      Audience Member Lousy production values, cheesy dialog, wooden actors, and an annoying voice-over narrator. Sounds like a recipe for disaster. It's so bad, it's good! This viewer went into this not expecting to finish it, based on the other user reviews on Netflix, but instead I stayed to the end. Maybe it was the story. Somehow despite all of the obstacles that might normally turn me off, the story of two sisters and their obsessive infatuation with their neighbor drew me in. The quiet, intense Jean (Gail Travers) and the earthy, free-spirited Collette (Macha Grenon) stalk and pursue the enigmatic Yoshi (Eiji Okuda) and finally get to live out their fantasy in a hotel room in Montreal. The fallout from that encounter fuels the drama of a family reunion weekend at their parents' house a few years later. The only recognizable face in the cast, Maury Chaykin, plays Cody, an old family friend and provides some comic relief. I can't say that I recommend it, but I certainly found it entertaining. No great, cathartic life-lessons, just a little bit of fluff. But, it turned out to be a sweet story and the two lovely young actresses held my interest for nearly two hours. A surprising 3 stars!
