This movie was a surprise to me. It was entertaining and it was inventive. This movie should get more attention, too bad it hasn´t been released in many countries. I saw this at school and it was taped from tv. Most interesting in this movie is that it has strange name. When you see the opening credits, you can expect any movie. The credits have kinda scifi feel to it. The movie is partly scifi, but it has many other genre elements.
First the film starts with drama comedy feel to it and then it begins to have scifi elements. After the first 20 minutes, the movie starts to go forward at fast speed. Visually the movie is inventive, there are close-ups of teeth and heart etc. If this movie would be remade in Hollywood, I think Steven Spielberg would direct it. Because this is an european movie, you can expect anything. I rate this movie 8 out of 10 (**** out of *****)
