Storyline

Louis and his Daddy are driving back home. Daddy is a past master at clowning, which does not necessarily make Louis laugh. At times Daddy gets awfully mad, picking on people who don't deserve it. That also does not make Louis laugh. But Daddy IS sweet. He knows how to soothe Louis when he is very very upset. And he can rock-a-bye his baby with a song by Niagara. Daddy has been rather slipshod lately. And ill-shaved. And has had hair-raising nightmares. Louis can burst into tears just because a little girl refuses a sticker he wants to give her. What's wrong with Louis and his Daddy? Written by Guy Bellinger

What the story is about
18 June 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Louis, a young boy, and his father drive, fill the car up with diesel, buy food to eat, and drive again... That's enough for a story. But a lot of things are happening between them. Because in a car all you can do is talk. Everyone would love to have such a Dad : he laughs and plays jokes nonstop. Though Louis doesn't seem convinced. He's even sad. A terrible accident had hit their family.

You understand this story only at the end and i really loved this. It's the only time I saw such a film : it's simple, no action, but it's wonderful. Alan Chabat is surprising. It is also the first time I see a movie that is filmed in a car from the beginning to the end, i really did like it : I laughed, i was emotionally touched, and i was surprised. The father is very touching. A movie to watch.
