Preposterous comedy with terrible acting
22 July 2015 | by (Madrid, Spain) – See all my reviews

This film is not intended to be a comedy, but three combined things would make you laugh. The crew is so dreadful, the plot so crappy and the screenplay so wacky that sometimes the only possible reaction is laughing. I know the film intends to be a mystery story with an Asian atmosphere but it fails completely. I would highlight two moments that are especially hilarious. The first one is a dialogue between Ecco and the protagonist. She ask what is the name of the Asian young woman. She replies "Ecco". "Ecco?" "Ecco, Ecco." "Ecco, Ecco?" "Ecco. Ecco" "Ecco". I understand is a reference to the mythological story about Echo but is simply preposterous or dumb, as you prefer. The other scene that is amazingly absurd, extremely bad played and that makes you laugh is when the bald French woman tells to the protagonist her son has been kidnapped. It's more or less like this: "-I have bad news. I have lost the car -Where is Jimmy? -He has been kidnapped. Sorry, would you forgive me? -We have to go to the police. -We cannot denounce it. I have not driving license, the car is not insured, I am an illegal immigrant and I have not hair at all." If this is a serious film I am the queen of England. Sara Driver, shame on you!
