A touching road-movie towards love, dreams and the Pyrrenees
A boy, a youth and a seemingly crazy old man are on their way to the Pyrrenees. What are they really searching for? Life & Fulfillment, I guess. But Beineix pulls it off without getting pompous. This movie is mixed, both gentle and harsh at the same time. It's a lot more quiet than Beineix's "Betty Blue", without the same desperation - it's more about pent-up feelings and longing.
All the main characters are played well, especially Sall is incredibly good as the kid. That ending in the sunrise at the Pyrrenees is moving. No guarantee that Betty Blue-fans will like this - but it's really worth checking out!
