Ultra-quiet comedy of microscopic humiliations.
15 September 2003 | by rdlSee all my reviews

When the friend they have in common craps out on them, two young filmmakers who hardly know each other struggle to enjoy themselves without money in a wintry, deserted resort area. Ultra-quiet comedy of microscopic humiliations.
