what a mess
17 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

It is unimaginable how this film won anything at a film festival. Apparently it did in the "New York International Independent Film Festival". I would hate to see the losers.

The dialogue is unsteady. The story is chaotic at best. It's hard to say whether the problem is the acting, or the lines the actors are forced to say. For an independent movie, the entire film seems fake and superficial. Do not waste you time.
