An Adult Comedy (Contains some adult language)

Set in Paris, the story revolves around three friends, Serge, Marc and Yvan- who find their previously solid 15-year friendship on shaky ground when Serge buys an expensive painting. Serge is proud of his 200,000 franc acquisition fully expecting the approval of his friends. Marc is open about his distaste for the painting, but are there other factors clouding his judgment? Yvan, who is getting married soon, tells Serge he likes the painting, but laughs about it with Marc behind Serge’s back. As their arguments become less theoretical and more personal, they border on destroying their friendship. Contains some adult language.
