Summary: Young writer Sal Paradise has his life shaken by the arrival of free-spirited Dean Moriarty and his girl, Marylou.
Review: Brazilian director Walter Salles, best known for the acclaimed “Central Station”(1998) and “The Motorcycle Diaries”(2004), sought inspiration in Jack Kerouac’s novel to direct “On The Road”. The movie despite all the good intentions is wobbling in its approach, denoting accentuated pace problems, which once resolved, would give the boost that the story needed to succeed. Unfortunately this didn’t happen, letting us a bit frustrated in the end due to the lack of energy and determination. Watchable? Yes, but often with indifference or impatience during large periods of time.Relevant awards: -
