    ★★★½

    not entirely sure why luca found the need to force an antagonist when he's really not necessary (amazing performance though), nor why he largely ignored a lot of the more interesting moral questions that come up, that are hinted towards but never discussed beyond he had a wife, oh no, what now. the character writing is the stuff to really love here, and at its best it does feel like a roadtrip movie with both of them running from nothing…
