Standing Ovations in Cannes for the winner of the Quinzaine: for an irresistible road movie with intoxicating images, absurd humor and a bitter sweet finale. Overweight loner Yvan, his best years behind him, sells American used cars. One night he finds a burglar under the bed: young drifter Elie, emaciated and touching in his helplessness, Reluctantly Yvan agrees to drive broke Elie to the Belgian-French border where his parents live. During their trip through the spectacular Wallonian landscape, the grumpy Yvan grows quite fond of his charge... “Road movie that poignantly juggles absurdism and melancholy.” (New York Times)
