this was faulty at the last 5 mins. Enjoyed the rest of it though. Bit different.

  • Again a great movie - really enjoyable about humanity and a man who was lucky enough to have been told about his shortcomings in life to get a second opportunity at enjoying life and friendships.

  • Lightweight, fun & quirky, if predictable, even trite. Enjoyable as a one-off & a bit different.
