Movie Info

Wild circumstance leads two disparate immigrants to become unlikely travelling companions on the coastal roads of Brittany in hope of finding romantic adventure. For burly, handsome Spaniard Paco the quest is easy. For puny Russian Nino, it is a challenge, especially after he sets his sights on one woman.

A delightfully subtle and perceptive blend of romantic comedy and road movie.

The adventures are arbitrary, the cuteness of the men grows wearing, and when Nino has an accident with a chainsaw, we can see contrivance shading off into desperation.

A funny, romantic film filled with cozy intimacies and lovely, wide-screen images of the French countryside.

January 1, 2000 | Rating: 4/5

A charmer from France that feels like a throwback to the 1960s, when foreign films flooded art- house cinemas.

One of the most refreshing aspects of Manuel Poirier's Western ... is the way it explodes many common notions about France and French movies.
