Storyline

Five childhood friends have always dreamed of being roommates. When the opportunity arises for them to move in together, Julia, Vadim, Nestor, and Timothée jump at the chance, especially when Samuel offers to pay half the rent. Hardly have they moved in when Samuel suddenly winds up penniless. He decides not to tell the others and instead starts selling weed to pay his share. But not everyone is cut out to be a dealer, and when the going gets tough, Samuel has no choice but to turn to the only family he has left: his friends. Written by Tenkei

Amusing and heartfelt French Comedy
2 November 2016 | by t-dooley-69-386916See all my reviews

Five friends have always dreamed of living together and then the perfect apartment comes up and they just have to have it. One of their number – Samule (Pierre Niney) has a wealthy father who is bank rolling him rather well. So the short fall of his friends he says he is happy to make up.

Now all is going fine until his funds dry up and he is desperate for a way of staving off the inevitable. So he does what any self respecting student would do and he becomes a dealer in weed – nice. But once you dip your little toe in the murky pond of the underworld it is only a matter of time before you become tainted by all its foul corruption – and I am glad to say hilarity ensues – sort of.

Now this is a comedy but there are some serious issues being dealt with here as well as the inevitable relationship issues and so it is not crammed full with laughs but it is still fairly amusing and it is very likable as the characters are all generally very real and nice in a good way. So if you want a bit of Gallic fun then this might work for you.
