In French with English subtitles
When an aging and disenchanted movie star’s security guard and only companion has to go away, George (Gérard Depardieu) has a new guard assigned to him. His replacement, Aïssa (Déborah Lukumuena) is his literal opposite: young and female. Between the disillusioned actor and the young security guard, a unique bond is formed. Both hilarious and heartbreaking, Robust is an intimate portrait of an unlikely friendship.
