This film features extraordinary funny actors and an interesting way of representing reality
I like this film because it features the Kellerdirk bros., a famous pair of comedians back in the fifties. The acting is as good as could possibly be expected of the funniest men in the country. The extraordinary joins forces with the familiar and brings this film to a metaphysical plane, where you get an entire new perspective on the world.
