A good movie
1 September 2001 | by (Dallas, Texas) – See all my reviews

My dad made me watch this movie with him, and I wasn't expecting anything too awesome. I was clearly surprised AND delighted with this movie, i liked the story-line and the acting.. it was both funny and touching.

Zeba Bakhtiar was cute and she did a great job in the some-what lead role.

What was truly remarkable w/ this film was the amazing use of color, it was very vibrant and in-your-face.. some scenes were so elaborate, it was kind of like the Moulin Rouge.

Anyway, this was a great film, I'd recommend it to everyone!
