User Reviews

 
Character study, great cinematography
20 April 2020 | by numberone_1See all my reviews

One of the "buddy study" or male-bonding genre that follows the reunion and subsequent days of two childhood friends from Sicily, Antonio and Agostino, after 15 years of no contact / lost contact. Beginning in Sicily when the two characters were boys, the drama unfolds as the two regain contact. Agostino is a truck driver; Antonio's life path isn't easily specified by occupation. Rather, it is specified only briefly, identifying the places he has lived. The commonality among them is a drifting of sorts. The film examines their reunion as Antonio hitches a ride with Agostino on a delivery from Antwerp to Venice, at first uneasy, while we learn about the two boyhood friends and how they come back into each other's lives. We see them work through the unknowns of how / why their friendship stopped along the road to recovery. Great cinematography in the stunning physical geography, actual footage along the Autobahn, in truck stops, and a ferry terminal (among others), further enhanced by the outstanding and realist acting by the two male leads.
