Mona is one of those alluring French beauties that drive men crazy. She toils at a Paris train station sandwicherie, where even her most mundane activity appears as incandescent to Vincent, her secret admirer. Vincent feels just as much a peripheral figure in his personal life as he does in his professional life—he’s an aspiring actor stuck doing extra work—and is perpetually harassing his only friend, the very handsome Abel, for advice. What Vincent doesn’t know is that Mona is on a conditional parole and spends her nights at a prison where she must clock in and out at precisely monitored times. Abel, meanwhile, spies an opportunity for himself with Mona—and who wouldn’t?

Mona is played by the intensely magnetic Iranian actress Golshifteh Farahani, star of the unforgettable 2013 Festival selection The Patience Stone. Abel, meanwhile, is played by the popular French actor Louis Garrel, who makes his directorial debut with this charming, dégagé romance based on a script he co-wrote with Christophe Honoré, who directed him in My Mother and Love Songs. As befits the star of Bertolluci’s woozy The Dreamers and his own father Philippe Garrel’s Jealousy, a fascination with the id, and the comic sexual fallouts that circle round it, lies at the heart of Two Friends. – Jaie Laplante
