"Le camion is . . . uncompromising. [It] lets the text come through but also carries it." - Jean-Luc Godard

"For Duras, this situation [of Le camion] represents our modern condition: en route to who knows where, crossing desolate lands, with no other destination, perhaps, than the end of the world [...]. This text from 1977 is entirely relevant almost half a century later." - Jean-Luc Nancy
