Debut directors Olivier Babinet and Fred Kihn have made a road-movie in the vein of Jim Jarmusch’s Down by Law that has moments of great charm,packed with movie references. Dealing to some extent with the nature of film making its quirkiness may bring it a cult following.The story hinges on a depressive Z-list actor called Franky (Pablo Nicomedes)and his manager Arsene (Olivier Gourmet)who, in a last-ditch bid for fame andfortune, set off in a stolen car to travel to a mid-summer film festival inside thePolar Circle. The objective is to track down the legendary director George Sarrineff (Nils Utsi) and convince him of the bankability of their latest project.Along theway they pick up Douglas (Bakary Sangare), a mysterious traveller sporting a sculpted Afro haircut and given to gnomic utterances.With passing nods at Jarmusch, Aki Kaurismaki, David Lynch, Jean-Luc Godard,B-movies, zombie movies, and rockabilly ymusic, this has a wide-ranging appeal.
