We gave it a B+

Not a cowboy flick, but a quixotic road movie set in western France. Thing is, its sweetly mismatched duo — a loverboy traveling salesman from Spain (Lopez) and a lovelorn drifter from Russia (Bourdo) — never get anywhere. But, as the characters make screwball loops around Brittany, Western plays like a lighthearted, minimally mobile Waiting for Godot. Getting nowhere is all the fun. B+
