Shallow failure
12 April 1999 | by (Copenhagen, Denmark) – See all my reviews

Pretty banal film that makes you wonder why and for whom it was made. Acting, script and direction is not very good (to put it mildly) - it wants to be "cosy" and "cute" but fails. At best, trivial. At worst, extremely shallow and empty.
