My Rating: 2/5 stars



This is the story of two women Helen and Priscilla who don’t know each other but by chance at a small supermarket they meet and Priscilla gets stuck on this old people’s coach to France with Helen. Helen has her own agenda, she is an old filmstar that would like to go to a funeral of an old friend but needs a companion this is where Priscilla comes in. But what kind of trouble will this adventure bring?


Helen was a character with such depth and regret at her life you felt so sorry for her but also connect more with her because of that. She also had this great sassiness to her which kept you laughing throughout. Priscilla what a complicated character with such a heartbreaking backstory she did all she could in life but always felt it wasn’t enough you just wanted to give her a hug and tell her it will get easier. Pauline did amazing job playing her as you could feel every emotion going through her and completely understand her. Alberto was such sweet and endearing character also brought a lot of youth and fullness to the story. Frank I understood his character but I also hated him because he was detached from life which so sad.


It was a funny story with some really sad and heart-warming parts to it. I felt like it need an extra character at times as at points I got very irritated with having a lot time spent on Helen and Priscilla’s relationship. It was on point but at times it lacked something.

My Thoughts:

I enjoyed this film and it had its funny moments but it was not for me as it was missing something. However, for those who enjoy those growing old stories this is good one for you filled with funny lines.

Let me know if you have watched it and what you thought!
