A burlesque, fast-moving “mockumentary” about Casablanca Driver, the world’s worst boxer in 1969, when the film is set. A chain of unfortunate circumstances leads to the fighter at the bottom of the world rankings having to take on the champion, Jimmy La Renta. The outcome would seem clear… But how much of the story is real? “Casablance Driver” is Maurice Barthélemy’s feature film debut.
Maurice Barthélemy, Isabelle Nanty, Chantal Lauby
