France Tour / Tour de France (15)

TOUR DE FRANCEFrench-Algerian director Rachid Djaïdani hopes to combat prejudice with laughs by pitting irritable Gérard Depardieu against Arab hip-hopper Sadek. With a baseball cap forever pinned down over his forehead, the 20-year-old Far’Hook (Sadek) is not really as tough as his lyrics and streetwise look make him out to be. He’s actually a smart and sensitive young artist. When he’s run out of Paris by a rival rapper Far’Hook takes to the road with his producer’s father, Serge (Depardieu), a cantankerous Sunday painter who’s decided to follow in the footsteps of 18th century landscape artist Claude-Joseph Vernet. The scene is set for an odd couple road movie.
