weaker then I expected based on the plot., 19 October 2000
Author: martynuk from chicago, USA

The plot & idea were quite interesting and deserved a much more professional implementation. Both acting and directing seemed amateur at times.

I was disappointed that this supposedly independent film had very weak and quite Hollywood-style ending.
