Stéphane, a musician thirsting for success, remains unbelievably optimistic despite a talent for attracting problems. Thanks to his imminent election to parliament, the insolently elegant Fabrice is brilliantly self-assured. In comparison, Paul, manager of a shopping mall, is clumsily tender but truly generous. The three of them make up the perfect man, the modern-day Prince Charming. Their combined qualities, minus their faults, has led Marie to take them simul- taneously as lovers. Each of them proposes to her in turn. Marie panics and decides to leave them. Their meeting then becomes inevitable... All this leads to a lot of hassle and a few embarrassing situations. But nothing can stop the perfect man. Especially when he's made up of three friends united for better... and for worse.


"The only amusing thing about a love affair is the resulting chaos. So I filmed the chaos of love. Each time a woman leaves us, she leaves something behind... memories, laughter, sometimes a child. Here, Marie leaves the three men in her life and gives them a wonderful gift: the friendship that ensues between them. Not bad, huh? I like ordinary people. There are no guns in this film, just emotions, no violence, just friendship. There are no super models turned actress, just brilliant actresses, bursting with talent." (Xavier Gélin)
