I went to see this movie for free it was premiered only last week, (August 99) in Chile in the artsy flicks circuit. I never thought it was going to be so great, I thought it would be like Smoke but this one is so much better, it is a really magical love story, Izzy makes up this girl while he´s dying but you don´t know if she´s real or if she ever met him, it is really a nice movie. If you want to see good movies at theaters do not come to Chile because you´ll only see blockbuster films, such as 13 Warriors or Titanic.
