These Bulgarians might be nice to look at, but they have no depth - kind of like this movie. So I was entertained on the surface level, who needs depth anyway,

Garish, frenetic, but curiously dull...suffers from a serious case of the cutes, a disease that in this case proves fatal.

Won't leave you disappointed, but it may leave you hungry for something more substantial.

De la Iglesia's years of filmmaking experience are obvious in the film's formal touches.
