Pablo, a war veteran in Spain, feels he is on the verge of death. He then sends his three adopted sons, originally from Liège, in the footsteps of his turbulent past. They will meet on their way two old manipulative anarchists, a captain of the Guardia Civil strange in many respects, a former torero owner of a bistro as well as a commander who confuses his barracks with an opera house. Charlie, one of the three brothers, will find love alongside the beautiful Angela, while the other two will find meaning in their own lives.

North meets South
9 October 2005 | by The_PcSee all my reviews

A nice little picture full of sunshine and light hearted fun. Do not look for special effects or super heroes, this picture is about normal people, about being the same by being different.

Pablo sends his three adoptive sons on a mission to Spain: bring back the Madonna he remembers from his youth. Something that proves a bit trickier than expected once there. Their voyage is as much about getting to understand their father's past as it is getting to grips with their own (unknown) past and dealing with their present life. A quest that will bring together people from the past and present and forge new friendships and love.

A witty film with a story like they can still make them on the old continent, with a nice feel-good factor and funky soundtrack.
