Yeah? For Dirk Benedict fans, there is only about 3 minutes worth watching. The movie is geared toward a "black" audience. Although this movie takes place in Stockholm, where I guess there aren't too many Africans around, the movie is far from making any kind of sense. Dirk Benedict plays some kind of photographer who has very little involvement in the movie. Without his addition to the cast, there is very little hope that this movie has an audience. The movie ends quickly with a murder and followed by a brushing? An OK idea if this is a horror movie, then again, the odd ending makes the entire movie uneasy and not entertaining. Hard to find because nobody wants to see it, this movie well never come out on DVD since the video alone is hard to find.
