New Times (L.A.)
A film whose surface charm never gets in the way of its profound seriousness about living life to the fullest -- especially when one knows it isn't going to be a terribly long one.

Los Angeles Times
An odyssey of self-discovery of much charm, humor and admirable subtlety.

Washington Post
This French film has a breezy, documentary air that belies the important issues is raises.

Miami Herald
Although the movie never so much as flirts with melodrama, there is still a bittersweet undercurrent.

Philadelphia Inquirer
Poignant, funny and clear-eyed about some tough topics: homophobia, racism, AIDS.

L.A. Weekly
It would all be too obviously feel-good if Ducastel and Martineau weren't also tuned in to the liberating drift of the open highway and a sharp native humor that adds needed flesh and blood to their walking metaphors.

Austin Chronicle
Yes, this is the stuff of fiction, where individuals can drift in and out of another's life and make extraordinary, unbelievable things happen.

New York Daily News
Perhaps simply discovering a film so dedicated to a different perspective is adventure enough.

New York Post
Sweet, funny, well-acted and nicely shot on locations in the south of France -- but on the dull side overall.

Makes its points gently; the picture presents its socially conscious messages as if they were written in the sand, on the beaches where Felix would probably prefer to frolic.
