Bala!
16 October 2002 | by See all my reviews

This is what great movies are all about. I don't want to spoil any of the mystery involved in discovering great or unknown cinema. The cinematography, and simplicity of this independent film is as original as they come. It's only ashame that this film is not as widely known as it should be. Sit back, get some popcorn, and watch the magic unfold. Bala Bala!
