The Lorry (French: Le camion) or The Truck is a 1977 French drama film directed by Marguerite Duras.


Le camion was entered into the 1977 Cannes Film Festival.[1]

After the Cannes debut, the crowd reacted "at first with highly vocal disbelief and the with outbursts of anger, and walk-outs" and even those "charmed by her harmonious, lulling use of the film medium ... have, buried under a few layers, the rebellious instincts that others [gave] loud voice to."[2]

Following the showing, Duras stood atop a flight of stairs while a crowd yelled insults at her.[2]

In an interview with Marguerite Duras, Jean-Luc Godard praised the film for the way that it "lets the text come through but also carries it."[3]
