I am looking for this movie
4 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Hi,

I am a big fan of JP Cassel and I am looking for this movie in video format or, even better, in DVD. A lot of my friends are telling me about this comedy and I looking forward to see it. Most of the actors playing in "A male companion" contribute to my love of movies. JP Cassel, especially, is playing a role I loved in the novel (that I read). Catherine Deneuve knows how to act in front of the camera and can drag you in her character. If you have seen this movie, can you tell me more about it ? But most of all can anyone help me finding it?

Thanks, Magali
