One of the best films of the year. The film focuses on the dark side of real life. The art of acting is presented. The truth is not always pleasant but at least you know. It's funny how fast the film actually gets to the end but it's really worth watching. The actors were great. Everyone on screen seemed to be genuine in their portrayal of the characters. There was a lot of originality to the film. Most films aren't this good. The ending was also well done. It didn't take the film down. It made it more interesting. The film also had a lot of action and a great plot. The film was also highly creative. It's rare that I see a film that has something original to offer but this film is definitely one of those films. It was great for me, it was great for me and it was a lot of fun to watch.

Nicolai Sennels is a very talented director and writer. He directed the fantastic film Utopia and the marvelous film WALL-E. It's good to see a film with a point of view. A must see.

This movie is one of the very few Hollywood pictures that is not part of the major franchise of Universal. The movie is a great example of an American story that depicts the struggles of a worker, a menial, impoverished, and slave in the deep poverty of Cuba. In the story, a man called Wilfredo, (Mickey Rourke) is a carpenter, and in the film, he is, how can we say, "a man of few words" (I am thinking of Paul Simon as that voice of the man in the movie.) In addition to the main story line, the film portrays the hypocrisy of the US government, where "freedom" is the same in different countries, in a country where not everyone is equal in society. The film was nominated the Oscars for Best Film, Supporting Actress, Best Picture, and Best Original Screenplay. Overall, an excellent film. 9.5/10.

The Danish actor Brigitte Nielsen had also previously made a movie with the same title, Lillian in the forest, and also an adaptation of the same name. Here, Lillian (1917 - 1984) is younger sister of her late brother Emilie and their mother Maria (1922 - 1962). Maria decides to relocate to the rural village of Loona, where she will take care of the neglected Lilie and get ready to marry her. But her husband Sergi von Klemensrud (1921 - ) gets restless and goes off with his friends to the capital city of Moscow. That's where they meet the family of three siblings, all married to different men, whose children can't find them a new home. Eventually they decide to take care of the first one, at which point they come to know that their mother Maria is the brother of Sergi von Klemensrud, who has married a new woman, Mariusa of the royal family. The married Emilie is a retired Nazi officer, and the new Lilie is the daughter of the newly married Toni (1895 - ). Because Lilie's mother Maria is suspected of having a secret relationship with her husband Sergi von Klemensrud, she will try to make all the people in the village to accuse her of having an affair with him. Based on the novel by Oliver Arsenius, "Lillian in the Forest" is a delightful film with good performances and some superb moments in the middle of the film. The first two hours of the film are beautifully shot with excellent locations in the Swedish countryside and several picturesque scenes of nature. However, the main events take place in the middle of the film. Although they are first in a remote and remote village, the action takes place in a city of Moscow and many of the scenes are shown on a big screen. The tension of the film gradually builds up towards the climax of the film and you feel the longing for a small happy ending for the entire movie. This is a really important film for the female characters. They are first portrayed as characters that are very weak and even stupid, but later on we see that they are mothers with strong personalities. We also see that the strongest female character is the one with the most strength in her strength. The film is not a comedy, but it is a film that shows us that a woman can be strong, very strong. One of the greatest moments in the film is when the young Lilie goes to go visit the little girls that the family had left behind. She finds a little boy in the car that she gets help from. This little boy has a very interesting personality. He tells Lilie that she should take care of the children, but she doesn't listen to him. The two then go to the house and find a little girl. The young Lilie takes care of the little girl, but she is not really fond of her and no one can help the little girl when

I saw this movie in its "modernized" version for the first time on March 11th, 2000. For those who have not seen this movie, I have a few quick words to say about the story: it is one of the most ingenious, and beautiful movies I have seen in the last ten years. Although the story has nothing to do with the "Golden Age of cinema," there are many things which make the film so different from the other films of the genre. For starters, there are no stars in this film. The film is produced by new company, "The Collectors." None of the stars are "stars." To make matters even more bizarre, the stars were not even actors who have been nominated for some awards. All of them were real people in their hometown, with no history of appearing in a Hollywood movie. They are all used in the film to give the filmmakers a few minutes in the world of professional thieves. And, yes, they even do it in Italian. All of them are native Italian speaking, even though the story was written in the American style. One of the most important things to make the movie so special is that there is absolutely no musical score. The music is not "music." The music was not "music." The music was pure adrenaline pumping adrenaline, and I can tell you it's very addictive. There is also no voice-over narration. I can tell you that I am usually very critical of movies, and that they almost never have narration. But this is one of the exceptions, because everything you see on screen is spoken directly to the viewers. The film also does not have a voice-over narrator in it. The narration is the only way for the viewer to learn about the movie. And the narration is not an ego-filled narrator, but a normal man with a solid voice, narrating to a man sitting in a row in front of him. It's amazing. The story is not the most interesting thing about the film, because it's not a huge idea. The story is a simple question: "If you owned a land that could be sold for a billion dollars, would you give it away to someone who has the chance to sell it for a billion dollars?" The actors do a great job, giving the viewers an experience which is so real. You can tell that these people really want to be in the film, because they act in the way they act. I can assure you that you will be able to understand the motivation and the feelings of all the characters. Some of the actors are not as experienced, like Bartolucci, but he was in an earlier film, "L'Atalante." I believe that Bartolucci was the best actor in that film. He is also very well known for his performances in "Saving Private Ryan" and "Saving Private Ryan 2." I think that he is very talented. He is also a great young actor, very talented, although he didn't win

An action packed film full of passion and heart. Brought to you by Chris Hemsworth, who you might recognize from his work in Thor and Doctor Strange, but does a more serious role here as the title character. Hemsworth gives a truly terrific performance here, as he embodies all the emotions that he was given in the role. Thor: The Dark World is a well crafted film that will leave you wishing you were in Thor's place. You will laugh, you will cry, and most of all, you will be moved by the story and its message.

I saw the movie for the first time in 1971, only a year before my first and last job at a local theater. It was the first time I saw a movie in two years that wasn't a Hollywood movie and I was over the moon. This was just a fun, fast-paced, easygoing kind of movie that got the most out of what it had. I didn't realize how beautiful the setting was until I saw the movie again (if you don't mind me asking). One thing that brought the story home for me was how the characters changed. I can't think of any other movie that has done that. Each character evolved so much throughout the movie. I have watched the movie many times since then, and have had the opportunity to see it again in 1972, just as I watched it for the first time. I was aware of the story going in, but I didn't have a lot of expectations before the movie started. I thought the cast was great and the movie is still good, still great. I really don't think there is anything wrong with the movie. It's the story that doesn't hold up. The other one to mention is that I really didn't see the stars changing in the movie, until it was about 2/3 of the way through. That's just the part that isn't for me. This is a great movie to watch on a Saturday night or when it's cold outside and the air conditioning is still on.

I think that all the other movies said that Irene is "a woman who is loved by an entire village", and that wasn't true! She was just a refugee from a war and a dying world. The story was about Irene's character. It's not just about her, but about the others as well. Also the fact that her, the wives and all the other villagers were just alive, having just been saved from destruction and you know, "the apocalypse" is also a great idea. The ending was not a special moment, but it was a very good ending. The actors and the camera work were also brilliant. The film also gave us great heartwarming moments, such as the funeral and the walking in the rain. Overall a very good movie.

John Huston made a wonderful period piece, as he did in the 1930s. But what makes this film great is that we actually do get to see him in the 1930s. In this film, he is shown with only a few titles on his sleeve. He seems very different than we are used to seeing him, and it shows in his performance. There is no singing here, just narration, which to me was very appropriate. This film shows the difficulties of the job, and we get to see how Huston kept a balance between the work and the personal life. If the film had been edited a little shorter, the story would have been much better.

I am from Poland and I had the opportunity to see this film at the Theatres in the USA. The director is Robert Lipsyte and this is his second film and the first for 2016. The story is about the depression of WWII. After the war, the concentration camp in Auschwitz is destroyed and the people are moved to the other death camps. The main character is Aron (played by Danny Huston). He works at the level of a window cleaner. He has the opportunity to work in the old death camp but he is not pleased with the conditions. He is ashamed of his job and doesn't want to do it. He gets used to the idea of working for the death camp and his whole life goes backwards. The Nazi hunter Orson Welles (played by Philip Seymour Hoffman) arrives in Auschwitz and wants to interview Aron. He wants to talk to him and to find out if he knows anything about the other death camps. He asks him if he is afraid. The door locks and Orson comes in. I must say that this is a brilliant film. The cinematography is very good and well-done and the sound is very good. I think this film is very similar to Gus Van Sant's 'The Perfect Storm'. This film had the feeling of a documentary about the life of a person. I think it is a very good film and I recommend it to anyone who likes films about the Holocaust. It is a drama and it shows the lives of people who survived the war and they lived in a horrible way. I think this is a good film and I recommend it.

While I agree that not all films are for all tastes, I must say that the presence of "Rain Man" on my top 10 film list is a bit of a travesty. The film had a tremendous impact on me when I was a kid and I always enjoyed the quirkiness of "The Wiz". I don't think there's any reason to create a composite scene when the two films are so different in style. I love "The Wiz" and the clever and inventive humor of "The Rain Man". The imagery is far more elaborate, even though the film is one-joke and short. There's something about the style of the film that makes it all the more appealing. It seems like every scene has something to say. It's a shame that the similarities between the two films are so great. "The Rain Man" is a beautifully done film, but the story is almost far too simplistic to make it work. What the film has going for it is the marvelous cast, the real life-like environments, and the wonderful characters. But all this doesn't outweigh the fact that the storyline is weak. While I enjoyed "The Rain Man", I think that the movie is just a bit too simple and simple-minded. While the film is certainly an important social statement, the social commentary can be overdone. Yes, there are several images and situations that are very important and profound, but the point of the movie is not to demonstrate social commentary but to entertain the audience. If you don't like "The Rain Man", then you just aren't going to like "The Wiz". I also thought that Dustin Hoffman's performance in "The Rain Man" was very underwhelming, but he's such a talented actor that I'm not surprised at all. So when it comes down to it, I have to say that "The Rain Man" is a great film, but I just don't think it's quite as good as "The Wiz".

A beautiful film about growing up and dealing with the pain of the transition to adulthood. The script is intelligent and very well written, yet it never veers away from the film's main plot. The acting is superb. The story is well paced and very believable. The actors not only convince the audience, they actually appear to know that they are acting. The script and direction are superb. The cinematography is also exceptional, giving a more realistic feel to the movie. The directing was done by the director's brother and I love how he has mixed a bit of family drama with good old fashion fun. The love story was very well done. The child actors had an excellent and rich acting range and well played out. In the end I was quite happy that this movie had the cast that it did and was able to convince me to see it. The movie was very very sad but I felt for the characters in the end. I am not one who has difficulty getting into a story but this film was so much more enjoyable for me. All the performances were outstanding and I would suggest it to anyone who wants a great film about growing up and being accepted in a new and unfamiliar place.

This is the first time I have ever given this much points in a film. It is very well-written and it takes place in London at the time. The casting of the children was an inspired move and made the film better for everyone. The young actors made the movie more believable. There are some absolutely wonderful and true-to-life scenes that evoke a nice feeling when the film ends. There were a few unpleasant parts. Especially the scary bits. But overall the movie is more-so than the 'Moonrise Kingdom' or 'Grown Ups'. It is very adult and at times very violent. The story is very clear and you can easily follow it and follow the story. The movie has a wonderful pace that goes along nicely. It is a good one to watch on a cold day.

From the trailer you would think the movie was like a fairy tale but its very different. Its about 2 girls who stay in their grandparents house in a small town which has been abandoned for 40 years. It is the story of a girl named Melba who has lost her dad and has no one to turn to. But after meeting her grandparents they have no words for her. Her grandmother dies, the family disappears and her life is a lonely one. The name of the movie is "Celia" which means princess in Spanish. The movie was filmed in Spain and also on the north coast of France and The film was named after the town where it was filmed. "Celia" is a dark dark film and I don't know how the movie can get any better. Its a well made movie and I think its a really good one and I would recommend it.

This is one of the most saddest movies I have ever seen. I mean, at first I wasn't even sure if the movie would be this sad, but I guess if you get to know people like that, the movie may be good. I feel bad for the people who were forced to watch this movie, because the script is very poorly written and the acting is not convincing. This movie has many scenes that are a lot better then what was shown on the screen. I will always remember that scene where Zachary was being sold into slavery and there were people crying in the background, and that was the moment that I felt that this movie was not complete. The script is nothing special, and there is no coherent dialogue at all. The acting is also very poor, and I just felt like watching a movie I had already seen, rather then actually spending any money to watch it. I can't say that I know what the movie was about, but I do know that I felt depressed throughout the whole movie. The main reason I think this movie is so sad is because this is the most tragic thing that I have ever seen on screen. The only thing that I can say is that I felt for Zachary just like the people that were forced to watch this movie, and that is why I love this movie.

Greetings again from the darkness. I know that there are a lot of people out there who are in need of a break from the fast-paced, self-absorbed Hollywood buzz, or who want to sit back and take a look at something different. That being said, this is a great film and deserves a re-watch, especially when you consider the context. Certainly the directing and cinematography are great, the acting excellent, and the overall feel and vibe is all right in this film. Also, the topic of early-20th Century slavery in the US is a fascinating and important one, and the fact that the film covers this interesting period without becoming too heavy-handed or heavy-handed in its discussions of the issue does wonders for the film. When you look at these factors, the film definitely earns it's 9 out of 10 stars. So as always, I urge you to check this film out. It is also worth mentioning that the cinematography and writing are both quite excellent. There is certainly a lack of foreshadowing, and there are a lot of questions I would like to have been asked, but also a lot of beautiful photography and cinematography. Finally, the script is smart, engaging, and most of all, powerful. It is a film that I would strongly recommend, but that is not saying much. So if you are a person who wants to see something different, then go see it. If you are a person who is in need of some uplifting films, check this film out. I gave it an 8/10.

This movie has been doing the rounds for a while and it is an excellent film. It's premise is quite serious. Think, indeed, about the problems of the 1910s, the difference between the classes and the difference between the future and the past. What would they do if they had some sort of "Superman" power? The future, though, was going to be run by the rich and the poor, the powerful and the powerless. In a way the rich guy is the one who is going to go down in history as the Superman. However, this is also a society where the women are forced into subordinate status. If this sort of society has to be explained to us, then maybe the future will be explained in the only way that would be humanly possible - with a super-strength. The development of the Superman is something that we never really thought about. We have a sort of superhero hero who defeats all his opponents in a day or two and we know from this that he is superhuman. This is something that we have in science fiction films. This film takes this idea further and instead of a super-strength, we have the super-women. The movie goes a step further and shows us the dangers of this society. In a way, the film is a social commentary on the world that exists today, but it is also an excellent film and I think that it should be seen by everyone.

It's hard to be surprised when a classic film comes back on screen. The sublime beauty of this film will always be in your mind, and the reminder of its great cinematic legacy will always be a joy to see. If you like films about the so-called human condition, then you'll probably like this. If you're looking for an Oscar worthy, or a story that is challenging, or even for entertainment, or for any reason at all, you might not. But it is still an experience to remember.

The romance between Elizabeth (Rooney Mara) and Stucky (Elizabeth Olsen) is very touching and loving. There's a great sense of family and connectedness to this story. It's a shame that it's not on the big screen. Instead, they made the excellent BBC mini-series about it. I loved watching it, and I'd love to see the film. It's the type of film that could be made on a large scale, but it would be totally missing that magic that makes it so magical. It's hard to say whether the makers of this film and its companion mini-series should have made one or the other. If you have an opportunity, it's worth it to go out and see it, though it's only for a few hours.

I personally thought it was a good movie, it was better then most movies today. I think the idea was good but didn't meet the quality for the movie. But it had it's moments and good acting. I liked the actors and actors and actresses but the story was not well put in the movie and didn't understand that was was only a movie. The writer and director are good but the director didn't was good enough to finish the movie and the other actors and actresses weren't good enough to be good. If the movie was made with more of the directors and writers money and effort then i believe it would be a good movie and the writer and director will be a better movie maker. They need to show more of the scene and make it good.

I'll be brief here. This film is made in a straight forward way, at a pace that takes in the pace of the film without the need to jump into flashback. However, this is also one of the reasons I appreciate the film so much. Because of this I will not go into the details of the plot because I do not want to spoil the experience. What I do want to emphasize is the casting of a mixed cast and a good amount of humor. I thought Maximus was a good character, but this character was not over-done, and he was one of the few who was not over-the-top. His character was so self-conscious he looked like he was about to crack up. I also thought Theodora was fantastic. She had such a strong personality that I had difficulty to understand how she was the queen's servant. In the end I thought the cast was great and the comedy was great as well. I give this film 8/10. It was very well done and had me completely engaged. I highly recommend this film to anyone who enjoys epic tales of heroism, or who is looking for a movie to watch over and over again.

This is such an amazing film. At first i thought this movie would be a boring adaptation of the novel, however, the real story of this movie is that everything about this movie is true. That is the true meaning of this movie. It is about a mother who has lost her son and decides to go back to his birth village to be reunited with her son. While going back the mother's daughter takes her from her. So, while a child is born to the village, the mother goes to the village to find her son. This is the story of a true story, the scenes in the village and the mother's journey are taken from real life. I absolutely love this movie, the story is just so real and authentic, it is totally the best thing about the movie. This movie is really touching and brings you to a place where you really feel connected to this woman's daughter, this place is so real and I would recommend this movie to anyone who loved or will love a good movie.
