Late August, Early September 1998
"It is in the thirties we want friends," F. Scott Fitzgerald wrote. "In the forties, we know that they can't save us any more than love did." This beautifully orchestrated French film directed by Olivier Assayas provides a thought-provoking and engaging meditation upon this truth.

Gabriel Deshays (Mathieu Amalric) has great respect for his friend Adrien Willer (Francois Cluzet), the author of four novels. He persuades him to participate in a documentary on his work. Adrien is secretly dating a 16-year-old girl. He has told no one, including Gabriel.

Their friendship begins to crack when Adrien is hospitalized and undergoes a serious operation. Gabriel doesn't handle it very well and the only one who's really there for Adrien is Jenny (Jeanne Balibar), Gabriel's ex-girlfriend. Although she still feels connected with him, Gabriel has begun a new affair with Anne (Virginie Ledoyen), a self-destructive young woman who has a knack for deflating a relationship once she gets serious about a man.
