France | 2015 | 105 minutes | Bruno Podalydés

October 25, 2015

Packed with visual flair, delightful banter, and a whiff of Wes Anderson, this bittersweet coming-of-middle-age comedy follows 50-something graphic designer Michel (director Bruno Podalydés), who, longing for a sense of freedom and adventure, takes up kayaking. Michel's virgin voyage is a pastoral adventure, but it doesn't lead him very far down stream.
