Directed by: GUSTAVE KERVERN & BENOÎT DELÉPINE
Starring: Gérard Depardieu, Benoît Poelvoorde, Gustave Kervern, Vincent Lacoste
The irreverent directing duo Benoît Delépine and Gustave Kervern (Louise-Michel, 2008, Mammuth, 2010) reunite with favourites Gérard Depardieu and Benoît Poelvoorde for this riotous, road trip romp which literally bounces through the wine-growing regions of France.

Jean (Depardieu) and Bruno (Poelvoorde) are a father-and-son team of cattle farmers who are attending an agricultural trade fair in Paris. Bruno, however, has lost interest in the farming life, preferring instead to drink his way to oblivion (and through his personal crisis) in the fair’s wine hall. When Bruno has one drink too many, Jean promptly decides that a tour of the real wine country is just the thing to help his son better appreciate France’s rural traditions. He enlists a young Parisian taxi driver (Vincent Lacoste, Eden, AF FFF15) as their personal chauffeur, and the three embark on a journey replete with crazy characters, sexual encounters and general chaos at every turn.

This is an irresistibly cheeky, delightfully sentimental ode to the bond between father and son, so take a seat and enjoy the ride.
