The Brighter Way

Directed by Eric Le Roch

Written by Eric Le Roch

Produced by Philippe Braunstein

Fiction / Comédie / 96 min.


Jean vents his spleen from dawn to dusk on every living creature, human or animal. His horrible behaviour finally gets him fired. He decides to go visit his uncle in a retirement home in La Baule, a beach resort. He runs into Antoine, a gentle generous guy who is also heading back to La Baule, where he lives. At first, Jean finds Antoine’s mysticism and goodness infuriating, but he is also attracted by his simple honesty and eventually offers him a ride in his car.
