A delightfully droll comedy, showing as a tribute to its stars, screen legend Jean Rochefort and French pop icon Johnny Hallyday, who both passed away in 2017.

"a well-tuned character piece starring screen legend Jean Rochefort and French pop icon Johnny Hallyday as strangers with nothing in common whose chance meeting sparks a powerful friendship."

"It has real actors, a real story, a real point, and is the work of a real filmmaker, Patrice Leconte."

"There's a special pleasure in watching Rochefort and Hallyday."

"The chemistry between the two leads is remarkable."

"This is an actor's picture, with Hallyday's craggy menace chiming perfectly with Rochefort's rueful charm."
