A Wonderful Trilogy
4 February 2001 | by queennbmSee all my reviews

I stumbled upon this movie and am so glad I did. I thought I knew what would happen. But this movie was far from predictable. A must see. It's nice to see good movies that don't resort to 2 hours of profanities, sex, and violence for the sake of it. Thank you Andre, Robert and Louis
