GREAT film - Weird, Original, Smart, Daring, and very FUNNY!
1 October 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

A friend of mine saw this film last week and said I absolutely had to check it out. He was right. I loved it, from the very first minute. It had a great story combined with a tremendous performance. It asked big questions, explored a unique tone, and all the whole managed to be consistently funny. No small feat! Plus, it offered beautiful landscapes and fantastic original music. I have a feeling this guy (Karpovsky wrote, acted and directed the film) is gonna go on to make some very important films. In the meantime, if you like smart, subtle, dry character-driven tragicomedies, I strongly recommend you go on this journey. I can see this film becoming a cult classic some day!
