Despite being a rather high budget movie this Swedish/Turkish co-production was only shown twice in Sweden, at the small movie theater "Fågel Blå" in Stockholm. The total audience was 84, of which 25 paid for their tickets. The reason for this was that no distributor was interested in the movie, which meant the production company itself had to show it in order to get their SEK 3.6 million funding from the Swedish Film Institute.

If anybody's actually been able to watch it the whole way through, let me know.
I rented this one because I thought it might have some good visuals of the city at least. And Timothy Bottoms isn't hard on the eyes either. But it simply couldn't hold my interest. It just looks like something a couple of college students put together with a cam-corder and Daddy footing their travel bill.
