Delightful Comedic Enchanting film about life, dark and light
5 April 2004 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

What was up the previous reviewers butt, I dont know? Pure hate if you ask me. I mean, how could anyone destroy such a delightful and interestingly shot film so thoroughly as to make this reader doubt it was the same film at all?

This film was refreshing, happy, sad, completely entertaining if you want to see things done freshly with a camera and acting that takes you away into the movie itself. Reaching deep emotions quickly and coming up for air just as fast for the next scene, many times throughout, this cast held me in awe.

I reccomend this film to anyone who simply enjoys film. Period.

And if youre from some difficult childhood issues, you might even relate to the subject matter.

Oh, and take any uncomfortable objects out of your bum before viewing, please, or you'll end up sounding like that other reviewer, no matter the film.
