different characters, same story
24 April 2013 | by See all my reviews

When I went to see this movie I was full of doubts and without any idea how can a film like this look like. But from the very first moment it grabbed me, took me out of the real world and for one hour and a half I was just sitting with an open mouth or because I had to laugh or because I was that amazed. The creativity that comes from this film is inspiring. The two main character change their face and body in every 10 seconds from blonde to black, from older lady to a cartoon figure, it doesn't matter, the action and the movements are still hold together. However, the audience gets distracted by some cuts when you actually have to use your own imagination, to find the right place for that scene in the movie, which makes the whole experience even more exciting. Meanwhile you watch a beautiful Hollywood love story through the eyes of more than 400 actors and actresses, you still can have the "aha" experience by recognizing historical movies from only 5 seconds.
