French Film Review: Presque

Two men who hardly know each other and who have nothing in common take a road trip from Lausanne to the south of France – in a hearse. Louis (Bernard Campan), a sworn bachelor, is the director of a funeral home and is so devoted to his job, he can’t even contemplate retiring.

Forty-year-old Igor (Alexandre Jollien) has a sharp mind and a disabled body thanks to cerebral palsy. Fond of philosophy, his travel companions are Socrates, Spinoza and Nietzsche as he stays away from the world, friendship and sexuality. A set of coincidences brings these two men together and they set off in a hearse for an unconventional road-trip that will teach them to see beyond their own issues and will, ultimately, force them to rethink their lives.
