An accomplished comedy-drama
1 March 2002 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

Tammuz has crafted a solid work here. He focuses heavily on character, and his actors give the performances to match it. True, the vast majority of the humour comes from differences between characters from either side of the atlantic... but there is enough material there to bring the occasional belly laugh. Moments here and there are inspired (the railroad stands out), some are very moving, and all in all this is well worth a look.
