Storyline

For the first time in 18 years, Luigi Bertone (50), a retired miner, is returning to Sicily for his goddaughter's wedding. He bought himself a brand-new car to show off. But at the first lay-by, his car breaks down and he gets involved in a hold-up by Anita, a 17-year-old refugee from an orphanage. They have to run from the law now. Luigi, a conservative, childless, middle-aged man, is now stuck with a rebel who never had any real parents. Overcoming obstacles together, they grow to like each other. Written by Hannelore Goossens

Entertaining Road Movie.
25 May 1999 | by (Pretoria, South Africa) – See all my reviews

A fairly un-demanding road movie about a Sicilian migrant worker in Belgium, driving home, for the first time in many years, in his brand new car. Soon after leaving he is hi-jacked by a semi-delinquent young woman.

A slightly implausible, light hearted, family entertainment, type of film that cannot be compared to the thematically similar, but much more serious, artistic film by Theo Angelopolous, the Beekeeper. Still it is a well made film that offers interesting, though perhaps superficial, insights into the world of these, in some way, marginalised people.
