Backpack in tow, Felix sets out walking, hitching and borrowing cars to get to the south of France. Springtime is budding, nature is at its best, and some unique characters await Felix along the dirtroads and byways of the French countryside. Written by

This light hearted travelogue managed to illuminate racism, HIV, aging,
death, passion, commitment and fear with a gentle seductive light. It has
less ideals than American films like it. Therefore, it seemed much more
real, mostly. One big issue, homophobia, is treated most strangely as an
anachronism. Felix makes out with his various men in public with fearless
abandon, while he seems intensely aware of his Arab-ness. I can allow for
the common American notion that Europeans are easier about public displays,
but this aspect of the film did seem less real and more idealized. The
French countryside is also portrayed in a very real way. Highways and power
plants everywhere. Yet, the natural lighting and choice of shots conveyed
the persisting charm of France. I was reminded of Eric Rohmer films, like
"Autumn Tale". Sami Bouajila, as Felix, has camera chemistry and acts well.
The supporting cast is evenly talented. I was thrilled to see Patachou, whom
we haven't seen often enough here in the States. I think this film will be
remembered as a very good movie with universal appeal, not a gay snapshot,
like many of its American cousins.
