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

A road trip through cultural difference
22 June 2011 | by LazySodSee all my reviews

A Moroccan guy is instructed by his father to drive an old Mercedes taxi from The Netherlands to Rabat (a city in Morocco). When his friends learn of this they invite themselves to join on the trip and the three of them drive into the distance.

And so the film starts, after a short introduction into the three characters. This film is a typical road movie, with the three of them learning more about themselves and each other as they go and are influenced by the countries they drive through. The film is littered with conversations and run-ins with more or less random people and the interaction is great. Some of the people look a bit more flat than they should be - mostly because they bring their roles as if reading a story from paper instead of entire life like but the effect isn't strong enough to really annoy.

As expected there is a touch on the cultural differences between Western Europeans and (Northern) Africans - made worse by the fact that the three main characters in this film were either born in The Netherlands or living there for the longest of time and are therefore a lot more Western minded than their own people. The touch is there but it never goes further than relatively light and doesn't enforce something to think about, but it's good enough.

All in all, a very pleasant watch.
