A mosaic of asphalt adventures, landscape photography, and some of the craziest shit you’ve ever seen, Dmitrii Kalashnikov’s THE ROAD MOVIE is a stunning compilation of video footage shot exclusively via the deluge of dashboard cameras that populate Russian roads. The epitome of a you-have- to-see- it-to- believe-it documentary, THE ROAD MOVIE captures a wide range of spectacles through the windshield—including a comet crashing down to Earth, an epic forest fire, and no shortage of angry motorists taking road rage to wholly new and unexpected levels—all accompanied by bemused commentary from unseen and often stoic drivers and passengers.
Dominique Abel - Dom
Dominique Abel plays Dom, a selfish and resourceful homeless man who has a very poor sense of propriety, but who is always up for trying things. The evolution of his character with respect to previous films: more mischievous, seductive, and autonomous.
Fiona Gordon - Fiona
Fiona Gordon is well-known for her unique physical language. In this film, she brings out her Olive Oyl-side. The evolution of her character with respect to previous films: more fragility, vulnerability, and emotion.
Emmanuelle Riva - Martha
We are happy to be able to share a period of creativity with this incredible actress, and to be part of her astonishing and uncompromising career. When we imagined the character’s playful side, a dimension she has rarely explored in her work, we offered her the role. But she has brought so much more. She was immediately pleased by Martha’s tragicomic side. Our first meetings convinced us that she embodied the character’s strength, audacity, and poetic qualities with simplicity, liveliness and – as with every role she accepts – by wholeheartedly committing herself to it. This will be her first return to the screen since Michael Haneke’s AMOUR.
Pierre Richard - Norman
Pierre Richard plays Norman. We needed someone who could embody this elderly, independent and charismatic artist; a lover who resurfaces three times throughout the story. Pierre Richard has a strong personality, combining charm, humour, and physical presence.
