Funny and short
18 June 2014 | by See all my reviews

Not all jokes hit home and it is very aggressive in its humor, but it still is funny, if you let yourself into it. The running time is short and the detective part of the movie is really nice. Obviously there is more than a bit of an erotic part to it and more than half of the movie is based on that.

The "print" that has to be taken is a story in itself, but this is not exactly what it seems. There are a couple of things that are not what they seem. And things will happen that you will expect more or less. One crime is committed that is really well thought of. If it works it's actually quite nice ... though I wonder if anybody still has one of the important ingredients to commit that today ...
