WELL ACTED SLOW DRAMA
19 June 2001 | by (ShamuLand) – See all my reviews

No car chases or crashes.

Limited sexual content could be deleted and the picture would not suffer.

Extremely well acted by the male lead, please note he was also cast in the Original "Jacob the Liar", a Cz film of the mid 70's only remade after the enormous popularity of "Life Is Beautiful"[almost identical storylines].

See this movie if you have the opportunity!
