Storyline

Edward Kaminsky, an aging ad man, wants a golden parachute from his agency; he must first land the Opel auto contract. Rosa, a youth with wealthy parents, wants to establish herself as an artist. The clumsy and enthusiastic Viktor, not quite honest, wants work. When he wanders into Kaminsky's meeting with Opel and says something about irony, the Opel director wants him in on the campaign. Then he steals an idea from Rosa that the Opel director loves. Before Rosa discovers he's expropriated her idea, Rosa and Viktor become lovers. Father-son feelings materialize between Kaminsky and Viktor. Can the impulsive Viktor hold it together before Rosa learns the truth and flies away? Written by <jhailey@hotmail.com>

Not that bad.
25 November 2007 | by insomniac_rodSee all my reviews

A movie that is not intended to be funny but tries to talk about how sacrificing fortune and fame for art is worth some problems (big problems).

Viktor Vogel manages to experience fortune, recognition, not honest attitudes (cheating others' ideas for publicity/advertising), and even getting kicked out of the place where he lived.

Overall this is a fresh dramatic-comedy feature that does not tries to be more than what it is. I thought this was an indie film but the distribution company behind it makes it worldwide available.

I caught it on a local Mexican t.v. channel at 4:00 a.m. and I had the kind of entertainment I expected for that hour.

Recommended for people who enjoy light tragic comedies.
