What is it about? Félix and Chérif set off from Paris to the south, spontaneously chasing after a crush who is spending the summer there. The clash of the classes already kicks off on the ride share. They signed up pretending to be girls, which Edouard, the uptight car owner with his bicycle on the roof, naturally resents. When the car breaks down on arrival, the three form a community of fate, whereas the young woman reacts very evasively to the surprise visit.

Guillaume Brac ranks amongst the outstanding directors of his generation. A touch of Rohmer and Rozier wafts through his films, which celebrate the moment when slapstick, drama and romance meet. It is a cinema of sincerity towards its characters. Even in the light-flooded À l'Abordage, they are never betrayed for a punch line. A humanistic hymn and a delightful pleasure.
