Such a real and lovely film!
13 September 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I don't understand 1) why they characterize the son as a loser, or 2) why some reviewers comment on the father being too old. The father is a good 15-20 yrs older than the mum. The son is normally f*d up. But it's a normal f*d up family of 3. The son is clearly not a complete loser because he takes his folks on the trip after his dad crashes his own car. After huge disappointment with his girlfriend, the son has a temper tantrum. Silly, yes, but fits the dynamic of the family. Once they get to Germany, the son is just as much a part of the family as all of them. It's a story of a very touching journey by the Dad, and the mum and son are big participants. Get past it all. It's one of the most unusual road trip films I've seen. And quite lovely.
