An uplifting and engaging road movie from France. Part of Roxy's month-long Lesbian and Gay season.
After the death of his mother, Felix discovers a box of letters from his father, who deserted his mother before he was born, he decides to find him, and so an adventure begins. Leaving Dieppe, and promising to meet his lover Daniel five days later in Marseille, Felix takes to the road. He decides to hitchhike across France, avoiding all major cities en route.
This beautiful 'road movie' slowly seduces the viewer, submerging them into a France where powerful issues that are rarely explored are tackled with great subtlety and intelligence.
