So the film is not a great creation, but it has it's own magic in my eyes.
12 July 2002 | by sivanvsSee all my reviews

Although this film is lack of something small that can make it more than just a bad film, (maybe good directing.but who am I to judge?), there is a special urban atmosphere in the film, that can really create an empathy between the viewers and the characters. What the characters represent, which is being an addict, being sick or crazy, and stand for nothing as a matter of fact, is a symbol. It symbolizes the dark side of the urban culture, and I think the film surprisingly manage to create a conception and pass it towards the viewers. Many symbols of the urban culture are used well in the film: Crimes, alcohol, the subway, the empty big studio apartment and of course the kleptomania. There is a hidden message in the film, you just need to work hard in order to be able to recognize it. So the film is not a great creation, but it has it's own magic in my eyes.
