Very Garbarski. Though-provoking concept that only works because of Faithfull's performance. It is weaker than the director probably thought it might be. Supporting a brilliant idea and good casting on a weak plot is a rookie move. Nevertheless, worth a watch. Definitely!
This film has given rise to the 'Irina Palm D'Or award' for worst film of any given year. How do you review it without resorting to puns. Down the pub it probably seemed an ok idea - something along the lines of Calender Girls/Shirley Valentine - a better actress could have made it great ... but in the hmm 'hands' of ms Faithfull ... well see for yourself ;-) ... At least there's a happy ending - ha! enough, stop me!
