Best friends Arman and Benjamin are thirty-something, single and going nowhere. When Arman is mugged it turns out to be a blessing as it brings Amélie into his life. But then Benjamin has a stroke, and over the course of a couple of years the lives of Amélie, Arman and Benjamin will become ever more entangled.
An unexpected, whimsical tale of ennui and the transformative power of calamity, 2 Autumns, 3 Winters is a deliciously offbeat film from up-and-coming French indie maestro Sébastien Betbeder. Each of the three principals recount their highs and lows - often as they undergo them - to camera and with a fetching mix of impulsive disclosure and sheer bemusement. The film fairly jumps with pop-up references to the films and music and food that lend pleasure and insight to the way these thoughtful, unassuming, likeable people live their lives - and tell their stories.
