Title from resource description page (viewed Nov. 7, 2012)
Summary: This film tells the hilarious story of four old friends who, driving back from a failed skiing trip, encounter a strange and enormous rock. The men's frivolous attempt to dislodge the rock gradually disintegrates into a tale of betrayal, defeat and renewed hope. The heroes of the film are doctors, engineers and businessmen in the throes of mid-life crises. Their middle-class problems and the absurd phallic rock venture gives rise to great humor
