Éric Besnard, the creative force behind Delicious (AF FFF21), whips up another tantalising blend of culinary delights and human bonds in this unexpected bromance. Vincent (Lambert Wilson, Happy 50, AF FFF23) a hyperactive and successful businessman, is the founder of the largest European dating site. Meanwhile, Pierre (Grégory Gadebois, Maria Into Life, AF FFF23) lives in seclusion like a true hermit in the mountains, accompanied by his dog and distanced from the modern world he has long renounced.

When these two polar-opposites unexpectedly cross paths, their encounter disrupts their lives and prompts questions about their radically different lifestyles. Are they genuinely content?

Set against a stunning alpine backdrop, this buddy comedy reveals a delightful odd-couple dynamic. Through fiery arguments, abundant grimaces, suppressed emotions and shared omelets, the two men discover that friendship can actually thrive through differences.

Invite your best mate, grab a glass of French wine at the bar and prepare to lose yourself in the breathtaking beauty of the French Alps, where laughter, friendship, and unexpected connections come together and leave you yearning for more.
