surprisingly engaging film about men and friendship
This is a story of 4 men--who meet on a regular basis,share a friendship that has seen good times and bad. It is a refreshing tale about french men (and their women).
I enjoyed this film thoroughly because it gave me an insight into the heart of men--their emotions, reactions, foibles, games...and also how they committed to support each other and in one case, challenge one of the guys to forgive his "wayward" wife.
I did not want the movie to end when it did as I wanted to see more of their interaction. The actors were well-chosen,they seemed to share a friendship on a personal basis as well. Good story, good acting...
