French Lesson Plan
In the comical Les Compères, Christine’s 16-year-old son runs away from their Paris home and she sidesteps her stubborn husband and separately convinces two former lovers that they are each the boy’s father. Duped into a sense of responsibility for a son they never knew, each man follows the boy’s trail to Nice. For Lucas, a two-fisted crime reporter, and Pignon, a fragile neurotic, their search through the back alleys of the Riviera is a chance to validate the years of bachelorhood they’ve squandered. After they find Tristan, the two men search for themselves in the boy while packing a decade’s worth of dubious parenting into a few manic days battling Riviera bikers, casino racketeers, and most often each other.
