A good movie seldom mentioned
3 April 1999 | by (Kopavogur, Iceland) – See all my reviews

This is a great movie. Good story, good script lively characters based apparently on a true event. It seem to me hard to find information on this movie anywhere and I have not seen any references to it other than here.
