Great dialogs, great actors, a great little movie....
12 August 1999 | by darknigh-2See all my reviews

When a movie lover like me is watching a movie like this one, his heart becomes happy, really happy. The characters love movies, they are talking seriously about them, with some respectuous words. I hope that the director of this one will going far in her career because she has a lot of talent.
