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

Road movie with more depth than you think.
3 December 2011 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

Shot in 5 weeks apparently and with a great cast (Stéphane Caillard's native tongue is French, maybe people should stop measuring any French accent against Pepe Le Pew).

The three friends and a road trip make for some great comedy. The little dramas and background stories unfolding through out add some touching moments. It deals with the root of common household issues (finding a future, relationship etc) spot on without losing the comedy element of it.

But most of all Dchar, Akkabi and Kenzari gel so well on the screen you'd think they actually have been friends for life. This movie should get way more love than it currently does.
