François is a middle-aged antique dealer. He has a stylish apartment and a fabulous life, but at a dinner with a group he considers his dearest acquaintances, he is blindsided by the revelation that none of them actually likes him. He's arrogant, self-centered and harsh, and they don't believe he knows the meaning of friendship. His business partner Catherine makes him a bet: if he can produce his best friend, she will let him keep the massive Greek vase he acquired that afternoon on the company tab. If not, it's hers.

Same old story. You meet people, get close to them... then they're gone. Friendship is a myth.
Look who's talking! You make friends with everyone.
Everyone's the same as nobody. Believe me, we're always alone.

I actually watched this film on a crappy bus going from Rosario to Buenos Aires.
The screen was really little and flickering. But the film was so good it actually caught my attention and I really liked it.
One thing I could say was not too good is that you actually know how it's going to develop within the first minutes. It is quite predictable, but its point of view about friendship is really nice and makes you think about it too.
It's something you can watch in family or of course, with your best friend.
I really recommend this movie.
