For a start, I wouldn't call it a comedy
31 January 2008 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

It is a good film, but I was expecting far better: after reading people's comments and also being fan of Jan Decleir who is indeed a very good actor. I wouldn't call this film a comedy at all, but that in itself is not a problem. The problem is that it is all very predictable and stereotypical: older lonely Westerner, desperate young Eastern European woman... blah-blah-blah, you name it. Yes, there were funny moments (mainly his meetings with other "potential brides"), but the whole picture is very bleak, just as the interior of the hero's house. Even Jan Decleir cannot rescue this film. You know in advance how it is going to end. You know exactly what the heroes are going to do next. Maria Popistasu is OK, but nothing extraordinary. And, most important, none of the heroes of this film deserves any compassion. In one word - boring.
