Lookin' for friends
12 September 1999 | by Against_The_GrainSee all my reviews

It's very usual to get involved in any kind of movements attracted by friends, money or anything else. Specially in our youth period of life, this things are very common. I am young so I know how this things are. That's why I understood this movie in my reality. & I liked it. Not because I am a neo nazi or something like that, but I felt it very close about young movements & stuff. The movie was pretty good. I didn't realized it was a Canadian production, so I guess this is my first Canadian movie saw. & the impression was such cool. But there are a few things I can't get in this movie. Is the old lady of NIM senile or maybe crazy? Celebrating Christmas in a Nazi way? Come on...
