Storyline

In Paris, Vincent Larchet and Mathias Warkhevytch have been best friends since childhood. They share a rented apartment belonging to Vincent's father, who is an important anesthetist of a hospital in Paris, and with whom Vincent does not have a good relationship. Vincent does not work or study, having left Law School after being dumped by his girlfriend Alessia Massari. He is a selfish liar, cheater, lazy and disloyal man that likes to criticize others to protect himself. However, he is worshiped by Mathias, who misses his former girlfriend, Natacha, and is working on a never ending thesis. On Matthias' birthday, Vincent breaks into his father's apartment to celebrate with his friends, but his father unexpectedly returns from a trip and finds a complete mess. He challenges Vincent and Matthias to survive in the streets of Paris for seven days and seven nights with seven Euros. They accept the bet and along the period, Vincent learns the value of the unconditional friendship and ... Written by Claudio Carvalho, Rio de Janeiro, Brazil

Two friends and a bet
21 January 2007 | by tux-12See all my reviews

This film, like many French films of this kind, will be soon forgotten. It is watchable if you don't expect much action and sensational twists. Anemone is on screen less than 2 minutes at the end of the film, but Guy Bedos, as Vincent's father, has a more important role. Patrick Mille plays a similar guy as he played in La Doublure, a womaniser and a looser always living as a parasite, squatting his father's flat and praising laziness. One evening his father and his friends have enough of this and bet with him, that he would not survive 7 days without their help. He accepts the challenge and goes out across Paris with his best friend Mathias, with only 7 Euros in pocket. The rest of the film is about this journey that will teach the 2 young lads a lot about life and friendship.

In conclusion the 2 main characters are not played badly, but the whole story is a bit slow, and lack of elements of surprise. There are however some nice and unusual views of pedestrian areas of Paris.
