From Éric Besnard (Delicious) comes A Great Friend. Packed with laughs, A Great Friend lets audiences experience the stunning vistas of the Auvergne-Rhône Alps, in a charming tale of friendship. Vincent (Lambert Wilson, De Gaulle) is a high-flying entrepreneur.

One day single-handedly sailing his yacht, the next, being interviewed on national television. While driving on a rugged mountain road, Vincent’s car breaks down, temporarily interrupting his frantic lifestyle. Pierre (Grégory Gadebois, Delicious) has distanced himself from the modern world, living in the middle of sublime nature. While Vincent waits for his car trouble to be sorted, Pierre offers him a place to stay.

What the two men soon realise, is that their personalities could not be more different. While Vincent and Pierre initially struggle to see eye-to-eye, they eventually find themselves wondering… deep down, are they really each living the lives they want to live?
