Editor's NoteXavier (Romain Duris), a wayward 25-year-old French guy, is encouraged by his father's friend to study Spanish and Economics--these skills will ensure his lucrative future, and since Xavier doesn't have much keeping him in Paris, other than his hippie mother and possessive girlfriend, he flies to Barcelona to participate in a study abroad program. Upon his arrival, Xavier meets a gregarious Parisian and his laconic but beautiful wife. Initially, Xavier rejects their friendship, but the couple bails him out when he cannot find an apartment, inviting him stay on their couch. Frantic to find his own lodgings, he interviews with an eclectic group of fellow exchange students, whose are from all over Western Europe. They find Xavier to be a suitable roommate, and the fun begins as the apartment becomes a hub of international activity. Xavier begins to shed his waywardness, becoming increasingly comfortable with his passions and pursuits. Set in the magnificence of Barcelona, the film is a nostalgic travelogue through Xavier's youthful and anxious wanderings. Politically, the film explores issues of ethnicity and international stereotypes, but for the most part its story is shot through a comedic lens.
