A warm, human tale that has had a smaller audience than it deserves.
4 January 2001 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

I saw this on television in France in 1992 and had no way at the time of finding out anything about it. I really enjoyed it: found it refreshing and different (a particularly pleasant change from the dubbed big-budget American fare almost exclusively featured on French television). The name really stuck in my mind and it is only now that I've been able to go back to it. Unfortunately, I remember little about the intricacies of plot (I have still only seen it once) but I saw it as a fairly fast-paced, warm, human tale that holds its own in the 'easy-to-slip-into-clichés' world of road movies. It is a shame it has not been seen by more people.
