Good until the ending--it felt like something building and then falling apart story-wise.

Marvelous picaresque adventure of two teen-age boys, outsiders in their school, who build their own "car" and take off on an unforgettable road trip. The chemistry between the two leads is genuine and there are both funny moments (a misunderstood dentist) and tender ones (including the sweetest use of violence as one boy uses his newly taught skills to honor his friend.) Because this is in French, it will probably be overlooked by a lot of people, but if you liked films like "Stand By Me" or books like Tom Sawyer, this is a great choice. The well-known French actress, Audrey Tautou (from Amélie), plays the worried mom. Minor moments of sexual exploration including fantasizing about a possible girlfriend.

I thought this movie could be fun from the trailer, it takes me back to younger days of enjoying movies like Stand By Me or a Disney movie just without all the sappy focus group last five minutes of He-man moral story. There are some very funny bits.

Sexual Content: Typical 14-year old boys: drawings, fantasies. Nothing extreme.
