Synopsis
Vincent and Gabrielle are married, have stable jobs, a healthy son and a harmonious relationship. Yet, after a series of failed attempts at revitalizing their marital routine, Vincent begins a heated affair with another woman and Gabrielle spins into introspection--while hiding from Vincent that she knows of his infidelity. Distraught at the state of her marriage, Gabrielle wanders in anguish and is eventually drawn towards a random man whom she spots inside a Virgin Megastore. The handsome stranger glances at her while both listen to the same song. And mysteriously, the two of them share a fleeting but intensely intimate moment in the middle of an anonymous crowd. When he leaves the store, Gabrielle is even more vulnerable than before. Concomitantly, and in comedy crisis mode, George and Nathalie argue loud and violently--the former suffocating in his wife's feminist demands and the latter feeling trapped in a monogamous relationship. Looking for solace, George buys an expensive Mercedes and turns to his old friends, Vincent and Fred. Although all three men keep each other company, even their weekly soccer games and poker nights do not protect them from mid-life anguish. Fred is still single--and proudly so. He sleeps with a series of spectacular women and plays the role of liberated straight male for his pals. But while Vincent and George struggle, with no success, to understand Fred's sex appeal, they cannot see that Fred also yearns for a change of pace.
