Give the Cow a chance!
8 March 2009 | by ottoRiversSee all my reviews

That's the kind of titles I couldn't resit, I had to see it. The only thing is that it had no incarnation, even on VHS for years, it was only screened in a few festivals, then sinked into Oblivion for a while. One day looking for it for the thousand time, I saw that "Duck's Breath Mystery Theater" who created it, was selling the DVD threw their website, I had to have it.

All this to say that after all that time, I could have been more than disappointed, but that was not the case here (wich is quiet rare). First of all, you have to know that there's no "Cow from Hell", so to speak in the Movie. "Zadar" is the tittle of the movie that a small crew is filming within the movie, and it is a comedy about the many problems of shooting a low budget film in his native Hometown, with a crew of friends, family and using the nearby villagers as extras.

Once you know that, you can't be disappointed any more, as it is very funny most of the time, the cast is good and you don't feel like wasting your precious life time watching another useless junk.

It may be far for perfect, but considering the money involved, they pulled a very nice flick, that'll appeal to low budget films buffs and the others, because it's full of nice dialogs and you can almost feel the good will and the energy of the people involved to make you spend a nice time. If you have the occasion, give it a try, it's much better than most of the DTV that plagues the shops nowadays, and it surely not deserve to be forgotten.
