Movie Reviews

Interesting Film!
G. Dewar | California | 01/30/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"This is a unique film, one that's more a surreal painting come to life than it is your standard American style boring film. It was featured at Cannes and the Tribeca film festival. It's definitely worth checking out, though, and the on-screen debut of model and photographer Velvet D'amour (NOT "THE VELVET UNDERGROUND" PLEASE GET THIS RIGHT, AMAZON!) who plays "Avida."

It is unfortunate that the original poster art wasn't used for the American DVD, but I suppose that's because we Americans get silly when it comes to any nudity. But it's still a great film and I can't wait to buy it on DVD."
