He is now attracted to a 40ish actress, Clara (Anne Alvaro), who, for her part, long ago gave up on love. Meanwhile, Clara's friend Manie (Agnes Jaoui) begins a romance with Castella's dyed-in-the-wool bachelor chauffeur, Bruno (Alain Chabat), before switching over to Castella's bodyguard, Franck Moreno (Gerard Lanvin). A very good romantic comedy. The film received an Academy Award nomination for Best Foreign Film.
