a surreal movie.
16 December 2001 | by See all my reviews

This is a good comedy. However, it is surreal. It can never happen in real life. And the technique used in the movie is also surreal. Good thing about it is that it doesn't distract your attention. You won't have a hard time following through the story. Then it is just a comedy that you only want to watch it once.
