delightful new road comedy by the equally delightful directors/lovers Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau.
October 1, 2002
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.

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

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.
December 6, 2001
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.
September 21, 2001
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.
August 21, 2001
I like to see gay characters in films, but filmmakers can't specifically rely on their gayness to make them interesting.
August 10, 2001
A delightful film.
August 10, 2001
An odyssey of self-discovery of much charm, humor and admirable subtlety.
August 9, 2001
A film whose surface charm never gets in the way of its profound seriousness about living life to the fullest.
August 6, 2001
...it does provide a charismatic telling of a young man's journey to find himself...
August 5, 2001
"The Adventures of Felix" and its star have charm to spare.
August 4, 2001
The picture is about as memorable as a nondescript television soap opera, which is something that the lead character dotes upon.
August 3, 2001
A thoroughly engaging road movie that's as affable and charming as its title character.
