His last day around family and friends turns into a war of emotions. His girlfriend Valerie, angry at him for leaving, rejects him.

Not even warm
23 November 2006 | by chris-3893See all my reviews

Sorry, but the house wasn't burning - it didn't even get remotely warm. The story is good and I expected something along the lines of Go! (fast paced, parallel stories, etc) but unfortunately the film didn't deliver. The film lacks a real beginning and ending. The different character's stories are alright but neither deep enough developed nor colourful enough depicted. Overall the film were a rather boring 90 minutes in the cinema - no big deal. It's not the worst film ever, but far from being really cool - mediocre at it's best (no big laughs, no tension, no action). I definitely won't buy this one on DVD. Oh, and the music sucked... My Rating: 3 out of 10
