A sad funny story that could happen to you!
27 February 2003 | by mifunesamuraiSee all my reviews

Poor Leon discovers a past that goes against everything that is Jewish. It takes a while for the story to kick start but once you get going, you fall into the flamboyance of the humour, enjoying the belly laughs, and maybe the dish as well.
