When Alexander suddenly leaves for France, Lukas decides to go with him. He's been trailing behind his charismatic, big brother for his entire life, but during this road trip he finds out that he finally has to go his own way. He could never have suspected that this decision would be so all-encompassing.
A film about life. About relations between brothers. About the long trip defining each of them. About love, building a house as metaphor of self definition. Beautiful cinematography, good dialogues. And nothing more. The poetry of feelings and emotion was too, too often used. The desire to explore the deepest aspects of relation remains a good intention. The poetry of small things and details is familiar. The result - good performances, nice story, correct film. For a part of public is enough. For other, the beach scenes, the landscapes, the travel itself are the gifts. Or just presence of Jonas Smulders or - and Niels Gomperts. But, not ignoring the virtues of film, the story has not roots. It is convincing. Only beautiful.
