Synopsis by Bhob Stewart
Jerome Cormuau directed this French film (with French-English dialogue), a romantic comedy set in Los Angeles. After a dispute with his roommate, free-lance photojournalist Marc (Jean-Marc Barr) needs a place to stay and gets an invite from pal Victor (Philippe Duquesne). Victor's lover Alex (Frederic Bouraly) objects and concocts a scheme to get Marc to live with his friend Lisa (Ophelie Winter), who just threw her husband out of the house. Soured on straight men, Lisa wants company but prefers a homosexual roommate -- so Marc must pretend to be gay in order to move into Lisa's beachfront mansion. Shown at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
