My Best Friend (Mon Meilleur Ami)
Source: Catholic News Service
A ruthless, self-centered antiques dealer (Daniel Auteuil) must prove to his disbelieving business partner (Julie Gayet) that he has a best friend, but after learning that none of his acquaintances consider him a friend, he decides that a good-natured cab driver (Dany Boon) may fit the bill. Director and co-writer Patrice Leconte's perceptive study on the nature of friendship begins as a lightweight comedy, but builds in bittersweet profundity as it goes along, and has a nail-biting climax involving, of all things, the TV show "Who Wants to Be a Millionaire?" In French, with subtitles. A few rough and crude expletives, a lesbian character and an unethical act. The USCCB Office for Film & Broadcasting classification is A-III -- adults. The Motion Picture Association of America rating is PG-13 -- parents strongly cautioned. Some material may be inappropriate for children under 13.
