There was no need to confirm that Gérard Depardieu is great, but this film resizes once again the French actor and gives him back his Obelix belly to place him into a motorized road movie with enough sentimental and autobiographical charge as to be dedicated to his son Guillaume –who was recently deceased– without becoming a funeral or morbid tale but rather the vital story of a man struggling to be in perpetual motion. Reproducing his own seduction drive, his erotic physique du rôle, with that acting style that has such a film-animal quality to it, Depardieu is a road beast driving his Seventies-style motorcycle with no hands, drifting against both the wind and any kind of security, in order to experience an unexpected adventure with anesthetized adrenaline and a liberating spirit. And so, in their fourth film, the duo Delépine & Kervern shapes up their particular style of comic, philosophical, physical, romantic journey, thanks to the revealing heart of a sexagenarian giant who resists retirement in order to keep learning how to conquer other fields of emancipation.
