Trivia

Director Esben Storm once said that this is "... a film which tells people how good it is to be alive...It's a story about coming to terms with one's past and then with the present - accepting the here and now, and moving into the future with a positive attitude towards life...It is a rejection of the negativity of my generation...It has an entertaining reality, and audiences will enjoy it. It has a dog, it has cars. It has violence, love, sex, humor and music. It has two very interesting people, and 3200 kilometers of highway". See more »

I saw this movie on TV years ago and fell in love with the thought provoking story and realism of the characterisation and the story was fantastic. Not the most riveting film, yet I made a connection with this film which has never truly left my mind since i saw it. Reminded me of Walkabout. I'm not sure why it left such a marked impression on me but i just had to find this movie again! (Was made more difficult since i'd forgotten the title! THANKYOU IMDb!) I recommend this movie to any Australian-at-heart who likes the bush, travel, adventure, and a bit of bizarreness in their life ^_^.
