Synopsis

Two French actors portray two French actors, friends at odds with one another in every possible way, except with regard to their love for performing Moliere's "The Misanthrope". Gauthier; tall, handsome, and the beneficiary of a leading role in a wildly popular, wildly ridiculous soap opera; he is a beloved cosmetic surgeon who "saves lives". Regarding the random nature of his good fortune, Gauthier is both embarrassed and defensive; he seeks to re-establish his acting bona-fides by starring in and directing Moliere on the Paris stage.
