PK, an English orphan terrorized for his family's political beliefs in Africa, turns to his only friend, a kindly world-wise prisoner, Geel Piet.

As he grows to manhood, PK uses these words to take on the system and the injustices he sees around him - and finds that one person really can make a difference.

(ru) wrote: I will admit that Soledad Miranda was a beautiful looking woman. Plot: a woman watches an erotic lesbian show at some bar with her boyfriend (husband?) and can't get the lead girl out of her head. When she goes on a trip, she finds out that the lead actress of the lesbian show has bought and paid for her room. Then the seduction begins. This movie has bad camera work, bad acting, bad script and the lesbian scenes aren't worth your time. And I doubt anybody is an actual vampire in this one since they are all walking around in the middle of the day. It's a cross between art film and sleaze film and fails at being either.

(de) wrote: It is maybe true that Laura Linney and Philip Seymour Hoffman are two of the best actors of its generation (as critics say), and Linney has not an Oscar yet because she did not have the perfect role. It is maybe true that this story talks about the inside of the people. However, the problem is that, in this sad drama, you can know what is going to happen from the beginning: mid-life crisis, the drama of getting old, conflicts between parents and sons. So, not more than you expected in a hard movie, difficult to watch because of the though issue it talks about. If you do not care about that, it is OK for you, but maybe a little depressing until character which (all or them) are not white or black at all but are full of a dull, very realistic grey. Very correct soundtrack, even very good, I would say.
