lives up to it's title completely
17 February 2002 | by esmeeSee all my reviews

Saw this movie at the Filmfestival in Rotterdam, years and years back. I must admit: I've remembered the title and some of the scenes. That had to do with the quality of the pic, but not in the way the director hopes to be remembered. My thoughts at the time: what the *##*** IS this??!! and Why do people invest time and money in something so horrible?! Like 90% of all the other visitors, we left after 20 minutes.
