L'ami de mon amie

Éric Rohmer France, 1987

bartkl's rating of the film My Girlfriend's Boyfriend

A playful film in which we are taught how comically wrong our intuitions can be. As always, Rohmer knows how to balance realistic emotions and social interactions, and playful situations that are just unlikely enough to happen in real life to serve the comical purpose. On another note: how incredibly beautiful are those suburbs of Paris? Beautiful film in each and every way.
