| A real surprise
I hardly ever write about a movie but I recently saw this on satellite and didn't know what to expect. I was very pleasantly surprised and very happy I took the time to watch this movie. It is really an unusual gem that I truly enjoyed. For me it took some time to get involved into the whole idea of the movie, but once I did was totally hooked!

To be honest if I hadn't seen that Elijah Wood was in it I probably wouldn't have taken the time, but I do enjoy his acting and here his character is quite quirky and entertaining. For my money though, Eugene Hutz stole this movie and prior to this I had no clue who he was, a truly fine job of acting!

Hope you get the chance to enjoy!
