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.
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.
This movie really made reflect upon the fact of how complex it is to find a place in the world. How many people after finishing college and having some first work experiences really deal with uncertainty and confusion about which path is the right one to take. So we are here in the presence of a coming-of-age drama with an open-end. Good enough, sexy boys.
