Trivia

According to writer/producer Dan Mirvish, the film was made to ensure that the Academy Award category for Best Original Musical would have a minimum of five entries as required for the category to be activated, which would give his musical film Open House (2004) a chance to be one of the three Oscar nominees. However, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences nonetheless chose not to offer an award in the Best Original Musical category that year. (Since then, the Oscar rules have been changed to provide that Best Original Musical category may be activated only by special request of the Music Branch Executive Committee in a year when the field of eligible submissions is determined to be of sufficient quantity and quality to justify award competition.)

Very Original
14 March 2008 | by See all my reviews

This film was a huge surprise to me while i watched it at Cinequest in the big California Theatre in San Jose. It's a musical, which normally I don't like, but I have to say this one was different. Robert Peters, who directed the film and stared in it, did such a wonderful job. During his Q & A he told the audience that he only had two other people for his crew! Most of the dialouge was made up on the fly and he actually made the film while attending another film festival in Germany! I can't say enough great things about this movie, the only bad thing is that you really tend to notice the camera work and it shakes a bit. If you happen to come across this film- check it out!
