If it was an American film, it would be on the top...
24 December 2000 | by (italy) – See all my reviews

Maybe nobody has seen it, but it is a real pity. The plot is perfect, it is a cruel description of what the modern society is. Religion, family and politics. Maybe, the reason for its flop is a misunderstanding about its genre. It is not a funny story at all. It's tragedy. Beautiful. When you've seen it, you need to see it again
