Very Underrated Little Flick
9 April 2003 | by (Fort Worth, Tx USA) – See all my reviews

Marx plays a teenage Dutch Jew at the time of the holocaust, with an obsession with American style cowboy films. This alone would make for a wonderfully eccentric storyline, but couple that with Lou Jacobi singing bawdy songs (wish he could have been this funny in Everything You Always Wanted To Know About Sex) and a wonderful ending (no spoilers here) and you have the makings of a nice under the radar gem, which is certainly worth seeking out.
