Once every so often, that’s the category for this one. It’s a fun film that I just ‘get’ so for me I’d be happy to sit down and see it for the performances if not the oddity of the plot.

John can, and invariably does, put on the “excuse me, WHAT did you say?”  expression with ease and great timing and between him, Minne and Dan, the dialogue is as quick-fire as a round of bullets. Me likey this style for a semi-comedy like we have here and with the plot as quirky as it is, I’d easily say that those people who like something slightly-romantic but also dabbling with black humour, skirting comic violence then this is for you.

It’s also not dated particularly badly which is no mean feet.
