I beleive this film should be given a prod tag. It does not meet notability requirements of WP:NOTFLLM and should be nominated for deletion. Barton Foley (talk) 16:54, 12 September 2008 (UTC)

Expansion[edit]

The plot is way too short and needs to be expanded. Also more information needs to be added to the production section with samples of reviews on the film by notable critics.--Paleface Jack (talk) 23:14, 25 June 2014 (UTC)
