What is friendly?
22 April 2005 | by (Italy) – See all my reviews

My father always said to me : " Friendly doesn't exist " . Watching this movie you can get an idea of what friendly is , an union , a short moment thinking to make great things with others , feeling an adventure as when we were kids or students . All actors made a good job by interpreting the different parts of individual masks and human behaviors . Also it can be voted as road movie , a classic review of what Salvatores figured in a transposition of Kerouac's book and state of mind , although Marrakech Express is in a primitive state of "on the road" mind , compared to the beat generation bible . The ending scene is an answer to my initial sentence , personally , i add , it does exist but it is not as you can always figure out .
