2 October 2003 | by brazyliaSee all my reviews

This short film rides mainly on the strength of Harry Kemelman's story, but it still provides a surprisingly engrossing watch. Makes you feel like reaching for a Kemelman's collection and enjoy some more! And find out what else this little known director may have made...
