In this Australian Television Premiere Serge (Gerard Depardieu) retires from his long term job after tuning 60, but soon becomes restless at home. His wife persuades him to go and claim his pension, however once there he runs into walls of bureaucracy because of gaps in his pension history.
To receive full benefits he must uncover his missing records, which are scattered throughout France. He dusts off the cobwebs of his 1970s Munch Mammut motorcycle, and embarks on a countryside roadtrip – reliving adolescent memories and rediscovering old relationships, including his estranged brother.
Nominated for the Golden Bear at the 60th Berlin International Film Festival.
