On their journey, the disparate duo have to make decisions that will also influence the lives of others.
A very slow burning self realisation road trip, best avoided.
I started looking at my watch about a 3rd of the way through. Mostly this film is slow, bleak and dark.
There's sparse humor, there's drama, there are some delicate moments but mostly lots of the monotony of travelling peppered with forgettable micro adventures and dialogue that is slow and dull, and so much of it. Lots of dark night time scenes.
The character Fionn Whitehead plays (Gyllen) is hard to believe, troubled and irrationally irrational, topped by the performance of Stéphane Bak (William).
A redeeming factor is the perspective of the immigrant poverty and hardships in the north of france.
I'd say avoid.
