Storyline

Two adventurers and best friends, Roland and Manu, are the victims of a practical joke that costs Manu his pilot's license. With seeming contrition, the jokesters tell Roland and Manu about a crashed plane lying on the ocean floor off the coast of Congo stuffed with riches. The adventurers set off to find the loot. Going with them is Laetitia, an artistic young woman who treats them like brothers, plays along with their schemes, makes sculptures of found objects, and dreams of buying an old fort at the mouth of the Charente. The Congo tip turns out to be a double cross, and the adventurers must pick up the pieces. A trip to Fort Boyard completes the circle. Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

True adventurers
14 December 2003 | by vik-8See all my reviews

In my view, one of the taglines of this movie is aspiration of human nature for 'exploring new horizons' - it doesn't matter where - in performing a stunt with the small plane, in building a novel racing car engine, in establishing a new art direction, in finding something on the bottom of the sea - that may not exist... You may recall how Laetitia looses interest in her dancing partner when he indicates that he doesn't know why all these things are needed.
