A warm, funny, literate comedy in which two French actors portray two French actors, friends at odds with one another in every possible way, except their love of Molière’s The Misanthrope. When not arguing or rehearsing scenes while biking, they consider their options as personified by a local porn actress and an attractive Italian divorcée, as well as the lure of island real estate.

Thank God, or the Comédie-Française, whichever is older and senior, that good French performers still know how to make ancient French literature come alive for the popcorn crowd.”  (Nigel Andrews – Financial Times)
