Explore this curious country called France! That’s the incredible journey of Polobi and Mundiya, two intrepid travellers from Papua New Guinea. Invited by their friend photographer Marc Dozier, the two travelers have crossed the Hexagon for several months to engage – as an amateur – a sociological study of this strange world. From the national assembly to backstage of the Moulin Rouge, from the depths of Paris metro to the top of the Eiffel Tower… they wanted to see everything, taste everything, experience everything! Reckless, they even tried some of the most exotic customs: drinking wine, eating oysters, drive a car and, when possible, kiss girls on the mouth! In the manner of Montesquieu’s Persian Letters, they pose a fresh look, full of humor and philosophy about western world, its rules, its excesses and contradictions. A delicious reverse exploration to discover the astonishing tribe of the French.
