little movie about bizarre Xmas Eve in the middle of nowhere
2 January 2004 | by vitarizSee all my reviews

so many odd characters make it impossible not to recognize one at least. or even get identified with your own darkest moments, especially when nothing happens as it is supposed to. to enjoy this delightful movie, it is advised to open up one's mind and strive to see the bright side in this one too.
