Jérémie is facing failure on all fronts: his career as a filmmaker is floundering and his love life is tanking thanks to his chronic jealousy. In the face of this defeat, he retreats from Paris to Limosin to stay with his intrusive, overbearing, and loving mother while he struggles to find his way again.

WHAT ARE CRITICS SAYING?

70

Film Threat by Alex Saveliev

The individual sequences, along with the confidence with which the two lead actors navigate the sometimes-turbulent currents, elevate the film into the realm of art. After all, sometimes it’s okay for the whole to be less than the sum of its parts.

Screen Rant by Debopriyaa Dutta

Equal parts hilarious and heartwarming, My Best Part is a sweet exploration of the absurdities of life and a celebration of what's worth living for.
75

TheWrap by Katie Walsh

It’s an utterly fascinating, mysterious, and often experimental character study of someone who is hard to understand because they fundamentally don’t understand themselves.
63

Movie Nation by Roger Moore

Director, co-writer and star Nicolas Maury (“Dear Prudence,” “Paris, je t’aime”) serves up a dry comedy that invites us to watch Jérémie suffer and laugh at him as he haplessly copes with everything confronting him over the course of this lightly-amusing film (titled “Garçon chiffon” in French).
