Lost in translation 2. Now in France
FrenchEddieFelson29 July 2019
A road trip from Morocco to France with two young men as lost as disillusioned. Gyllen (Fionn Whitehead) seeks to join his father in the south west of France with the camper van of his father-in-law. He will quickly come across William (Stéphane Bak) who is desperately looking for his elder brother who would be in the vicinity of Calais, in the north of France. Together, they will travel more than 2000 km and face the dangers, one by one.

Not as accomplished as his previous movie Victoria (2015), Sebastian Schipper uses a documentary style to trace a desperate odyssey. After Dunkirk (2017) and The Children Act (2017), Fionn Whitehead is truly an actor of great ability.

Great Movie

Thoroughly enjoyed this movie. Such a shame that some of the reviewers have no idea of real life for some and struggle to spell.

A must see!

Roads is a brutally honest and poetic road movie about male companionship and human compassion. The two lead actors are intense and authentic, and overall this is an elegantly paced and breathtaking piece of cinema.

Stunning movie, more than worth the watch.

Everything just clicks, the plot, the actors, the authentic scenery, everything. It felt like I was watching the actual events happening, which we know from the news... The movie was very well directed and produced. P.S. It's best to ignore bernardconneely's review. His review is not about the movie itself but about politics and his own views on it. His review does not make sense whatsoever. It's just an outburst of his hatred for refugees and immigrants, and has nothing to do with the movie itself.
