Playful road movie with some dramatic overtones. It's all based on Deneuve's performance that is quite sympathetic. Deneuve plays Bettie who runs a restaurant in a small village, despite her efforts and hard work the restaurant is in financial difficulties and her love life is destroyed, so one day she gets in her car and drives away. A lot of events will eventually follow and she will be reunited with her grandson, Charly. An effective road movie drama with good acting all around and some good looking barbecue meat.
