Storyline

A renowned actor named Otto is the epitome of the problematic but beloved ladies man. Even when drunk he still knows more about filmmaking than does the amateur who is directing him in his latest movie. But what should the unreliable star do when a local actor joins the crew as his understudy? Comic situations arise not only because of the well-known environment, but also from an inclination to authentically capture the various relationships. Written by Pusan International Film Festival

It's a movie
29 November 2010 | by kosmaspSee all my reviews

Actually it's two movies (sort of), but you will get that if you watch it or read the general description of the plot. But having two things going on isn't always a good thing. And having this look behind the scenes is intriguing, but can also be very disturbing at times. The actors are pretty good and if you are into filmmaking or have a liking for it, than some situations will bring a smile on your face. But unfortunately there should be more to a movie.

The ending is rather good, but then again you have to watch the whole movie to experience that. It's not a bad "trip", but it is not something that many people will enjoy/endure (is my guess).
