great sleeper
5 August 1999 | by (Oulu, Finland) – See all my reviews

This is a film I saw years a go in Finlands TV, and I have been searching information of it ever since. Now I found it. This a great film (although I voted 8). A young man from India comes to US, and wants to be US citizen. He meets a girl, and so on. I don't want to spoil the film by telling all about it. I want to see it again, don't know how.
