This French comedy-drama about a dysfunctional family won France's Jean Vigo award. In the tightly-knit Ducret family, farmer Luc (Frederic Pierrot) is married to Jeanne (Muriel Mayette), who regrets they abandoned their deformed firstborn to an institution -- an event the couple has kept secret from their other three children. Although antisocial Julien (Vincent Deneriaz), their retarded 19-year-old son, is interested in girls, he spends his time talking to a cow which gave birth to a two-headed calf. The police would like to see Julien institutionalized. After Julien finally learns about Jules, he revs up his moped and embarks on a "rescue" mission to bring Jules home. Shown in the Certain Regard section at the 1998 Cannes Film Festival.
