Incredibly good
8 January 2008 | by nko_123See all my reviews

You all can read the plot summary from IMDb, so I won't write about it.

I got my hands on the DVD of "Olivia" yesterday. DVD cover didn't look great, more like erotic b-film, but WOW! The film runs only 1 h 20 minutes but many things happens during the film, and you won't be bored. There is something for everybody; romance, thrill, erotic and murders. Does that sound awesome combination? Maybe not, but in this film it is.

It looks like a big Hollywood studio film from the end of 1970's, but it was actually made with budget of $500,000. I have to admit that there are few moments when you can see that it was made with small budget, but it doesn't bother watching.

A must see for people who likes to see erotic thriller, but also for the IMDb users here who says that Lommel hasn't done any good film.

This is incredible.
