The Ride (Czech: Jízda) is a 1994 Czech drama film directed by Jan Svěrák.

Synopsis

Deux copains décident de profiter des vacances, de l'été pour aller faire une virée en voiture. Avec leur 8000 couronnes, ils dénichent une Mazda 626 coupé 1600 qu'ils transforment en cabriolet décoré de plaques françaises pour que la police leur fiche la paix. Et les voilà partis au hasard: vers l'est, vers l'ouest: peu importe la campagne est très jolie des deux côtés et comme le dit la chanson «Nous trouverons un endroit où on fume à l'aise, où le soleil ne chauffe pas trop les bouteilles, où le vent disperse autour de nous des crottes d'oiseaux, où on peut goûter ce qu'on préfère et regarder tranquillement si quelqu'un arrive, quelqu'un qui sait que nous sommes assis là et qui dira "Salut les gars"»

John L. Sullivan (Joel McCrea) is a popular young Hollywood director of profitable but shallow comedies (e.g. Ants in Your Plants of 1939). Sullivan is dissatisfied despite his success and tells his studio boss, Mr. Lebrand (Robert Warwick) that he wants his next project to be a serious exploration of the plight of the downtrodden. He asks to make his next film an adaptation of O Brother, Where Art Thou?, a socially-conscious novel. Lebrand wants him to direct another lucrative comedy instead, but the idealistic Sullivan refuses to give in. He wants to "know trouble" first-hand, and plans to travel as a tramp so he can return and make a film that truly depicts the sorrows of humanity. His butler (Robert Greig) and valet (Eric Blore) openly question the wisdom of his plan.
