To call this road movie unusual would be a major understatement. To call it fuzzy in terms of goals and plans would be accurate. To say that pieces don't seem to fit with each other would ring true too. And still there is something here that makes this a more than intriguing watch. While we have a coming of age on the road finding oneself story (or not), the main plot is convoluted.

A boy is getting send away because a mother can't handle him and not being able to handle things is a running theme. Not being able to focus (even when our two main characters find one thing they have in common/are longing for) is another part of the story. For some it might feel like it tries too hard to be artful (being b/w and using the old aspect ratio of 4:3, having a song played that the audience can't actually hear which is one of the "motivators" and going "old school" in general), but some others will really cherish in its style, rather than being confused by its lack of real substance. Which corner do you belong to?
