Twin brothers Quentin and Antoine escape from their father’s bakery to attend the funeral of the mother they never knew. As they hitchhike towards Spain, old grudges between the two teenagers resurface. Antoine resents the friendships that his brother makes on the road, while sensitive Quentin is frustrated by his brother’s jealous and possessive behaviour. Increasingly hostile, Antoine cruelly ditches Quentin but he soon realises that he can’t make it to Spain without his brother by his side.
A tense yet haunting account of brotherly love and independence, Give Me Your Hand is Pascal-Alex Vincent’s first feature film, after numerous acclaimed shorts - his short Baby Shark won the Palme d’Or Short Film at the Cannes Film Festival and plays . Inspired by various cult road movies from the 70s, Give Me Your Hand is a wistful debut from one of France’s most promising young directors.
