Shot in Belgium last spring, special transport tells the story of the peculiar meeting of Foster (Chistian Keyboard) and Taupin (Gérard Depardieu).

The new film by Bertrand Blier seems to want to lead, between comic situations and retorts, a reflection on the place of free will. “I know, me, my scenario. There’s the same end for all the world”, dramatizes in the trailer the character from Keyboard, sitting on a bench. And even on the cinema industry in which the scenarios are kings, and the characters are subjected to the will of the authors. “You can’t give me pages to go in the story?” asks the character of Farida Rahouadj. The actress signs with this role, her fourth collaboration with the French filmmaker, after The Sound of Ice cubes , How much you love me and Chops . It is also found in the casting of other well-known names, such as those of Alex Lutz, Alexandra Lamy, Sylvie Testud.
