'Grand Froid' tells the initiatory adventures of the two last employees working for the company Ganglion & Fils - specialized in the organisation of funerals. Georges (Jean-Pierre Bacri) is an old gravedigger who will retire soon. He works with Eddy, a beginner in the profession. The story starts when they get lost with the hearse they drive and lose the procession they should have followed to the graveyard.

This movie has been nominated to the Aubagne Film Festival (2017)
