Heavy Duty (2019)

Convoi exceptionnel (original title)
Trailer
1:40 | Trailer
This is the story of a guy who goes too fast and a big guy who is too slow. Foster meets Taupin. All this would be trivial if one of them had a scary scenario, the scenario of their lives and their deaths. Just open the pages and shake.

About life and death
14 March 2019 | by FrenchEddieFelsonSee all my reviews

Fable and metaphor on life with the encounter of an apathetic looser (Gérard Depardieu) and a lost deceived husband (Christian Clavier). If you are depressed before the film, you will probably be more after: almost all the characters are completely devoid of passion and enthusiasm. A real ode to death until a cynical but almost happy denouement!
