Robust / Robuste (15)

Dir Constance Meyer

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.
