Why say "little", it's nothing
1 August 2004 | by loohzeeSee all my reviews

No, i would not want to see this film again. The leading character is flat, you don't want to join his life, not even in the "sx"-episodes. You don't believe, what is happening to him, why she, Katharina, the only amiable character, comes back to him (is she this dull?), the plot is thinner than silk. The Californian studios would have made a acceptable main-streamer nothing out of it, but don't waste our (german) tax for "Filmfoerderung". And erase this little boy named Ben, who has lived through such many years of wisdom. Don't compare this to High Fidelity! Have You seen any DVD-Xtra-features: There are none visible...
