From book to ... road
17 September 2016 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

While I haven't read the original source for this (the book that is), you can feel it coming through. Every ooze and (line) drop suggest something bigger behind this. So while again I can't confirm it, it feels like there is much more to this that made it to the screen. Of course that can be argued about any adaptation. But with a self discovery and/or journey the very famous person (played by an actor and not himself, which makes kinda sense considering the title) is making we are expecting quite a bit out of it.

And the actors do not disappoint, there are quite a few funny and hilarious moments. Be it his attempts at connecting or finding or discovering or other sorts of "failures". But only if you fail and never give up, you truly know where you are and where you should go (pun intended). Shortcuts included ...
