After having broken up with his girlfriend and left his job, Simon has come back to his small hometown in the countryside, where he meets up again with his old friend Julien. The two 30-year-old, unemployed and idle men decide to reinvest in an old dream from their teenage years: hitting the road.

Not bad, considering the so contemporary uncertainty issue that affects the 30-something generation (to wich I belong too): the difficulty of making choices even though we intimately know what's right for ourselves. Every choice is a renunciation, and you must learn to deal with it. Keep your ground and stay is as much tough as leave and try to move forward. In both cases, courage is key. And the end is open.
I guess you can't go wrong with genuine characters and good acting... "Mobile home" is a simple (yet touching) film about finding your own path in life and the ever-changing decisions we make along the way. The on-off dynamic can be a little tiring after a while, but the cast is quite talented and the experience itself is enjoyable — if not relatable.
In den Zeit der Erfolgreichen, der Tüchtigen und Helden auch Menschen zu zeigen, die etwas ausprobieren, wegen Unzulänglichkeit an ihrem Vorhaben scheitern und doch einen Weg zu sich finden - das mochte ich an diesem einfach gemachten Film. "Das ist doch sehr mutig", wird einem der beiden Antihelden gesagt, und gemeint ist damit der Mut des Alltags. Die Zeit der Helden zu Grabe zu tragen, wäre endlich an der Zeit.
A slow burner of a film that neatly encapsulates the time of life when impulsive decisions are literally life-changing. 2 lads from Belgium act on a romantic notion to hit the road but find that family loyalty and animosity are powerful driving forces in their lives and decisions. Add in the overwhelming urge for romance and procreation and an impulsive act becomes mired in complications. Ultimately rewarding.
Quite ok but more or less TV material. It is a modern-day tale, with nice acting and interesting observation on this 30+ generation kind of stucked with their lives. But it never brightens our horizon, you see it all coming, it aims small and succeeds.
