However, on her second day, Celia goes away leaving a 5-year-old child behind, Kiki, and a note promising to be back in a couple of days.

Tragic Kingdom
3 June 2003 | by m67165See all my reviews

I knew this was a movie that was supposed to start as a light comedy and get crazy along the way. But I was surprised at the madness that ensued. I left this one feeling rather weird. Some might feel it is way too heavy for comfort. It certainly dares to be different. And the music is great.
