14 December 2004 | by dyahpitaloka_djokolelonoSee all my reviews

imagine yourself as a successful business woman. imagine yourself having everything. imagine yourself having a perfect life. then imagine you lose everything because you're bankrupt. after that, imagine how you manage to stand again after you've fall... this is a movie about how to deal with the 'down-side of your life' and how to make it 'up' again. as a bicycle messenger, naomi learn a good advice about living in a real world : never give up.she done well because she manage to choose hard-life-with-fun-work-though-less-money than easy-life-with-fun-work-and-much-money. nice movie, nice message.
