The Lorry (French: Le Camion) is a 1977 French drama film directed by Marguerite Duras. It was entered into the 1977 Cannes Film Festival.[1]

A female writer reads to a comedian the script of her next film. It is about a hitchhiking woman who climbs in a truck. During the whole trip, she keeps talking while the driver listens to her, saying nothing. The film does not show the actor and the actress, just numerous scenes of a big truck going through the countryside.
