    In this engaging, understated comedy, it is the journey and not the destination that matters.

    Optimistically explores how vastly different people can come together, and how any journey is more about what happens along the way than simply getting from one place to another.
  3. An odyssey of self-discovery of much charm, humor and admirable subtlety.
  4. 70
    A wafer-thin, sweetly sentimental picaresque with semiserious overtones.
  5. 60
    It would all be too obviously feel-good if Ducastel and Martineau weren't also tuned in to the liberating drift of the open highway and a sharp native humor that adds needed flesh and blood to their walking metaphors.
  6. Perhaps simply discovering a film so dedicated to a different perspective is adventure enough.
  7. 40
    Makes its points gently; the picture presents its socially conscious messages as if they were written in the sand, on the beaches where Felix would probably prefer to frolic.

    I loved this movie - the vignettes are all engaging and the music keeps the mood upbeat as Felix make his journey south to meet his long lost father.
