Details

Larger than life in all conceivable ways, Gérard Depardieu brings generous helpings of his own personality to any role he plays. Constance Meyer's highly enjoyable Cannes Critics' Week opener Robust not only takes this on board, but runs with it, casting Depardieu as Georges, an ageing French actor with a tendency to crash motorbikes and to embark on drunken misadventures. ‘France without meat isn't France,’ he grumbles at one point. The film's secret weapon, however, is Déborah Lukumuena, supremely assured as Aïssa, the temporary security guard with whom Georges forges a grudging friendship.

An act of inter-generational generosity and mutual elevation between one of France’s most accomplished film stars and one of its blazing newest.
