Storyline

It's summer, and recent college graduate Nadir has accepted to drive his father's old taxi from their home in the Netherlands to his family's home country of Morocco to deliver it to a friend. Without notice his two friends Abdel and Zakaria join him on the trip. Nadir doesn't want to waste time, but his friends insist on picking up a French hitchhiker and letting her show them around Barcelona. We eventually learn that there is more to the trip for Nadir than just delivering a car, and it becomes a conflict that threatens the three men's friendship. Written by Peter Brandt Nielsen

great original movie , fun to watch
30 June 2011 | by (Netherlands) – See all my reviews

i had a great time see this one here. i could imagine myself doing the same thing on a trip. the story and plot is great and had a good end . the only thing i could criticize is that the french girl spoke English with a very strong dutch accent.

i mean when you meet a french person that speaks English , we all know how that sounds , very funny English with a strong french accent and not with an obvious dutch accent. but besides of that i enjoyed the movie a lot.

not the best movie of the year , but for sure a lot of fun to watch and no boring moments . it gives you a look in the real life of such a road trip what you can expect and what people you could meet. good and bad .

well done !
