A very well photographed picture, but to see such raw and simple plot, which does not include a minimal surprise is not amusing after all, it's a waste of time. Avoid this one, if you want to be entertained wholly. Only suitable for cutting and screen studies, in addition it will not be difficult to conceive a better screenplay. One of the most lousy variations of the "Bonnie&Clyde"-theme
