Longer than seemed possible
I'm not a lover of the road movie. Having sat through Harry and Tonto, Thelma and Louise and any number of X and Y equivalents, I'm ready to abandon the genre. Cavalier's film just wasn't that interesting, being only a series of vignettes of no great interest (shame to see Nathalie Baye doing a cameo near the beginning only to disappear from the story). The truth is these four guys are losers, and there is very little to learn from losers. They make the same stupid macho mistakes, lose their wives/girlfriends, then mope about it. Klouk even proposes to the others that they try to impregnate his wife since he is infertile. God, if I thought one of these idiots could make my wife pregnant, I'd have them all castrated.
I will say that Etienne Chicot, whose work I have admired over many years does a splendid job playing Charles, a guy who manages to stay on this side of the law, but only just.
