My Best Friend: How did I miss this gem?

I watched My Best Friend (2006) this evening on Netflix (don’t know how I missed the original run) and fell in love with the movie. It’s a simple story of a wealthy antique dealer who focuses on things rather than relationships. He worries about his own mortality; specifically, who will attend his funeral when he passes away and begins an alternately warm and comedic pursuit to find a best friend.


Along the way, Francois (Daniel Auteuil) hooks up with a  taxi driver named Bruno (Dany Boon), an unusual mentor who teaches him the lessons of making friends and being a friend: being social, smiling and sincere. 


My favorite lines:

Bruno: Isn’t there anybody you can call at 3 a.m. in case you have a big problem?

François: I don’t have any big problem.

Bruno: Yes, you have one, you can’t call anybody at 3AM!


You can read a synopsis of the film here. Watching it made my think about whom I could call at 3AM. Highly recommended!
