Overview

A tragic loss sends a man on an aimless road trip away from responsibility in this drama from writer and director Louis Belanger. Gilles (Francois Papineau) is a college professor from Montreal whose life falls apart when his five-year-old son dies after a bout with meningitis. Unable to deal with his family or the decisions that lay in the wake of his boy's death, Gilles hops in his car and heads out to the country, where he meets up with his old friend Bob (Alexis Martin), who he hasn't seen in years. While Gilles became an academic, Bob supports himself as a small-time crook, and after a few drinks too many Gilles proposes they go into business knocking over banks. It turns out neither Gilles or Bob are cut out for serious larceny, and they end up drifting from one small town to another, with Gilles sinking deeper into booze and self-doubt, especially as he crosses paths with members of his family who have troubles of their own. As Gilles's bender continues, Bob is forced to become the responsible member of the duo. Route 132 was an official selection at the 2010 Toronto International Film Festival.
