Great
4 May 2002 | by UACWSee all my reviews

This is a great one. It is so enjoyable. It is Ingrid's first-ever movie. And it is such great fun. Gurkan is fantastic, as is the Count, and Adophson is very convincing as well. It's just good fun and leaves you feeling all good inside. Sorry that it can't be more eloquent than that. But if you saw the smile on my face...
