Two Friends

Louis Garrel
Les deux amis
France 2015 / 100’

Humble Clément, who sometimes lands work as an extra in movies, is madly in love with Mona, who works at a train station café. She's rejected his advances many a time, letting him clearly understand she's not interested in him in any way except as a client. All for naught, because the tenacious Romeo refuses to give up. Mona is a complicated woman with a past, which Clément seems not to notice. He gets help from a close friend, Abel, a jaded womanizer. The two spontaneously hatch a plan to win Mona's heart. As is usually the case, a mysterious and unapproachable woman can test even the strongest male friendship. This feature length debut by Louis Garrel (son of director Philippe Garrel) is an unexpected mix of bromance and typically French neurotic, philosophizing cinema. A film for lovers of Judd Apatow comedies and French New Wave classics.
