Movie Info

A man considers the fine line between friendship and family as he crosses France by foot in this comedy. Felix (Sami Bouajila) is a cheerful thirty-something from Normandy who is part-Arab by birth and 100 percent French by inclination; Felix is also gay and HIV-positive, though the ups and downs of the characters on his favorite soap opera trouble him more than his health, which he regards with a good-natured stoicism. Felix has never really known his father, who left his mother before Felix

It would all be too obviously feel-good if Ducastel and Martineau weren't also tuned in to the liberating drift of the open highway and a sharp native humor that adds needed flesh and blood to their walking metaphors.

Narratively, what we have here is a basic road movie, a genre that too often doubles as an excuse to hide a flawed script -- merely an episodic series of loose vignettes.

We realize early on that nothing much is going to happen ... and it's hard to stay fully engaged with a film that, frontal nudity notwithstanding, plays it so safe.

It has a personable character in Felix.

Although the movie never so much as flirts with melodrama, there is still a bittersweet undercurrent throughout Adventures of Felix.

Bouajila's winning performance, and the film's timely tolerance, make Felix a movie road trip you'll want to take.

delightful new road comedy by the equally delightful directors/lovers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau.

I can't even begin to imagine what a crude American director would choose to do with it, and don't want to.

The greatest accomplishment of writer-directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau is that they can sustain subtle expressions of love, both physical and emotional... while also allowing these same characters to deal with the shortcomings of humanity.

There is a sort of sun-washed gay complacency to Adventures of Felix, a streak of greeting card glibness.

I like to see gay characters in films, but filmmakers can't specifically rely on their gayness to make them interesting.

A film whose surface charm never gets in the way of its profound seriousness about living life to the fullest.

...it does provide a charismatic telling of a young man's journey to find himself...

"The Adventures of Felix" and its star have charm to spare.

The picture is about as memorable as a nondescript television soap opera, which is something that the lead character dotes upon.
