Storyline

Simon, 35, has returned to live temporarily with his father. They make life unbearable for each other. To add spice to this situation, Uncle Maurice and Aunt Mala, Ernest's brother and sister, meddle in everything and, notably, try to find a "nice little Jewish girl" for Simon to marry. When Ernest passes away, Simon fulfils his father's last request: bury him in the village where he was born, in the depths of Ukraine. And so Simon finds himself caught up in an event-packed road movie in the company of his paranoid old uncle, his aunt who nags him endlessly about his "Goy dancer", his six-years-old son, his father's body and his ghost, and also a rabbit. Not to mention his ex who hassles him by phone. The journey will be nothing like a cruise down the Nile! Written by Anonymous

nice trip
28 May 2012 | by (Romania) – See all my reviews

Jewish humor. impact of civilizations. a funeral. and importance of roots. result - a nice movie without any ambition. nostalgic, full of old ingredients, a tale about sense, legacy, origin and family links, picture of past in the eye of a young man for who father was only a disgracing shadow of childhood, father himself, map of a travel as key of self sense, pregnant with many fruits of sentimental refuges, it is only a kind of delight who makes few emotions and a lot of smiles. a piece with good intentions. but not more. because to present roots of this problem is not very easy. and joke is not a good solution. but it is a decent film. and it is important. the details - bones of silence.
