Interesting film
29 April 2000 | by smatysiaSee all my reviews

Interesting film. Patsy Kensit plays Katie, who speaks directly to the audience at times. Katie is narcissistic and slutty, and like most young women, makes appalling choices when it comes to men. I have long been a big fan of Kensit's, but to anyone else, Katie is probably intensely unlikeable. However, that seems to be one of the points of the film. Refreshing to see a foreign film sometimes and be free of the Hollywood conventions. Imagine Meg Ryan as Katie and you'll know what I mean. They would change this into an entirely different movie.
