Yves is living in hiding with his sons, Sylvain and Pierre. Two years before, he had abducted them from their mother after a judge ruled against him. But the boys are growing up now, and constantly being on the run deprives them of their adolescent dreams. Hidden on an island in the Loire, Sylvain, the younger, meets Gilda: love at first sight... and they are on their way to the good life?Written by
A father defying a court order has taken his two sons on the run, living out of a couple of caravans in the Loire valley. An early and revealing moment has him slap a cigarette out of the mouth of the 17 year old and tell him "no service comes without a tree dies or a man toils." The kids are feeling the isolation and take the horse into town, bringing the locals out in pursuit and starting the trio on the run again. Dad and the younger boy escape in a moored river punt (a bit of Huck Finn here) and the kid encounters a bikini girl angler, eventually facing him with a choice - at a cross roads yet.
Strong Performances, nice conflict of lyrical setting and hostile events and issues that we haven't seen in a movie before. Sympathy swinging between the parents is something new.
More subtle and probably better than the similar U.S. RUNNING ON EMPTY.
