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.

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