5.0 out of 5 stars
A breath of fresh air, 3 May 2001
I went to the cinema to see this film. I then imported the DVD because this film is so good.
No over inflated star egos to massage, no pop star commissioned to write an inappropriate pompous soundtrack. This film is the perfect antidote to all the bloated hollywood blockbusters.
A love story, pathos, comedy, incredible fight sequences, amazing special effects, lovely music, fantastic cinematography. I bore my friends and colleagues at work by raving about this film.
But don't watch this film expecting it to be "real". Just spend a couple of hours suspending your belief, dim the lights, draw the curtains and immerse yourself in it.
