"Many articles say American comedies don't do well abroad, unlike action films. Comedy is culturally-specific. I can relate now. This work was supposed to be funny, but I just wasn't feeling it.
At first, this reminded me of "Forest Gump" in that important world events coincided with events for the main character. But really this may be a Spanish "Amelie." The visuals, characters, and facial expressions will remind you of that film greatly.
The film has an important message that you never know what life is going to throw at you. However, the main character does two things here that are highly unethical. It's not really a laughing matter.
This work was hard for me to embrace, though I'm sure the makers had good intentions."
