a truly great comedy
16 August 2006 | by (Bermuda) – See all my reviews

this film is rare. karpovsky is a genius. if you like really good, authentic comedy with a touch of melancholy - a film that stays with you in a warm, funny, comforting way, then go see this film if you can find it. if there is a god, this film will find DVD heaven. i don't want to spoil anything about it but this film is one of those few refreshing gems that surprises you in kind, funny ways. you end up letting karpovsky lead you by the hand through the journey, you're just happy to be there and see his mission through. i guess what i am saying is that i've seen it twice now and it's like a good record, it starts off strong and then sinks into you more and more with repeat viewing. I can't wait to see what keepsake comes up with next.
