Goofs

The scene where Pierre makes a phone call amidst the cows outside the hostel is clearly a rather poorly concealed day-for-night scene. Pierre blinks when he steps outside, blinded by the sun (and he keeps doing it throughout the scene) and the cows are standing up and moving around, which they wouldn't if it were truly night (they'd be lying down).

Travelling Hard
23 October 2005 | by See all my reviews

I'm at a loss to know why IMDb offers so little information on a film that's been on release a couple of weeks and is currently playing in 17 salles in Paris alone. Be that as it may this is our old friend the eccentric Will in yet another guise. Audrey Hepburn completists will have encountered it in Mario Zampi's Laughter In Paradise where her cigarette girl was incidental to the legatees charged with performing tasks that were out of character and foreign to their nature in order to inherit their share of a legacy. This time around three siblings discover they must make a pilgrimage to a noted shrine before they can divvy up the loot and, oh, yes, they have to do it the hard way - on foot. Naturally with such a story it's all about the journey not the goal, a sort of Heart Of Lightness if you will. It's pleasant enough though perhaps we're entitled to expect more from Colline Serrau, who made her name with Three Men And A Cradle and followed up with Romuald Et Juliet. It's nice to see Muriel Robin back in action and Jean-Pierre Darroussin is always worth the price of admission. Take a look, why not.
