Standing on both feet
8 April 2009 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

And not afraid to pull any punches! If you like your comedies dark, than this one will be a movie you should look out for. It is anything but political correct. It is borderline many times and has a few flaws, but it is funny as can be.

Again only if you can wrap your mind around the crazy plot and the sometimes degrading humour. The actors do a fantastic job, it's shot a bit like a documentary and the music is really great. It's nicely edited and has a strong "strangely" positively feeling about it. I just loved the movie and I'm happy to have caught it on the Fantasy Filmfest in Stuttgart.
