Michel Vaillant depicts events around the 24 hours of Le Mans race, based largely on a comic about the Michel Vaillant character.

A popular French comic strip of the 1950s becomes a candy-colored feature film in this race-car adventure.

The Leaders and the Vaillants are rival families of Formula One car drivers, the former group devious and cutthroat, the latter benevolent and amiable.

But when the hallowed Le Mans 24-hour race is at hand, both clans find that they'll resort to anything to win.

With many of its scenes filmed at the real Le Mans race in the summer of 2002, Michel Vaillant was co-produced by international crossover success Luc Besson
