Synopsis:
It's just like a bad soap opera; Felix's father deserted his mother long before Felix was born and never contacted his "family" again, or at least that's what Felix thought. After the death of his mother Felix finds a box of letters from his father complete with an address in Marseille. And so the seeds of an adventure are sown... Leaving his lover Daniel in Dieppe with a train ticket to Marseille five days later and a promise to meet him there. Felix takes to the road, his romantic intention to hitchhike across France avoiding all of the major cities en route.
His journey is shaped in many ways by the people and situations that he encounters along the way and five days of travel gives him an opportunity to examine his own reasons for wanting to meet someone who clearly doesn't have any interest in him. The journey itself becomes more important than the goal; because those who he meets create an alternate family that more than makes up for the one that Felix thought he never had.

Voyage of (self) discovery - The Adventures of Felix review by Kurtz

Spoiler Alert
12/04/2010

As cheery and freewheeling as its eponymous hero, “Drôle de Félix” is a likeable travelogue which charts the progress of Félix from Dieppe in Normandy to Marseilles and beyond in search of his long-lost father. On the way, he meets a cast of colourful characters who seem to represent members of the family that he never had. Félix is perpetually cheerful and prone to breaking into song and doing a little jig for no apparent reason, but there is a serious side to the tale too, as a racist murder haunts his progress through the beautiful countryside.
