In the vein of French comedies such as The Dinner Game and The Closet, My Friends, My Loves is the story of two divorced guys, Mathais and Antoine who become a modern day odd couple when they move in together in London, along with their two kids.
Mathais and Antoine soon discover that while establishing house rules is easy, handling relationships with the opposite sex is another matter! Domestic bliss is jeopardised when Mathias falls for the charms of Audrey, another French expat living in London.
Note: this is a foreign language film (French) with English sub-titles
As long as you have a good coffee (hot chocolate if you prefer) and some nice munchies to hand, you could definitely do worse than watching My Friends My Loves - a life comedy on the nature of relationships. But I have to say the word 'unlikely' springs to mind in a recurring fashion as the events unfold.
A movie exploring the nature of human relationships has inherent potential to be quite funny.Yet this story comes over a bit contrived at every turn. It is not really bad, just not particularly engaging or believable.
Alright to fill some time if you're sure you don't have something better to do, but I wouldn't clear an evening for it.
