Théo (Théophile Baquet) and Daniel (Ange Dargent) receive derisive nicknames from their Versaillais classmates (Gasoline and Microbe, respectively) and suffer a slew of young adolescent insults and abuses. They find solace in each other and their passions, including drawing, junk repurposing, and real-life Foley artistry. Like true Gondry characters (and Gondry himself), the two friends’ riposte to societal indignities is inventive, fantastic, and adventurous: They channel the Elkhart spirit and build an RV that launches them on a road trip into the French countryside.

Co-presented by the Nanovic Institute for European Studies.
