Two old friends fulfill their third friend's wishes by taking his body back to Germany to bury him; much against his wife's wishes. Truly a remarkable story of three friends, interspersed with flashbacks to WWII to the place in Germany where the friend wants to be buried. During the journey they encounter a woman who helps them locate the place they are looking for. Good movie.

Ahhhh... Vickie!!! Mmmmmmmm... I'm going to place a hold on this - strictly on the merit of Jack's comment. I think any film that has "...an unforgettable allegorical character named Vickie..." is worth a look-see!!! ;-)

This production is effective both as a stirling road-trip film (one of my favourite genres) and as a World-War-II reconciliation narrative (a genre which often fails in execution but in this case is original enough to succeed.) Its numerous attractions include fine performances, a strong script that alternates between banal and punchy, lovely European cityscapes and landscapes (that made me homesick for the Old Country), plus an unforgettable allegorical character named Vickie.

The premise is good and promising, but unfortunately the plot deteriorates into being ridiculous and rather boring.

A nice lite drama/comedy/"romance" with fine old actors David Warner and David Jason and with a touch of magical realism.

Ultimately, this seems to be about redemption. Although it can't seem to decide whether it is about that, or a funny buddy/road trip movie.
