I love it
13 April 2003 | by molitor-1See all my reviews

One of the best comedies I have ever seen. I have been watching it maybe for 8 times and I just love it. It is black,black, black. It was probably low budget movie even then but dialogues are excellent. It is pity that main character who died so quickly in first few minutes died also very young in his real life.
