Charming, witty, original

9/10
Author: mdom from United States
22 November 2008

This opera prima is as good as it gets. Beyond a simple premise, multiple existential and emotional issues are explored in sensitive ways. This is a fresh new approach to intelligent, creative and great quality movie-making. Basic human decency is juxtaposed with greed and treachery in such a way that makes you a better person when you leave the theater. Above all, it keeps your interest all along, you do not want it to end. Life and death, love and hate, aggressiveness and submission are shown within the context of a commercial situation which turns into a whirlwind of twists and turns with totally original and unexpected developments.
