Looking for another location?
In this wild and hilarious new comedy from writer/director Édouard Deluc (Gauguin, AF FFF18), a group of unsuspecting tourists sign up for a pleasant horseback tour of the Pyrénées but instead find themselves undertaking a life-threatening adventure.
Unemployed, broke, middle-aged, and desperate, Ludo (Pio Marmaï, Rise, AF FFF23) and Richard are two of life’s loveable losers and the completely inexperienced impostor guides behind the ill-fated horseback tour. Comprising close encounters with wild animals to dangerously-inept hunting lessons, food poisoning, and a steady decline in leadership competence from the bewildered tour guides, the tourists' journey inevitably spirals downhill.
A lively mashup of comedy, adventure film, western, and disaster movie, Wilderness Therapy doesn't shy away from touching on contemporary social and economic issues. And it does so with a dynamic and eccentric sense of humour. Set against the stunning natural beauty of the Pyrénées, this film is brimming with humanity, heart, and many, many laughs.
