un pantomime, cest la vie

Made in a magnificent manner, this time its about a man with a hat travelling his fiat 500 through the rural districts of southeastern france in the summer. its a great climax of scenic views, a multitude of cinematographic teqniques, lots of vividly spirited music and a great show about the pecularities and serendipitous ways of life.

this film reminds me of my norwegian grandfather who travelled the italian countryside in the 60's and 70's in his little simca, with an italian vocabulary of max 5 words, at the initial phase of dementia, near deaf on both ears shuffling coal in the belly of a steamtramper all his life, and glasses thicker than an underarm, making his max speedlimit to 30 km/h, always with a smile, greating you lifting his hat as he passes by...as a bowled snail... that was some kind of grandfather i can tell... lost his drivers liscence at age 83, reason? driving too slow, but the simca stood in his yard till death ten years later.

so if youd like to fall back to holiday memories in the great canyons of europe, do join this road trip, its lovely, witty and consequent, and most of all a funny story without a word...its kind of maestrodamus thinks the grumpy old man, with a recommend
