Extraordinary father and son road movie
25 April 1999 | by (Rio de Janeiro, Brazil) – See all my reviews

Superb acting by the brilliantly casted Jean Yanne and Guillaume Canet as , respectively, father and son, coupled with quintessential French middle class humor and non pretentious modern locales and situations make this film both (1)a father and son, and (2) a road movie to see. Brilliant directing by first time helmer Remy Waterhouse.
