nothing special
28 June 2013 | by (France) – See all my reviews

Beginning and the base of the story was interesting, and going on fine. Then when Laszlo (Frantzen) comes back to family, the story starts to change more to some gangster stuff... and also Laszlo's character is widely annoying and idiotic, and I didn't realize why he is speaking such a stupid way, and not sounding natural at all. Well... gangsters comes even more, little fighting, good against the evil. Kind of basic story. Not to much humor inside as I was expecting. Some ultra cheesy singing parts and music in this film made want to skip the end totally; just too much sentimental crap. I didn't even care anymore how it will end, what will happen. It's easy to imagine anyway. Of course movie was not full of bad stuff. Some acting and film shooting is very well made, and this movie actually had some nice idea. Only how it became after all wasn't a success.
