The road to Istanbul
8 November 2013 | by Prismark10See all my reviews

Will is an odd film of a 11 year old boy called Will (Perry Eggleton), whose father has died and he attempts to make his way to Istanbul to watch Liverpool play AC Milan in the 2005 Champions League final.

Damien Lewis and Bob Hoskins make cameo appearances. I did think that a 11 year old boy setting out for a journey across Europe alone rather filled me with horror.

Of course before long Will loses his tickets to crooks in Paris but meets an ex Yugoslav footballer and together they set out to Istanbul.

Liverpool legends Kenny Dalglish, Steven Gerrard and Jamie Carragher also make cameo appearances.

Now the 2005 Champions League final will go down in history as one of the all time great finals. Yet the film finishes before the match starts so we are deprived of the footage of Liverpool's comeback as they secured their fifth European Cup and getting to keep the actual trophy with their victory in penalties.

It is essentially a road movie, slightly sentimental, even a bit surreal. It leads to a feel good climax unless you are an AC Milan fan but it is still a slight film.
