    • Synopsis
    • Twenty-year-old Mike, Fred and J-C grew up in the Alsatian village of Kembs near the Swiss and German borders. There isn't much to do there... but they don't care.
      Together, they are a gang lacking neither imagination nor charm. In surrounding indifference, they storm ahead, always with a smile on their lips. They have fun playing soccer with the local amateur team, organizing stupid schemes while hidden away in a garage and riding around on motorbikes.
      For years Mike's worshipped cars, above all fancy cars. He has the nasty habit of "borrowing" them, then quite innocently returning them back to where they belong. It's his way of getting around.
      Based on a news item, "Carjacking" is the tragicomic story of this antihero whose transition from adolescence into adulthood is a miserable failure. He is as pathetic as he is moving; he makes us feel sorry for him as much as he makes us laugh.
