Open what?
5 June 2003 | by (Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

This film is worth nothing really. Poor acting, amatorial direction, silly and obvious script. Of course it is a success being made by a woman and diplaying nudity... well that tells it all. Beside it has nothing to do with "noir" and the movie "Donnie Darko" that is a much better film. And it has nothing to do with italian film, please!
