This was neither romantic nor comedic...
8 April 2002 | by kathleen-1See all my reviews

I saw this film at the International Film Festival a few years ago. It made little sense. It was directionless. It had desire but no romance. And instead of comedy it had pathos. This film has the distinction of being one of the two worst films I've ever seen.
