Movie Info

Olivier Ducastel directs this charming comedy about going on a rather long walk. Felix (Sami Bouajila) is a laid-back guy living in the bleak northern coastal town of Dieppe. He lives happily with his lover Daniel (Pierre-Loup Rajot), a soap opera enthusiast and HIV victim. After losing his job, Felix decides to find the father he never knew in Marseilles. Agreeing to meet Daniel in the southern port city in a week's time, Felix throws on his backpack and starts hiking.

  • 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.
