MY BEST FRIEND

MON MEILLEUR AMI

Status: Completed

Director(s): Patrice Leconte

Long synopsis : Fran§ois is a dealer in antiques, a man completely immersed in his trade. On the occasion of his birthday, his associate Catherine candidly infoms him that he has no friends. The other guests agree: Fran§ois™ passion is confined to the objects he buys and sells; he cannot connect emotionally. Fran§ois is shocked – surely they’re joking? He has nothing but friends, his days are full of meetings, of people. But Catherine insists: she’s talking about friendship, not business. Fran§ois insists – she’s talking nonsense. When things get really heated between them, Catherine offers achallenge: Fran§ois must produce one of these good friends, a real friend – his best friend. He’s got ten days to find him. Thus his search begins. Only now does Fran§ois start to understand the difficulty of the task ahead of him. Disappointment follows disappointment, rejection follows rejection, and the true, lonely state of his life becomes clear. Then a meeting with a taxi driver offers a glimmer of unlikely hope…
