Really top movie
13 November 2011 | by Captain_HaddickSee all my reviews

Was a great movie, I really felt that I was actually there in the scenes of the film. It really draws you in.

Really provided a great insight into what it must have been like living in Albania under communism. Many very funny moments in the film, and you could really emphasise with the characters in what they were experiencing and the emotions they were feeling.

Plenty of breasts.

Only thing is that my wife said that some of the acting seemed a little bit strange, but overall, very good.

Would recommend to anyone.
