Nice effort !!
4 December 2010 | by (Thessaloniki , Greece) – See all my reviews

I saw the movie before two days in the festival of Thessaloniki. It has good performances , good actors. The plot was quick so during the film you will not get bored at all.The plot has some meanings also. You don't get use to watch movies with organic foods.In the beginning of the movie the first 10-15 minutes are a little confusing(not many action on the story) but later just getting better minute after minute. To tell the truth i was not expecting this movie to be good.. I think that Paul Gordon's and Liz Fisher's performances especially were very promised . The movie is a comedy and i can tell that it's a good one. I think that you cant get any better from a low budget movie!
