Storyline

Following the brutal death of their best friend, four guys and the dead man's sister decide to fulfil his last wish, transmitted by video cassette: remove his body from the hospital in Paris, transport it across the border by car(s) and burn it on a beach in Italy where he was formerly happy. An exciting 1000 kilometers trip ensues. On the other hand, when the dead man's father is told by the police about the "theft", he takes a train to chase after them. On the train, he meets a mysterious Japanese girl... Written by L.H. Wong <lhw@sfs.org.sg>

great story, great actors and Emma!
22 June 1999 | by (Metz, France) – See all my reviews

Alain Beigel made a really sensitive movie with a really strong idea: What are you able to do for a dead friend? A few friends decide to respect their dying friend's last wish and steal the dead body of this friend (played by Beigel) in order to carry him on a beach where the body will be burnt. The actors are great (Bruno Solo is really good) and Emma Decaunes (will you marry me?) who plays the dead guy's sister is amazing. This long trip will make these friends realize how deep their friendship can be. Thanks to a dead body in a car.
