Friday, April 6 at 6:30 p.m. and 8:30 p.m. - My Best Friend (2006) Starring Daniel Auteuil, Dany Boon, Julie Gayet, Julie Durand, and Jacques Mathou; Rated PG-13; 94 minutes. French with English subtitles.
François is a gently ruthless art trader who will do nearly anything to make a deal, and when his colleague Catherine throws him a birthday party, someone points out that all the guests are business associates, not personal friends. While François protests that he does indeed have friends, Catherine calls him on it and makes a bet. François agrees to the challenge, but while going through his address book, he begins to realize he really doesn’t have any especially close friends. Over the course of several days, François keeps running into Bruno, a gregarious and friendly taxi driver, and while Bruno’s personality rubs François the wrong way, he notices that the cabbie has a way of making people like him. Eager to win his bet with Catherine, François recruits Bruno to give him a crash course in making friends and influencing people, hoping to find a buddy before his deadline.
