Funny and insightful look at life behind the cameras
24 December 2013 | by Sirfaro11See all my reviews

This movie chronicles the typical story of a bit player, how important ( and ironically , unimportant) an ekstra is. Loida plays the lead role, a single mother who successfully raised her daughter through acting in the movies, but has no luck after years of playing small roles, but has certainly gained wisdom.

The movie is a funny, insightful look on what goes behind the camera. Jeffrey Jeturian certainly knows how to make n audience laugh, without trying too hard and with his realistic portrayal of a typical life of his main character. You feel how life is difficult but the ekstras love their job, and that is how they survive.

Get treated as well with many cameos from both networks and an additional commentary on showbiz backstabbing. They say nice things in front of the stars but say the opposite behind the back.
