Description: Roger Closset is the photographer for a tabloid newspaper in a small, uneventful Belgian factory town. Between monitoring the police band for accidents and crimes, and tricking hapless subjects into posing for incriminating photos, Roger dreams of making a mark on the world far beyond where his means or his run-down motorbike can take him. His big chance comes when a local merchant's group sponsors a competition for new world records; the prize: a gleaming new car, sure to transform his life into a blissful new utopia. With no notable talent of his own -save an utter lack of scruples- Roger bullies his 15 year-old son Michel into training for the title of door opening/closing champion of the world. While poor Michel's real passions are dressing as Elvis and poring through old movies for editing bloopers, he dutifully submits to his father's Olympian efforts to launch him to international acclaim.
