weird and wonderful
11 September 2003 | by (Moscow) – See all my reviews

Damn, that is one crazy love story. I' m not a fan of romcoms, but this movie had some pretty dark edges. All characters were so out of it, that they become mesmerizing. You never know what they are going to do next. It is not your typical love story that's for sure. It's a good way to be recognizable for New Zealand film community when you have no money and no stars. All you have to do is turn a typical love story into a blackest relationship comedy without the blood or gore. Well-done guys! The film is not only watchable, but it is highly amusing. The only problem with this film that had was the fact that i hated every single character in it. They all behaved like some crazy weirdoes, who never know what they want. On the other hand, probably, there lies the charm of the movie. Where have you seen a romantic comedy where all characters are annoying bunch of dummies?
