This is an unusual and very artistic film. Not for the fact that it is the third installment in a horror genre. It is for the fact that it is a coming of age story about a young African American girl growing up in a white suburb of Baltimore. There is a lot of love and many sacrifices in this film. The film is full of symbolism, which are beautifully portrayed on the screen. The music is very eerie, and haunting. The film is never about the actual story of the film. It is a coming of age story about the struggles of growing up in America and the human need for companionship. The film ends on a very sad note. Although I don't think this is a film you will see on the big screen, it should be seen on DVD or VHS. The film is a very short, but a beautiful and haunting film that makes you think about the world we live in. My vote for the best black horror movie of the year.

This film tells the story of the French in South Africa during the second world war. The French were there in the early days of the country and were part of the liberation movement. They are told the story of their struggle. The liberation movement was a sort of alliance between the French and the Boers. During the liberation, they would go to the American camps for food and many French are American POWs. The French take a special pride in this film. It shows how a French person is different than a German. They are all part of the same people.

One of the best films I've seen in a long time. You don't get many films like this and I think it's probably just because of the type of film that it is. However, it is a beautiful film with a fantastic performance by Bruno Ganz and an ending that is unexpected and beautiful. Bruno Ganz's performance is incredible. He truly shows his character. Benicio Del Toro is also great in this film as the love interest. I don't really want to go into much about the film because I'm sure you can already tell the plot. It is a film that deserves to be seen and once again, I recommend you see it. The film is very well acted and well directed. A rare treat for a movie and I hope to see more from the director of this film.

Of all the movies I've seen, this is one of the most intelligent and relevant. The story is about an American family living in Russia. The main character is the only black person in the family and the father of the family is an ex-cop who is dating an American woman. The father had a little bit of difficulty being a father to a black kid but he's willing to take his son for a walk in the woods to help him be a better father. The family is struggling and eventually they leave Russia to a small town in Canada. There is a story of a car crash that was all over the news and so the father decides to take his son to the accident site and get his son to write a book. The father is initially suspicious of his son and the man he'd met before the crash doesn't seem like a good father but he takes his son to the accident site and starts helping the father. As the father begins to help the man, the father discovers that the man is very sick and so he decides to help the man. As the father helps the man, the father starts to understand what his son is going through. Eventually, the father decides to stay with the man and the son starts to help the man with his recovery. Eventually, the father starts to help the man more and more and the man starts to help him. Eventually, the man decides to become a better father to his son and the father realizes that his son could be his own father. I liked this movie because it's very timely and it shows the difficulties the modern family is going through in the world today. It is very realistic and it has an effective message. It also makes you think about the racial situation and what you would do if you had a black son. It was very insightful and it is definitely one of the best films of the year.

i was on a very high level when i first saw this film. after the second viewing, it became more difficult to understand what was happening. there were a lot of unanswered questions, not really satisfactorily explained. maybe that is what the director was trying to say. "Bacalaureat" is really a good movie, but it was not as i expected it to be. i would recommend it to anyone who has a taste for extremely intense cinema. more of a style, than a story. it is also a movie about secrets, about death, about friendship. i highly recommend it to anyone who wants to see an excellent thriller, who is very much involved in the movie, who loves mystery. sorry, i cannot give you more of this movie. but i can say that it is a superb film. i think that you will appreciate it if you have a very strong taste for intrigue, mystery, and a strong intellect. after seeing it, you may be confused, or you may come to understand, and you may think, that the movie was very good. which is really the best way to appreciate it. i recommend it to everybody who has not seen it, and to everybody who has seen it. it is really a must see for anyone.

Here's another one of those movies that doesn't work as much as you'd think, but, well, it's a good movie nonetheless. The main character in this movie is a South African gangster known as "The Cockerel". He's a very smooth talker and he does some impressive business with other guys. The trouble starts when he meets a gang of white street gangsters that want to kill him. The story is about three groups of men that want to kill one another. The main focus of the movie is what happens when the main character loses his job, his girlfriend, his girlfriend's friends and his friends' girlfriend. The movie isn't all that great. The way it was filmed was very poor. I don't want to go on about the poor camera work, but it made the movie very difficult to watch. I'll admit that I'm not the biggest fan of movies where the main character seems to be an immortal and the whole movie is shot in the same way. That can be a bit irritating. However, the characters are OK and the main character is pretty good. I don't think he'll be popular with the younger generation. I'll admit that the movie is very violent, but it's pretty tame compared to other movies of this type. I don't know if it was because of the budget or if they didn't have the money to spend on more expensive filming equipment. However, the violence is not overdone and it's realistic. All the violence that there is is done without blood. There's some very violent scenes where some people get shot. However, they are not graphic. There's a scene in the movie where a guy gets his foot cut off by a hatchet and it was very graphic and I can't say the same for the rest of the movie. There is one other scene that is extremely graphic and that was in the scene with the guy that get's his head cut off. I can't go on about that because I don't want to give it away. The movie is pretty enjoyable. The main character is likable and the movie is good. I would recommend it. It's not a great movie, but it's still pretty good.

Based on a novel by Alice Munro, this feature film was a timely, satisfying, if less than stunning film of manners. The movie is an indictment of the political system in Canada, a diatribe that focuses on the human cost of the war in Afghanistan, the transfer of power from the elected government to the private sector, and the reckless greed of the top brass. Tony Osmond (Kathleen Wilhoite) is a neurosurgeon who was elected to the House of Commons in 1997, but was recalled to Afghanistan for a full two years. At first, he will take the easy way out, but once he realizes the military is intent on taking control, he knows it's not going to be as simple as that. As the military's "partners" in the country's reconstruction, the Canadian and American military "officers" have a vested interest in keeping the war going. As a result, their actions have consequences that are not confined to Afghanistan but affect Canada, the United States, and the world as a whole. The movie is shot largely in Kandahar province, and the characters, particularly Osmond, are drawn to a bizarre situation, largely by necessity. On one hand, Osmond is seen as the rare politician who really cares about the suffering of his countrymen. On the other hand, he's the leader of the Canadian and American military, and they want him to stay put, because, if they don't, they'll be liable for military actions that will be seen by the general public as unspeakable atrocities. Most of the characters, including Wilhoite's, are flawed and hard to like. In fact, most of the characters are impossible to like, and, in the end, are determined to destroy Osmond, and their co-conspirators. Although the movie is intended to be a diatribe against political parties and the people in power, it is also a well-crafted, insightful, and ultimately satisfying look at the ethical decisions that can be made in this situation. (I'd not rate it higher, but I would have to give it an 8.0.) The movie manages to have one of the most stimulating and entertaining plot lines in recent memory, and it's important for the viewer to understand and take responsibility for what happens. (I'll leave the interpretation to you.)

I came to see this film with high expectations, as I had heard good things about it. As a long time fan of Francis Ford Coppola, I was also expecting great things. I must say that I was a little disappointed, but I am a firm believer that great films are often overlooked. This is one of those films. It was one of the most disturbing films I have ever seen, and it was certainly a film that the two main characters, and the audience, could not take. It is by far one of the most intense films I have ever seen. It is more or less a true statement, because the film certainly makes you feel things that are not your normal experiences. In my opinion, you are never left in doubt. It is about these two men, whose life has been put on the line. They do whatever they can to not see these things. Eventually, they take a step that should never have happened. The story was amazing, the acting superb, and it is just a shame that the great people in Hollywood are not trying to bring some kind of justice to the screen. This film is one of the most important films of the last 10 years, and it is going to be one of the most important films of the next decade. It is a truly great film, a true art film, and a really very important film. It is a film that you will want to see again, and again, and again. I would definitely recommend this film to anybody that needs some good entertainment. It is definitely not for the faint of heart.

I recently read a book about the French resistance, which was an experience for me, because it exposed me to many things that I never knew about the resistance, such as how many Jews were killed, how many Jews were tortured, and how important this war was for France. That said, there were also things that I did not understand, such as the time of the deportation of Jews from France, and the lengths to which the resistance went to get information about the evacuation of the ghetto. However, after reading the book, I finally understood a lot about the French resistance and what it was like, and I found this movie to be a very interesting film, with a great performance by Dustin Hoffman, a beautiful actress who could almost replace all the roles in the film, and the outstanding music score, which I have not heard before. But, what really attracted me to this movie was the way the resistance was portrayed, and the way it was portrayed, and I think that it is a very good movie.

This is not your usual trashy movie, this movie really goes beyond the typical trashy movie expectations. This movie tells you something you didn't know before. Something that you can't even fathom is what you are seeing. I personally love the movie so much and really hope you will too. I won't tell you what to expect but just go see it and try to see it the way you've never seen it before.

Is this movie one of the best movies of the year ? Certainly I can't say, because I have watched a lot of movies, but I think it is a good one.I think this movie is a movie about youth, about the life.And the way of life, the pain, the anger, the love, the revenge and the triumph. A really good movie, very good for the French language.And yes, I agree with the critic that this movie has a great camera-work, and the most important thing for a good movie is that the director and the writer can make the audience feel the movie.And with this movie, they can do it.

I've been trying to get hold of this movie for the past year and I finally caught up with it at the video store. It is something I will watch whenever the temptation arises. It is the story of a young man named Peter, who has lost his mother in an accident that takes her life. A couple of years later, he is a very successful journalist and wants to become a playwright, but his wife wants him to stay at home with their son. The father, who is also a writer, is more than willing to let him stay, but he is not too happy about it, and decides that he will leave. Peter agrees to leave, but decides to stay with his wife, who wants him to stay, and it is more than that. They want to bring his play to the stage, but the theater is being run by people who are not interested in the play, they are interested in a film that they will get for free. The younger son is helping them out, and with his help, they make some improvements. They get a new playwright, but the older son knows it is not going to work out as they had hoped. Peter is finally aware that the father is leaving him, and now it is up to him to not only make the theater work, but also find a way to get the story on the stage. As I watched the film, I noticed something about it. I noticed that the film makers were not only focused on telling the story of the book, but also told the story of the movie. I noticed that they had two story lines: the play and the film. I noticed that the film makers made sure to put in a lot of subtlety and detail, and the play makers made sure to take care of everything in the film. The film makers used everything that was in the book, and were very careful to include all of the scenes from the book. The play makers had to put in a lot of details that were not in the book, but they made them very clear. They did this in a way that made sure that they were the main characters. I also noticed that they were very careful to make sure that the cast of the film was that of the play. The play is a play that was written by one of the play writers, and the film makers were able to make sure that the actors were in sync with each other. I noticed that the directors were also very careful with their focus on the actors and the script, not on the

Last night I saw the movie "Bacalaureat", starring Lukas Haas and Madhur Mittal. It was an incredibly tough movie to watch because the suspense was built up extremely well, you wanted to know what would happen and to be prepared. If you enjoyed other films by the same director "The Bridge on the River Kwai", you will love this one as well. However, I had to give the credit to Madhur Mittal. He made the movie a masterpiece. There are a couple of times I would have preferred to turn it off and not have been surprised at the result of the movie, but I was sure that it would not be so. Lukas Haas and Madhur Mittal are one of my favorite actors of the century. They have a similar presence to David Lean and Vincente Minnelli. The chemistry between these two actors was amazing, and I loved watching them interact throughout the movie. I never want to see the story of this movie repeated and this is exactly why I wanted to see this movie. The director should be congratulated for his success in making a classic movie and making it very well received. Bravo to him!

Its no different from "Nosferatu" or "Black Sunday" with Dracula. I'm not even a fan of horror films. I am a writer and I read so many book to film adaptations that I just know the story by heart. When I saw this on TV and saw Dracula with the blonde haired beauty and her beautiful French accent I had to pick up a book and study the character. Yes, I knew Dracula was going to be like that but now I really love it. This was an excellent adaptation. I enjoyed the way Dracula was brought to life by the fantastic music. I enjoyed the music too but the scenes with the weird cats were so wonderful and I don't even remember seeing them before. I read the book and I do like the book but I do like this film even better. I loved the use of shadows and the way the characters move around with their eyes open. I love the way this movie was filmed and I love the beautiful music. I will be seeing it again.

I really liked this film. It is a gritty depiction of a tiny province in Africa and the local culture. It is not a sophisticated film. But it is very realistic and very realistic people do what they have to do. I was pleased with the fact that the film shows the situation in a much more understandable way. I also liked the political realism of the film. I can watch a lot of political documentaries and never get angry about the political government's behavior. But in this film the people really behave like real people and there is a lot of emotion involved and I can feel for them. And because of that the movie has an effect on me. I also liked the lead actor. He is very good and he deserves an Oscar for this film. I also like the way the director uses this directorial technique to bring out some powerful emotions. I liked it very much. I also recommend this film to anyone who likes African films or if you like movies about Africa.

I am at a loss to find words to describe the best films I have ever seen. Without going to boring or rambling about a film, I will say that this film is an absolute masterclass in cinematic expression, from the first frame to the last. Absolutely superb. All I have to say is that this film is one of the best ever made. The director brilliantly brings the visual storytelling into the audience's hands, and the combination of art direction and editing is beyond comparison. The film shows us the essential morality of the war in one scene, and then we discover that we can not separate the two elements of war in another, and finally in yet another scene, a mere scene. The film is truly a mind bender. An absolute masterpiece. A complete and utter masterpiece. A masterpiece and a lifetime achievement.

Bacalaureat is a fascinating and truly special film. I love movies about the deep pockets of criminals, and I always try to find some. But I never could find a good one that was made by the same director. This movie is a very good one. The performances are simply amazing. I love how the film is filmed. It is very realistic, and it is extremely well shot. It is not a lot of action, but it does not seem to be. It is a very serious movie, but in a way that makes you really feel like you are in the movie. It also is very good looking. I don't understand how they have a low rating. I think they should have been more generous in their rating. The acting was great. I can not think of any actors who were not at least very good in their roles. My only other complaint is that I found the ending rather confusing. There are so many details in the movie, but there is no real reason for the ending to be as it is. If you like to see a movie that is worth watching, then watch this movie. It is very rare and very good.

This is the best film that I have seen in quite a long time. I don't think I've seen a film which touches as many human emotions as this film does. The plot was very interesting, the characters very well drawn. The performances were excellent, and the music, which was a huge part of the film, was beautiful. The picture was beautiful, the background score was perfect. I'm not going to tell you what the plot was because it's not necessary, but I did want to talk about the ending. I think it was the best ending that I have ever seen in my life. I was stunned. It is very powerful and has such a great impact on your emotions. I don't think that there has ever been a film which has made me so emotionally involved. I am so happy that I saw it. I believe that I will see it again soon.

I have seen this movie for the first time on Netflix and I'm going to see it again in the future. I was a bit skeptical when I first heard of this movie after reading the "box" it came in. It seems that no one actually reads reviews to movies before watching them but I'm glad to say that "Sehnsucht" had me hooked. As soon as the movie started I knew I had to see it because I was interested in this story. It took me over 2 hours to get through the first 40 minutes of the movie and then I was in "oh my God I want to keep watching this movie" mode. Now that I've watched the entire thing I can tell you that I was right. This movie was nothing like I expected it to be. It is a drama and at the same time it is a comedy. It is interesting to see this story unfold because it is based on a true story. The cast is awesome and the story is interesting and entertaining. There are scenes and scenes that will make you laugh and there are scenes that will make you cry. I will not say any more about the plot because I want you to see the movie for yourself. The movie shows you how the mafia operates and it shows how the family of a mafia boss (played by Horst Buchholz) went about trying to save their leader. The cast did a great job and the performances are spot on. You can't go wrong with this movie and I recommend it to anyone.

I found this film not so unusual or unusual. If you like crime, this is for you. If you like crime and movies like the Sopranos, this is for you. The director does an excellent job at creating a mood and world of emotion, and the screenplay is superb. The crime world is represented with well placed music, and the dialogue is extremely well done. The film is one of those rare films that can hold the interest for the whole length. The opening scene is so well shot and composed, that it is hard to believe that you are watching a movie. The camera angles are perfect. I cannot think of a scene in which the film should be criticized. The only thing that the film could have been better at is a better story. The film is very dark, but I am sure that if you can bear it, the end is worth it.

Bacalaureat is an excellent film, it is a great insight into life in Africa, with people who you could easily be connected with in your own family. This movie has everything a person needs to be a part of a journey - honesty, humor, sadness, romance, and problems. The cast is wonderful, but the movie is a perfect example of how the local people are really like everyone else. It is a beautiful, inspiring story and a moving one to boot. The way it is told and the way it is played out is very beautiful, and the emotions are beautifully portrayed by the whole cast. The film is very well done and the film maker has put a lot of passion into the making of this film. I give this film a 10/10!
