A dour funeral director and philosophical delivery man make an oddball duo as they embark on an unconventional road trip in this captivating French comedy full of joie de vivre.
Workaholic funeral director Louis (Bernard Campan) is kind but distant with his clients, both dead and alive. Igor (Alexandre Jollien), a grocery delivery man, was born with cerebral palsy. He’s a deep thinker, but despite his doting mum is a solitary soul. A chance encounter kickstarts Louis and Igor on a journey across France and towards friendship and understanding. Along the way they discuss everything from Nietzsche to being pigeon-holed. Inspired by the real-life experiences of award-winning author and philosopher Jollien (In Praise of Weakness, In Search of Wisdom), who has found success as a major thinker, spiritual teacher and actor.
