The Carriers are Waiting

Dir. Benoît Mariage

Belgium-France-Sweden 1999 | Black & white | 90 mins | Cert 15

Cast: Benoît Poelvoorde, Morgane Simon

Dreaming of a better life for himself and his family, Roger resolves to make history by breaking a world record – any record – and settles upon surpassing the previous achievement for door opening: 40,000 times in 24 hours. Wildly original and very funny, the film wryly satirises our achievement-obsessed society and contains a most memorable comic creation in the maniacally driven Roger.
