Gauthier is a handsome and famous soap opera star; Serge is a serious stage actor who has renounced his profession. When Gauthier visits Serge to convince him to join him in a production of Moliere's The Misanthrope, a battle of wits ensues over who will play the lead role of Alceste. Between rehearsals, the two bike along the windswept beaches and rival for the affections of a beautiful Italian divorcee. As tensions mount, Gauthier begins to wonder what are Serge's true plans and motivations.

This dramatic movie proves the adage that "life mimics art". A pair of aging actors at opposite ends of their careers are both searching for new meaning in life. One succeeds ... partially. This is an "art house" movie.

It says this has English subtitles, but I couldn't get them to work for some reason. Disappointing :-(

life and art, each informing and imitating the other. great ride through some Moliere with a couple of female distractions.

I quite enjoyed this film and was surprised at some of the negative reviews.
