Boyfriends and Girlfriends(1987/Éric Rohmer)

L'Ami de mon amie, Eric Rohmer

Middle-class Parisian suburbs: Blanche (Emmanuelle Chaulet) and Lea (Sophie Renoir), office worker and student, meet and become friends. Lea is going out with Fabien (Eric Viellard), but is thinking of leaving him. Blanche falls for Lea’s handsome and witty friend Alexandre (François-Eric Gendron), but is tongue-tied whenever she meets him. Lea goes on holiday and Blanche, still smitten with the dashing Alexandre, begins to get know Fabien.
