Why be so harsh
23 October 2006 | by sean_mcnally1978See all my reviews

I don't believe this film should be on anyones "must see" lists for 2006, but I think it is being harsly critiqued.

Bottom line:

-Paul Mercier did a fine job with the direction. -The principal cast put in sound performances, especially when you consider the material they had to work with. -There was a few laughs.

If you want to support independent film...go see it! It is worth spending a few of your hard earned Euros...certainly better than wasting your coin on some trash that cost 100 Million based around a car crash.
