Stick with it
17 June 2014 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

Viewing this movie's rating histogram reveals it's like Marmite. But my advice is stick with it because when it's good it's really really good and that more than makes up for the somewhat lame bits, which are only at the beginning to be honest. Perhaps I just needed time to warm up to the characters.

It's true there's not a strong plot but the characters stand out, especially Benny and Nadia. A second viewing would probably reveal a stronger emotional thread for the slow-of-heart, myself included. I'm not sure if this is a first for a Rom-Com / Mockumentary mash-up (thank-you, IMDb spelling engine), but I enjoyed it.

Thank-you Ed Reardon for inspiration when it comes to meeting IMDb's asinine 10 lines requirement. Isn't that right, Elgar?
