Silly, funny and little film
8 December 2002 | by (Buenos Aires, Argentina) – See all my reviews

The story between this two characters is silly but funny. Antoine is a thief and the woman here is caught (in love) by him. And that leads to and intriguing, complicated, silly, funny, enveloping film. Bizarre at the end but good enough. Wanna know why, because it is so dull that foolish makes you laugh. Incredible. 6 points, not one more. Very little picture.
