A wonderful comedy
9 March 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I recently saw this film at the Sedona International Film Festival. I found this to be a charming comedy about a village's battle with a multinational company and the Portuguese government over their domain name. As another reviewer said, it isn't necessary to have much knowledge about the internet and domain names to enjoy this film. When I explained the movie to some friends, I immediately told them not to worry about the intricacies of international law and trademark infringement that form the device that launches the movies plot. Why? Because this is a movie about people and it is filled with a cast of wonderful characters. No one is just a plot device. From top to bottom the characters are interesting, quirky and just fun to watch interacting with each other. I highly recommend this film My only complaint was that at times the subtitles were a bit difficult to read against various backgrounds. A truly enjoyable film!
