A shy and insecure delivery truck driver accidentally arrives at the scene of a major crime, picks up two bags of cash, and hides them.
Pierre-Paul Daoust, 36, an intellectual with a PhD in philosophy is forced to work as a deliveryman to afford a decent living. One day, while delivering a parcel, he gets caught in a hold up gone terribly wrong: two dead and millions in money bags laying on the ground. Pierre-Paul is confronted with a dilemma: leave empty handed or take the money and run?
This new Denys Arcand film takes a witty yet touching look at, as only Arcand knows how, the predominance of money in a society where all other values seem to have crumbled.
“I LOVE THE WAY ARCAND BLENDS DIFFERENT GENRES. THIS IS SATIRE, A ROMANCE AND ALSO A THRILLER”
- Lael Lowenstein, FilmWeek (KPCC – NPR Los Angeles)
“…A THOUGHTFUL, GOOD-HEARTED FILM FULL OF UNEXPECTED TURNS, THAT HAS SOMETHING IN PARTICULAR TO SAY AND IT SAYS IT IN A GENTLER, SUBLTER WAY THAN MOST SOCIAL SATIRES MIGHT.”
- Cate Marquis, We Are Movie Geeks
“LIKED EVERYTHING ABOUT THIS MOVIE FROM ITS CRAFTY ACTORS TO ITS CRAZY PLOT. MARIPIER MORIN AND ALEXANDRE LANDRY ARE STARS OF TOMORROW.”
