if you can stand all the mistakes...
20 August 2000 | by (The Hague, Netherlands) – See all my reviews

I am sure there are many people out there that would like this movie, but I just could not stand watching it through to the end; in every second shot the microphone would be visible in the top of the screen and once you notice, you will keep on seeing it, taking your mind completely off the story.

I'm sure these people intended to make a great movie, but just didn't want to spend too much money on hiring a good film crew.

Bummer.
