The Little Gangster
(Jacques Doillon, 1990). A poignant quasi-road movie that takes place in large part in a car going between Sete and Montpellier in the south of France, this is basically a three-character story involving a confused boy in search of a sister he had thought was dead, the sister, and a good-natured cop who tries to help them. Doillon is one of the rare directors whose adolescent characters are never stereotyped.
