The shot of Julot's Volvo driving down the mountain freezes for an instant before the explosion, which supposedly comes from beneath the car, goes off. It is obvious that the fireball is superimposed over the shot and that the car was untouched. See more »

Bad movie but real historical context
11 February 2016 | by simpliciussSee all my reviews

Just some few comments and justifications about the plot.

The french unionist are also farmers. Historically, last four or five decades, every time french farmers are in strike or perform any protest about their salaries or because of low prize of their products they use to destroy the trucks and or the fruits from Spain because in their opinion Spaniards are unfair producers (best prices, best weather, more production, best quality). French police use to be absent during these vandalic acts.

Under the UE laws there no reasons to make this, but it still happens occasionally. However nowadays it is more usual see French farmers stopping lorries importing farm produce from Spain, Portugal and Morocco, in a border protest over what they call unfair price competition.

Sometimes farmers parked tractors to block several roads near the borders. The farmers' protests over food prices have disrupted traffic across France every year.

The movie is time-located just in worst years of the Spanish-French farmers relations.
