Catalonian Paco is a traveling rep for a shoe manufacturer. When he stops to pick up Russian emigree hitchhiker Nino, Paco soon finds himself on the side of the road with everything stolen out from under him. Local gift shop owner Marinette gives the Spaniard a lift. Their mutual attraction manifests itself quickly, and Paco, who was fired over the stolen-car episode, hangs around. When he happens to spot Nino in the same town, he beats up the scrawny Russian, who lands in the hospital. Oddly enough, this marks the beginning of a beautiful friendship. Paco and Nino soon take the trip down the road together. Written by
'Western' shows all different walks life can have in store. Two immigrants, a Russian and a Spaniard, travel throughout western France. Not only the landscapes look a bit British, but also the dialogues and characters remind of British movies. The scene shot on a terrace with an Ivory Coaster from Bretagne is very funny. But other scenes show how senseless life can be.
I like road movies and this one of the best movies in its genre.
