A Jewish girl and black boy run away from there lives, find each other and win a house.
14 July 2006 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

This movie was good -- at least I thought it was -- it may have been very weird, but I still thought it was good. If you like bizarre movies this one is it. Independent movies are so much fun aren't they? I have to say that I did get a little confused because they kept talking about the Nazis and Jews, but that could be because I missed the very beginning. But I really just like the parts where almost nothing is happening but what you really need to hear, the parts that really matter. But what could matter more than the three main Characters? I thought that they where very well portrayed, however, I thought that some of the smaller roles were a little too...how do I put this? I guess just too over the top. All in all I just thought this movie was fun.
