Surprisingly entertaining
27 August 2001 | by kqlongSee all my reviews

This film is no Pretty Woman. It is realistic and almost has the feel of a documentary. The dialogue is entirely everyday life. Several scenes involving the Durian are extremely hilarious. There is no semblance of glamour to this film.
