Simply not worth seeing.
10 May 2000 | by (NY) – See all my reviews

It is impossible to understand what the filmaker was trying to convey. Two worthwile scenes in the entire movie, but they were not worth the money for the rental. The description on the backcover says that the movie is about the main character's rage and a path to redemption. However, I simply did not feel his "rage" and his redemption was in plain sight since the beginning. Perhaps the only salvation came that the DVD had trailers of "Character" and "City of the Lost Children" movies far more worth the rental money.
