Low budget at its best!!!!
4 February 2007 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

This is one of my ten movies to take with me onto a lonely island!

Made with absolutely no money on the streets of New York. Polishgirl(no English language knowledge!) comes to NY, loses all her money to an Italian crook and swears to find him. Finally he is the one who falls in love with her... Very simple storyline with extremely funny misunderstandings, chases, warm-hearted characters and a incredible ending. Reminds me of the early Jim Jarmush movies. Levy is nowadays known for the Jewish comedy "Alles auf Zucker" and the brand new Hitler- comedy. If anyone in German cinema is allowed to do one, then him.

Hope X Films Germany will release a DVD...
