TIFF Inspirations: Le Pari

Le Pari*
The Bet

Special Presentation
France, 2014
French/English Subtitles
North American Premiere
99 minutes - Colour

Ever since they were kids, Michel and Daniel have been competitive brothers. For fun, they would bet their allowance on who was the smartest, the fastest and the strongest, but the stakes would be much higher with their latest wager.

The bet: the first one to marry wins the other's portion of inheritance. There's just one catch: the respective woman must be chosen by the other brother.

For Daniel, Michel selects Marie-Claire, an attractive and successful lawyer, who has always eluded him, and for Michel, Daniel selects Geneviève, his beautiful but hot-tempered Vespa mechanic.

The Bet is a funny and clever romantic-comedy that proves love conquers all -- even under wildly deceptive circumstances.

* This is my tribute to the Toronto International Film Festival. It is not a real film.
