Synopsis by Gönül Dönmez-Colin
Mille Bornes is a road movie about the friends of the deceased Romain who want to respect his last wishes, which were delivered in the form of a videocassette. Their ordeals involve stealing Romain's corpse from the hospital. They are well aware of the implications of this criminal act, but they feel it is necessary to ease their conscience. Romain's father agrees to go along, considering it a form of pilgrimage. Mille Bornes is not a comedy; it does not retort to pathos or clichés but tries to deliver the story with emotion. Two lesser known actors, Emma De Caunes and Bruno Solo, carry their roles with conviction, while Roberto Herlitzka shines as the father of the deceased Romain.
