It wasn't hot, it wasn't steamy, but I sure felt Mombasa.
7 October 2002 | by (Turku, Finland) – See all my reviews

I thought this would be a tiresome tragedy about a young man with cancer. Boy was I wrong. This is a roadmovie with lots of humour and jokes about death. New and upcoming actors are always refreshing and this is no exception. This is a movie for everyone, with exception to the youngest toddlers, which might be scared by a nosebleed.
