This is a beautiful, unpretentious film. Sami Bouajila is gorgeous as is his portrayal of Felix and Patachou as Mathilde was perfectly cast and brilliantly played. If you're studying French, or just a casual student of language and come across the term "Joie de vivre", then look no further than this film for its definition because they fit each other to a T.
I've often lamented the sad state of American mainstream film but if you care to see a film done right and without a hundred million dollar budget, here it is. What the French do right seems so effortless, too; a simple story, exception players, film it in France. Olivier Ducastel has my vote for Director of the Century, just from this one film.
This was a tolerable movie. Not impressive by any means. You can find racism everywhere, appreciate the love that you already have
Perhaps only French could make a potentially gloomy background (Felix, the main character, is a gay, HIV+, Arabian in France who has just being laid-off; with a paternity question) into something so positive, optimistic & laid-back.
Life is a journey.. Family is those who cares about you.. Patachou and Sami is just great in this. Enjoyable.
It's an interesting concept, and although the story is good, it does sometimes get a bit weird. But overall, it is an okay movie.
una road movie bien particular Felix se pone en búsqueda de su padre que nunca ha visto pero en el camino descubre a una verdadera familia todos ellos desconocidos
road movie francesa si bien no es excelente si nos presenta un concepto de familia, genial muy parecido al mio jejeje...
French gay film that explores the possibility of alternative family structures, and asks why we nonsensically give priority to biological ties. Conceptually, I liked it. But narratively it was just a boring movie.
Not the cat, a handsome young French man who goes on a solo road trip to meet his father and along the way meets some interesting characters. There is brief full frontal when he cheats on his boyfriend. I enjoyed this film.
7.5/10. What a wonderful and warm film, beautifully acted with outstanding character development. Touching and sensitively directed. Great story that is always interesting. Excellent score.
