Gregory, a theater director from New York, is the more talkative of the pair. He relates to Shawn his tales of dropping out, traveling around the world, and experiencing the variety of ways people live, such as a monk who could balance his entire weight on his fingertips. Shawn listens avidly, but questions the value of Gregory’s seeming abandonment of the pragmatic aspects of life.
Plot: Wallace Shawn and Andre Gregory, apparently playing themselves, share their lives over the course of an evening meal at a restaurant.

Terrific and profound
Probably one of the more enlightening and profound films I’ve seen in quite a while. The film revolves around a conversation had over dinner between two playwrights with a rather different outlook on meaninglessness and the absurdity of the day to day. In an almost uncanny way the film predicts our furthered obsession with comforts and rejection of science, it’s really fascinating at how much it accurately predicts about the way we “live” in the 21st century. If I had any complaints I think the editing and cinematography gets a bit monotonous after a while, I broke up my viewing into two sittings. Quite a lot of thought provoking and meaningful ideas here that are far too numerous to get into without seeing it for yourself.
Have to have (or have had) a lot of existential curiosity to be able to enjoy it
My Dinner with Andre is one of those films you may well hear about, because it is really pretty different. This is the kind of film where you have to have (or have had) a lot of existential curiosity to be able to enjoy it. The less you think you know about this world, the more interesting you will find Andre’s tales to be. Beyond that, you may still find it interesting if you can relate to the quest for meaning and happiness and you think of yourself as a student of human interactions. On the other hand, if you have low tolerance for weirdness and fancy, then you are likely to find yourself to be irritated by it all. There is a question of how high to rate it as a film since it seems to be just a recorded conversation. I rate it down just a bit on that account (seems unfair to other films), though I find there are some subtleties to be picked up on, and I found Wallace Shawn to give a pretty good performance with his sincere and mildly intense reactions to Andre (and at one point finds something to be INCONCEIVABLE!). Recommended to artist- and entrepreneurial types that find themselves often wondering over the edge of the World of Appearances.
