[Eva left acting class]
So when are you coming back to class?
It's a shame, little Eva. You're the only one I ever picked to make it. You got fucking talent, you know? You got a fucking gift.
Yeah, well, I got lots of gifts.
Yeah, I know...

Gangster farce about a group of mad theatrics trimmed with deep black humour
Underground director Amos Poe presents this Tarantino-esque gangster movie, which is also a close portrait of a woman trying to break free from her old life. All trimmed with some violence, black humour and loads of quotations from the world of theater and movies. (watched @ the world premier at the Filmfestspiele Berlin)
