David Gordon Green wanted to shoot, no matter what, the rarified landscape of a forest in Texas devastated by a fire. The problem? He needed a storyline. He finally found it in an Icelandic film that fit like a glove. In the middle of the summer of ‘88, Alvin and Lance have to undertake a boring job: repaint the lines on a highway in the middle of a highway in this desolate forest. Their relationship will give rise to both humor and melancholy, in a beautiful, funny road movie on foot, with phantasmagorical touches.
