Not a waste of time
22 April 2005 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie. The opening minutes were especially good, I thought, and they really grabbed my interest with their humour and unexpectedness (although I had no idea what the movie was about before I saw it anyway). I don't know that I felt much empathy with any of the characters, but they were interesting, the story was watchable if not overly gripping and the funny parts were genuinely funny. I don't know that the deadbeat boyfriend of Carola was very believable, but there was drama, romance, sex, comedy, misunderstanding, loss and love. What more could you want from a bit of light entertainment? It wasn't brilliant, but it was good fun. Why was it called 'Miffo' though?
