Overview

A bored and dispirited man heads out for a new adventure in this French comedy-drama from filmmakers Benoit Delépine and Gustave de Kervern. Serge (Gerard Depardieu), nicknamed "Mammuth" by his friends for the old motorcycle he's owned for years, began working at a slaughterhouse when he was sixteen years old; a model worker, Serge never had a sick day or was laid off, and shortly after turning sixty he's given a retirement party by his fellow employees. After spending nearly his entire adult life at the same job, Serge isn't sure what to do with his free time, but he soon discovers a snag in his retirement plans -- several former employees at the slaughterhouse neglected to fill out the proper paperwork, and until they sign the appropriate forms he won't receive his pension. Hoping to make the best of a bad situation and give Serge something to do at the same time, his wife Catherine (Yolande Moreau) suggests he pull his old motorcycle out of the garage and take a road trip to round up the needed signatures. Serge takes her advice, but as he catches up with his old friends, he discovers how little they think of him, and he's haunted by the spirit of Yasmine (Isabelle Adjani), a beautiful girl he used to love. Serge later finds a traveling companion in Solange (Miss Ming), his free-spirited niece; Solange is an artist who along with her friends encourages Serge to open himself up to his creative side that he's ignored most of his life. Mammuth was an official selection at the 2010 Berlin International Film Festival.
