A Cynical and Very Funny Love Story
16 August 2003 | by claudio_carvalhoSee all my reviews

Joe Lieberman (Danny Aiello) meets Shallen (the fantastic and great actress Christine Lahti), a prostitute, and become his preferential client. Later, he meets Kate (the beautiful Nancy Travis), a broker, who helps him to find a new house. Lieberman will fall in love with Kate, and many funny and cynical situations will happen. This short story is a masterpiece of the cynicism: great, outstanding, very funny. Congratulation to the writer, the screenwriter, the director Christine Lahti, cast and crew. I really love it! My vote is nine.
