Captivating road movie story
29 March 2020 | by richard_burdgeSee all my reviews

The road movie has been re-invented may times but the Doo Dah Man is something different. Not seeking to shcok or surprise, this film gently builds the accidental relationship between two travellers with a generational difference. Both esacping something, they uneasily discover and devlop friendship and human care along the journey. The story draws you in calmly and carefully leads you to a compelling need for an outcome for both of them individually, and for their relationship. A most enjoyable and tenderly protrayed story.
