an overdosis Fellini
8 March 1999 | by See all my reviews

I saw this film on the filmfestival in Rotterdam and to be quite honest, I thought it was a terrible film. It was full of cliches and I think the director had an overdosis Fellini. But the Master wouldn't like the film at all. There are absolutely no sympathetic characters, the story makes no sense and actors are no good (except for Anita Ekberg and Arno Chevrier in the hilarious part of Bob).
