French Comedy "My Best Friend" Screens Tuesday Night
"My Best Friend" ("Mon Meilleur Ami"), a 2006 comedy from France, will be shown as part of the library's international film series on Tuesday, September 13, at 6:30 p.m. The film begins as a lighthearted comedy as François, an antiques dealer who is disliked by everyone, enters into a bet with one of his colleagues that he can come up with someone who calls him his best friend within a week. At stake is a priceless antique vase he prizes. In the meantime, Bruno, a taxi driver whose goal is to be a contestant on a television quiz show, crosses his path. It's a movie with flair and charm and also a bittersweet comment on the true meaning of friendship. Coffee and French biscuits (cookies) will be served.
