enough freshness and life to make a worthy watch
11 May 2005 | by (France) – See all my reviews

This is a tough movie to define. It's certainly catching, well paced and intriguing. My friend kept asking me why this and why that, I didn't know the answers but I was almost sure that the end will enlighten those darker areas the plot kept feeding. Well, despite leaving some empty spaces and loose threads, you get the feeling of a well rounded story telling, and end up forgiving or even thanking it for having enough freshness and life to make you feel that it's a worthy watch. After this kind of movies, it's going to be harder every time to go back to the big budget rotten American formula that's been rotting us for far too long. Perhaps some morons at Hollywood might realize that in movies, money doesn't make up for the lack of talent.
