Fun watching, but serious, one of the worst movies EVER!
11 April 2010 | by (Germany) – See all my reviews

I don't know where all this reviews come from, just watched this movie and must say: One of the worst movies ever!

Don't get me wrong, its a nice movie, and the actors really try and Erika Walter is gorgeous, but the script, the lighting, the colors, the choreography, cutting, dramaturgy, casting, production design, closing credits, even the graphic design for the film poster, everything seems more like a high school project.

If i would not have read all the positive reviews and was curious what might happen to get them, i would have stopped watching the move after 20min...

But: Nice Idea, and with some tweaking the script could become a nice one for a good movie...

Maybe this movie is genius and i simply don't get it, but until this is proved i have to stick to the above written!

No hard feelings, i love you guys!
