A truly bad movie. Poor taxpayers!
5 March 2008 | by schifezzuoleSee all my reviews

The movie has a storyline that does not work, you soon lose interest, it is full of stupid mistakes (e.g. since when do border guards in Tunisia speak Italian?) and it is truly badly acted. Many - supposedly - dramatic moments are acted in a way that makes them pathetic and laughable. The worst things of all is that it tries hard to have a intellectual/ social/ political message when at the end it is only a rather stereotypical story of lesbian love and meeting of different cultures. There is nothing really interesting in this film. Another silly Italian movie that is made solely with (Italian and European) taxpayers' money...
