Aro Recommended My Best Friend

 

France 2006, 94 minutes
Dir. Patrice Leconte
Rating: [M]
Genres: Foreign Cinema, Comedy

 

Aroview: Daniel Auteuil lends his lovable persona to this textbook French comedy as a frosty antique dealer who has 10 days to disprove his work colleagues' opinion that he doesn't have a "best friend".

Setting his sights on a lonely taxi driver with a penchant for trivia (played charmingly by Dany Boon) it becomes a mismatched partnership that somehow works. Boasting a similar comic crispness and warmth to Auteuil's work with Francis Veber (THE CLOSET, THE VALET), this couples the expected laughs with genuine pathos (what are friends for?), and memorably climaxes on the game show "Who Want To Be A Millionaire?" - en Francais, of course!
