A wonder picture about man's friendship
25 March 2002 | by (Portofino, Italy) – See all my reviews

A group of (four) old friends have to help one of them which, run away in marrakech many years before, sent them a mysterious message. Since they were friends, four man's stories are changed and they are forced to start to Africa. But while journey they discover that friendship maybe is still alive and it is better than money, education, career. The soccer match that friends play against desert nomads is unforgettable. A surprise with sweet sadness for the final.
