One trick pony
1 December 2005 | by (Birmingham, UK) – See all my reviews

I'm sure there's a social commentary in this film, but it escaped my as I fast-forwarded to get past the repetitive pans of cityscapes and pointless conversations which were best left on the cutting room floor.

The One Trick is that Elsa wants to visit an ex boyfriend (holiday romance) who lives in Italy, or rather Sicily as it turns out. It's just a fantasy she has in order to escape the mundanity of being a promo girl on the streets and the seediness of her friends' petty drug dealing.

The lead actress is quite sexy, and the coverage of her environs and the everyday struggle to find money and survive are the best things about this flick. If it was cut to about an hour and made for TV it would have been an improvement.
