While I am not an exact History major. Nor am I quite a Hitler freak or anti-Indie movies.

I found myself wraped around the dialog of the movie. The dialog may seem pretentious to others, but I found it quite original. Yes, the Frued thing was gimmickal, but it wasn't necessarily a bad one.

It was a light movie, fictional in nature. Slight tongue-in-cheek humor, with more than a handful of decent famous quotes you've heard over the years.

All in all I think when people bad mouth this movie, or call it crap. They forget what real bad film making is.

This movies deserves a view.
