Press review

“Irresistible, quirky, excessive, appealing!” (LE CANARD ENCHAINE, David Fontaine) “A human adventure you do only once in a life”, “Forty year old brats’ libertarian liberty” (L’HUMANITE, Dominique Widemann) “An almost label of excellence about absurdity, picturesque, hilarity, enormity, surrealism and we’re going to stop because we don’t want to give the impression of exaggeration.” (LE MONDE, Jacques Mandelbaum) “It is a kind of a rainy and Belgian response to the Judd Apatow’s regressive comedies.” (TELERAMA, Jérémie Couston) “Le Grand’Tour, it’s Gerry, the great film about the Gus Vant Sant’s contemporary wandering, in the land of beer, brasses and surrealism.” (TSUGI, Alexis Bernier) “A very lovely declaration of friendship.” (STUDIO CINE LIVE, Christophe Chadefaud) “This Grand’Tour is highly worth seeing” (JDD, Jean-Pierre Lacômme) “Le Grand’Tour, Festival de came” “This concentrate of Belgium attitude is much more fresh to watch than the last US production” (ROCK&FOLK, Christophe Lemaire) “A colorful Belgian comedy tainted of American style ‘romance’ “. (CRITIKAT, Sébastien Chapuis)
