she looks like her father
28 November 2002 | by cinemazitSee all my reviews

I thought Chiara Mastroianni looked like her mother on the vhs cover. On film, she looks just like dad. There is no other reason to see this film. Her character, Claire, spends too much time ringing doorbells that don't get answered by half-baked passive characters stuck in a less than half-baked movie.
