Microbe and Gasoil is a story of two kids against authority, against the hierarchy. Daniel (Angel Dargent), nicknamed Microbe, is a shy child of fourteen and a half, often immersed himself in his drawings.  Frequently tormented by bullies of the playground, he feels separated from his family while his mother (Audrey Tautou) is also going through a crisis.

Bumped during the year in the class of Daniel and immediately a  friendship develops between them. As the summer holidays approach, the two friends have no desire to spend with their families. So they will embark on the greatest adventure of their lives. Here is a light-hearted comedy/road trip with two teenagers who are rebels and  goes into an adventures of a life time. I used to hike a lot when I was a teenagers with some friends and we used to sleep at the farm in the grange with the farmer permission and we used to go from village to village okay we did not make a car but we had fun doing it most of the summer. The characters are off beat with some cool dialogues to go with it. Some of you might think back in the day were you were a teenager watching this film. It is writing by the director Gondry is it the experience of his childhood maybe it is or not but who cares just enjoy this film for what it is .
