That looks really good. I tried to get it from Netflix, but they don't have it yet - it went on my "saved" queue.

I had a great time watching this movie. The little guy vs corruption, plus a love story... will he overcome? Will he win the lady's heart?

Spoiler Alert
 
I was shocked when little Hadji -- I know that's not his name, but I remember it from Johnny Quest cartoons I used to watch as a kid -- I was shocked when the boy jumped down into the "you-know-what" in order to meet the superstar guy. Knowing what he went through to get the autographed picture made it really, really disturbing when the evil twin -- I know he wasn't a twin but, again, I am on this Saturday-morning cartoon kick -- it was so disturbing when the other boy stole and sold the picture.

You had someone willing to go through almost any hardship to get something highly valued, and you had someone willing to violate rights and trample over others for nothing other than a quick buck. It was such a well-displayed contrast of virtue and vice.
