When Thomas takes his Harley into the deserts of Spain for a little solitude and contemplation, he meets Lucia, a young woman in trouble. Though her antics are constantly disruptive, it is through her special spirit, ultimately, that he finds the enlightenment he was looking for.Written by
The story of this movie is told quickly: Thomas wants to drive into the desert in order to read a book. On his way he meets the young woman Lucia who often gets into trouble. Although he originally wanted to go alone, he's taking her with him on his trip.
And that's more or less the whole plot. So the audience gets a kind of road movie with legendary actor Terence Hill being in an astonishing good health. It's great to see him again in a full movie. And in two scenes he's reminding us on his early classic movies with Bud Spencer.
But it should be clear that this movie isn't a comedy or wants to be like the best films of Spencer/Hill-films, but just a mixture of a road movie and drama.
But: this movie is just too slow, showing Lucia as a non-likable woman - and neither do we get an early answer why she is on tour and behaves like a childish, cheeky girl, nor why Thomas needed four years to start his trip. During this boring tour we will get to know a bunch of poorly animated insects, birds, etc. showing the lack of budget - and finally when we see the blessed virgin Mary wearing a white garment in the desert and bringing in religious tendences, the movie just leaves the audience confused and disapointed.
The best moments in this movie are, when Hill gives us reminiscent moments on his work with Spencer, e.g. the mini-western-town in the desert. But just a few good moments don't make a good movie. A sad recognition.
