Comments:
"One film stood out and took us on a special and very entertaining road trip through Europe. The film has a smart, funny and well-written script with humour suited for both children and adults. The film has a rich and imaginative fictional universe with quirky and colourful characters, and both the characters and the events are exciting and engaging."
