You have no friends!

This is probably the cruelest thing one can say to an acquaintance.
But, that is what happens to the central character at the beginning of the French movie Mon Meilleur Ami (My Best Friend). He is challenged to prove within 10 days that he actually does have a best friend.
This is an amusing and touching movie about the value, struggles, fragility, and rarity of friendship in the modern secular professional age. I found it refreshing (and strange) to see  a movie that was just about platonic relationships rather than romantic ones.

  1. I find French movies much more emotionally intense that American films. The French are much more willing to drag you out of your emotional comfort zone and so you really feel what the characters are feeling.

    The fact that this movie was able to pull so hard on the heart strings while also being about a platonic relationship is even more impressive.
