Very enjoyable movie, but why that ending?
19 October 2006 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed this movie a lot. Very good acting in general, very lovable characters, and lots of fun and heart-warming scenes. There was also a good deal of great (dance) music, and not just the kind you would think to hear in a place like the movie's "Heartbreak Hotel", but also some Balkan brass rhythms and very catchy Indian singing. I really appreciated that.

My main complaint is the ending. The ending (last 10-15 minutes) felt like it had been just "pasted" on, with little connection to the rest of the movie. IMHO, the movie would have been better if it had ended earlier. It felt like there was no good idea of how to tie the story together.
