Friday, September 30 - Thursday, October 6, 2011

At the age of 60, Serge Pilardosse (Gerard Depardieu) is retiring from his job at a slaughterhouse. But when he tries to claim his benefits, he discovers that several of his former employers “forgot” to declare his earnings. The only way he can get the full amount he’s owed is to revisit his old workplaces and gather the missing affidavits. Encouraged by his wife Catherine (Yolande Moreau, Seraphine), he mounts his vintage 1970s motorcycle-the Mammuth that gave him his nickname-and sets off, flummoxed but determined, on a strange journey through central France that will bring him into touch with old friends, family and even his lost first love (Isabelle Adjani).
