The Chef’s Wife (On a failli être amies) by Anne Le Ny (2015, 91 min.). This charming and touching comedy pairs two of France’s most celebrated actresses—Karin Viard and Emmanuelle Devos—as friends who want to make the most out of life. Marithé (Viard) works in an adult training center helping others find their calling. Her new client Carole (Devos) seems to have it all. But Carole can no longer stand the pressure of working with her husband Sam, a respected chef, nor does she want to live in his shadow. The two women hit it off immediately, but complications arise when Marithé falls for Sam and she suddenly has very personal motives for helping Carole to start over. In French with English subtitles.
