ProGood acting, interesting characters

Cons-

Manufacturer's product description

This quaint and amusing tale from director Patrice Leconte pairs Milan (Johnny Hallyday), a nomadic urban cowboy, with Manesquier (Jean Rochefort), a reserved and very settled curmudgeon. The two meet on the train in a French suburb, and before long the overly trusting Manesquier has invited Milan to be his house guest because the local hotels are closed for the night. The two men cautiously get to know each other, and they find that they have many things in common, even though they appear on the surface to be utter opposites. But deep down, they both desire to live life in the shoes of the other, even if just for a short period of time. And in a subtle, mutually understood way, they do just that.
