User Reviews

 
Excellent comedy, truly original film, not 'just another movie'
8 March 2013 | by barb-627-568728See all my reviews

I truly enjoyed this movie. It has an original plot and it isn't over done. Juno Temple was wonderful, and although I'm not normally a film buff, I was so impressed with this film that I couldn't help but put a review in.

The plot was so unique, and included enough history that you really start to wonder...

A great dark comedy - it's not a stupid comedy, it can really make you think. How far would YOU go? What would YOU do if you had possession of the teapot? If a movie can make you think - actually think about what you'd do - it's a successful film, in my opinion.

Great film - great cast! This is one I'll purchase to keep in my home to watch again!
