Heartwarming enjoyable film!

This is a fresh, wacky funny movie with heart and very good use of symbolism. Characters are interesting and not perfect (which is ok) and chemisty between Sam and Julian is charming. There are also sad and moving elements of the film so it feels more real. It's a perfect balance between comedy and drama. And set is amazing of course, it's New Zealand. Enjoyable comedy adventure with more serious undertones. I also like the simple story and the idea of two free spirits, outcasts of the society against the bureaucratic system. Would love to see more films like this one. A must see! 5-/5
