Flicks Advisor (comments from our film promoters)

This is a complex comedy about modern life. There were few laughs out loud moments. The film had a slow start but picked up pace in the second half. The chaotic nightclub scenes were met with general hilarity and overall audience response was positive. A mysterious magical film which needs to be seen twice.
