Just marvelous
11 June 2003 | by (Cologne, Germany) – See all my reviews

A tragicomic master piece. Genre movies are sometimes unreachable for the the general viewer or rather boring for those who are fans. This movie belongs to those, which manage to feed both.

The acting is marvelous and the presentation is credible.

A must see for every genre fan and every one else.
