You have HIV and you just got laid off from your job. What do you do? You go on a trip and have fun, that is what! Felix, French-Arab gay man, hits the road to find his father in the heavely Arab populated southern France city of Marsaille. On the road, he meets people who each bring a missing part to his life.
The straight actor who plays Felix, Sami Bouajila, a French-Arab himself, is so good at acting that he has an oomph! Directors Olivier Ducastel and Jacques Martineau have dished in the DVD commentary that Bouajila even added an unscripted kiss to the movie. Now, that is what I call a straight man; a guy who is not confused about his sexuality.
Felix, who witnesses a murder, has to battle with his own racial fears. But, in a French soap opera, he finds a distraction from life's turbulous times. Truly, this 2000 French work is an adventureous movie, indeed. It is available from all large bookstores. Two thumps up, definitely.
