Goofs

At 55 minutes when Carla is singing, she is wearing cream coloured shoes and gown but when she steps out of the gown she is wearing black shoes and a camisole that would have been obvious under the gown. When she is back in her room she is again wearing her cream coloured shoes with a cream coloured camisole. See more »

User Reviews

Glum East European co-produced melodrama.
24 March 2002 | by MozjoukineSee all my reviews

This one could have had novelty value from its Sofia settings and there is a hint of the potential when Jennifer Tilly shows up as the American girl curious about the 149 political parties and a comparison with Spain after Franco.

Unfortunately, her winning performance is the film's only real asset. The plot about revenging on her U.S. crime boss dad is solemn and unconvincing.
