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).

Absolutely feel-good...
19 September 2007 | by (Cape Verde) – See all my reviews

When I heard a new Coline Serreau movie was coming out shortly, I knew already I wouldn't miss it... and it ended up being one of my favorite genres: a road movie! Nine totally different persons are put together on this Santiago de Compostela pilgrimage where almost none of them give a sh*t for the deep religious background - excepted the young French boy with Arab roots who thinks they are going to Mecca - and after the eight weeks walk each of them comes out enriched not only with money, but also with a larger or somehow different family. The situation comic is so sweet, all of the pilgrims trying to find mobile phone coverage somewhere in the deepest French pampa, the things each of them dream about, this film brought me to laugh a lot and in some other moments also close to tears. The screenplay is full of wit and the landscape... oooh the landscape... and of course no decent French film could be a real French film without an abundant cooking and dining scene! I hope you also enjoy this film with all senses as much as I did!
