Really a good movie!
5 July 2001 | by fish999See all my reviews

Really a good movie! About woman(actually about all people),about life,about very basic elements in everyone's life... One of the most important points is:Peter and his friend Heidi, the difference between them and the common points of them, it makes you realize something simple but important...
