What a wonderful film for a rainy day...
21 February 2002 | by (Anywhere, anyhow...) – See all my reviews

... or a confused woman/man in the middle of an identity crisis! This wonderful comedy - it combines successfully the hilarious and the horrible - has nevertheless a strong underlying message of great seriousness: What matters is people, and their love for each other, and their strength to carry on. I've loved this film ever since I first saw it. It seems to be almost forgotten (except in Germany, where it still is a cult movie) - I am looking forward to the day when it will be released on video or DVD.
