Samir Benhima is a delinquent used to shenanigans and little stunts. He lives in « La source », a popular suburbs on the outskirts of a provincial French town. One night, while trying to steal a 205 Gti 1.9 (a successful French ersatz of the legendary German Golf Gti) with his bunch of no-hopers, he discovers a surf painting in the garage and it's an immediate revelation: he decides to become a professional surfer. No matter what! Two tiny details: he never saw the sea and he does not know how to swim. Thanks to Tony Lamouche interpreted by Christopher Lambert
, Samir will vainly try to satisfy this fanciful dream. Vainly? It does not matter... at all. The route one takes is more important than the destination!
This French movie is 'inspired' by a true story. Nice with moderate expectation.
