Glum East European co-produced melodrama.
24 March 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

This one could have had novelty value from its Sofia settings and there is a hint of the potential when Jennifer Tilly shows up as the American girl curious about the 149 political parties and a comparison with Spain after Franco.

Unfortunately, her winning performance is the film's only real asset. The plot about revenging on her U.S. crime boss dad is solemn and unconvincing.
