"I'd like to be dead so people would leave me the hell alone!" The ageing and somewhat egocentric film star George (Gérard Depardieu) is given a new security guard at his side - Aïssa (Déborah Lukumuena), a semi-professional wrestler. A very special friendship develops between the young pragmatic woman and the disillusioned actor. ROBUST – these are the two characters. The figure of the ageing actor raises the question of how much of the real Depardieu is in this role. The debut film premiered at the "Semaine de la Critique" in Cannes 2021.
