I watched this movie because of the score of 9.5 on IMDb. As a Greek living in Turkey, the rating of this movie is rather misleading. For a movie with an unknown director who has some films in the above 9.5, one should think twice. Yes, the film is good. The cinematography, the direction, the music - there are many reasons why this film will not bring you over the border, but, the actor who plays Rabin is pretty weak and it is a shame that the movie doesn't bring over the Greek audience. When you watch this film, just think what do you need from the movie, because it can be summed up in one word - it's not true.

I just saw this movie last night. It had a nice portrayal of the battles between the Jewish and Arab states. I was not sure what to expect after watching this movie and just came away with a feeling of "wow". I also heard that the film was offensive to some people, but I really think that it was good and did not need to be pointed out. I understand that the real Tzipora, the mother of Samson and Aaron, is not on the screen for long and does not get much of the screen time, but I think that the acting was very good, especially if you view the film in the time frame in which the movie was made. The real tearful scene between Samson and his father is a great scene, and really pulls you into the story. Also, there is a part of the story that is touching and touching, even though it is kind of forced to see. Overall, it was a good movie to watch, if you are a Christian, Arab, Jew, or any religious beliefs. It just has a touch of "feel good" that makes it for me a good movie.

The film is about the battle between the Nazis and the Jews in 1943. Many people consider this a history lesson because the battle took place during WWII. When it comes to the filming, this film was made back in the late 80s. The production was about the conflict between the Jewish people and the Nazi's. The film actually looks authentic because it takes place in Europe in the 80s. The filming was made using reenactors and even some famous soldiers. The war scenes were not as realistic as I would have liked but still the film was interesting to watch. I don't think it is a great film, but it is a well made film. There is some cursing in the film but the cursing wasn't as bad as I expected. I rate this film 7/10.

In this film the King dies at the age of ninety. The other members of the council are asked to come up with an heir. The eldest of the four sons is the most entitled and so he becomes King. To be born royal is one of the few good things in his life. He spends a lot of his time killing people, personally. He is completely unbalanced in his personality and cannot be trusted. The youngest brother (the de facto heir) is made to be the King's personal bodyguard. When he leaves the palace the second eldest son, the son of the king, finds him and kills him. It is clear that the new King is unbalanced. He can't be trusted. He constantly kills people who threaten him. It is obvious that he is going to rule the country, but I wasn't very interested in the plot. I liked the way this film tells its story.

I have always been a fan of Orwell's fiction and his other works. Unfortunately, I know very little about him, except that he is more well known as the creator of the novel 1984. I was very excited to see Rabin, the Last Day (RTC), as I'm a big fan of John Hurt, but not his acting. So I was a bit disappointed by it. John Hurt is brilliant and does an amazing job at playing the role of Rabin. However, I felt that this film was too long, probably too long for what it is. The film is about what would happen if a society learned to accept a rule change that is basically the equivalent of a totalitarianism. The film is a little over two hours, and I don't think it would have been a fairytale if the film was a little shorter. The film is very well made, with good cinematography and use of angles. The cinematography really helped me to suspend my disbelief, and really helps to give the film a more believable feel. The actors did an amazing job, especially with the major roles. Miranda Otto, who played Queen Havel, was great, and I really loved her character. I felt that she was fantastic. Her performance was fantastic. The two other actors who played Rabin, Fares Fares, and Fani Altobany, were also great. They were, for the most part, really good. However, I really enjoyed Fani Altobany. She was great, and gave a really great performance. She was really good. This is probably because I was involved with the film during production. I had already gotten a ticket for the special screening of the film at the theater where I work, and I didn't even know what the film was. I really enjoyed the film. It was great. I really loved this film and I think the actors did an amazing job. Overall, I think Rabin, the Last Day is a great film. The film is very well done and the acting is great. If you want a good film that's very good, this is the one to see.

There's a great film here.This is a story about how our history, myths and the principles that have been taught in every country were unfulfilled and the genocide of the Jews was tragic and tragic, yet not tragic enough.This film will forever be one of my all time favorites.

I found this film to be a great work of art. The dialogue was fantastic, the acting was outstanding, the score was great, the direction was exceptional and the overall storyline was well-done. I also liked that the main character had a side part in this film. I can say this movie was really touching and I appreciated the fact that they didn't just rely on religion to describe the war in this film. In this movie, you saw the basic things that were happening in the last days of Rabin's life, but there was no one character who did all of the talking for the sake of it. I also really enjoyed that there was no single person that was leading Rabin's life on the last day. You saw how every day, you saw him walk around in agony with one or two little parties about his condition. Even the music in this film was great. It's important to look at this film with an open mind and not judge it based on what you already know about the "Rabin story". I recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a great and powerful movie. Also, I encourage everyone who wants to understand and relate to the story to watch this movie. I would highly recommend this film to people who are just starting out in film studies or just need to gain a better understanding of Rabin's life.

There's this wonderful Irish Catholic-themed film that makes the most out of being a fictional (and ultimately fictitious) film. It's an interesting but quite difficult movie, because in the long run the viewer will almost certainly find it redundant. But I found this a very fun movie that is worth watching, especially if you liked 'Carrie' or 'My Left Foot'.

The movie was not very accurate of what actually happened. They probably did not capture the entire conversation between Samuel T.LAte & "John T." At times I felt they were trying to hard to be funny. Not that it's a bad thing, I am just saying this movie could have been better as a play. When Samuel T. was the one who signed the document "Ten Years," one of the CSA workers who was murdered says, "He signed it. He signed it." In Samuel's case this would have been a problem in the movie. They tried to put Samuel T.LAte into the film, but they probably needed some other actors to fill the shoes that Samuel T. would have. He was such a smart guy and such a good actor. The CSA was portrayed as a lot more evil and abusive than the real thing. The "Lincoln" that came out the next year was an excellent movie. They did a good job with the script, but some of the dialogue was corny and the direction was so perfect, that it was hard to tell where it came from and where it was going. So I guess the movie was good for some people, but I think it was a little overrated. I would have to rate it higher than a 6, but then again, I wouldn't be giving it a 6, but a 7. Overall, this is a good movie, but I wouldn't give it a 9.

It's a very low budget movie that has not much drama or action. I really enjoyed it because I'm a follower of Israeli history and since it has been taken from real events, I'm really shocked by how this movie has been made. It's very true that what happened in 1940 was very sad and I could understand the political climate during that period, but I don't think this movie is aimed to be like "The Passion of the Christ". In fact, the main character made a decision that we can criticize him for, but it's not too strong. This movie is set in 1940 and the "ten days" of the first intifada that lasted from July 12,80 to July 21,80. The movie has a great style. Everything in the movie is very authentic, especially the music, including the events and quotes from the film. Everything in the movie is very good. The movie is based on a true story that can be a good source of information for anyone who is interested in World War II. I think this movie is a must see for anyone who is interested in World War II and Israeli history.

After reading an article in The New York Times about the film "The Rabbi," I decided to get a copy of the film and go to see it. I went to see it in a theater in Chicago, and after seeing it, I just can't shake the feeling that the film, though a beautiful and a thought-provoking film, is pretty much a whitewash of Rabin's final days and why he did what he did. Is it true? Is it supposed to be? I haven't the slightest clue. The critics were wrong, and the movie was definitely not "pure" or "whitewash." As a Zionist myself, I can't help but be mad that the film tries to pander to the Palestinian viewpoint on the Rabin assassination, and doesn't just present an accurate account of what happened, but it attempts to make the entire affair into a history lesson. It's a great film, but it's not a true story, it's just an interpretation. It may be wrong, but it's not wrong. I highly recommend it, but don't go see it expecting the truth. It's an amazing film, but it's not a true story.

The arrival of the Spanish conquistadors back to Spain opens a window into the world of early Christian Spain and the coming of Christ. The movie is narrated by the title character, a historian, who makes a dramatic argument in a battle that takes place in a valley, the Alhambra. The battle is one of the biggest battles of the Christian conquistadors. It is truly an epic battle. And as a historian, I am interested in knowing what happened on that day. I have read some of the historical books and at some point in the story the narrator makes a big argument about the probability of the idea that Christ died in battle. It is one of those occasions where I was convinced that the historian is right. As a historical movie, it is very good. There are many great battle sequences that are shown. I didn't see the battle sequences that much in the movie itself. Some of them was just in the trailer. And I still can't figure out what happened in the battles. But it was well acted. My favorite scene was when the narrator did his argument about the probability of that battle. And the camera was really focused on the angle and everything. I don't know if this would be considered the best movie of this type. But it is very good. And I recommend it to anyone who is a history buff. And I think that you should watch it.

I loved this movie. I loved the book. I didn't want it to be more than what it was. It's an amazing, amazing story, set in a time and place of humanity's darkest moments. I loved it. The first hour and a half is intense, it starts slow but quickly picks up. The acting is superb. The final hour. well, I'm a little off topic but I'm a little off topic.

I like movies that take you into the area of life we live in and the danger we face and especially when that danger comes from inside the house. I remember when I was a child and my parents got some scary news that their house was about to be sold to a real estate group. At the time I was really scared and I knew we would be moving to a new house with a new family that I never had, and that they would be moving to another house across the street. I had a lot of experience with this type of change. I always felt that a living situation was very special, and I think this movie gives you that same feeling. The film tells you that the beginning of your life is all important and it takes a lot of pain to get to the top. The movie also gives you a couple of quick ideas of how to handle the fear of the change and move on with your life. I like movies that make you think about life and you learn a lot about it. I can say that this movie had great messages and I really enjoyed watching it.

The Last Day is based on the 1925 Ceausescu's Muresan Conspiracy Trial, which convicted him of high treason and rebellion against the Soviet government. After being taken to the trial, he was paraded through the streets to the music of French leader Jean Moulin. The conviction was later overturned in 1946 by the Communist government of Lenin's New Economic Policy and death sentence was meted out. But the song "Strictly Together" by the band The Mules remains his only legacy. On October 31, 1959, Soviet dictator Joseph Stalin executed the man he called "the last stage of the Great Man", Ceausescu. After Ceausescu's execution, all political parties, and even his close friend and ally, Nikita Khrushchev, denounced the murder and demanded his unconditional release. A case was filed and Ceausescu was moved from a Romanian prison to an adjacent American embassy in Warsaw. As the last Soviet leader, he remained behind bars until 1989. The Last Day is a slightly dramatized account of his fate. I was prepared for a rather run-of-the-mill, 'gotcha' prison drama, but this was not the case. I was mostly interested in the prison life and the existence of his fellow prisoners. I wasn't bored with the story. The film actually portrays the Cultural Revolution as being a moving and horrible time, when the old were replaced by the young, and the old began to refer to those around them as "skulls". Most of the film's images are in black and white, which did not bother me, since I can easily adapt to black and white. As I said, this is a fairly run-of-the-mill, 'gotcha' prison drama, and it would be best to not let it deter you from a visit to this film.

This movie is far better than most Hollywood movies of the time it was released, and much more appropriate to its subject matter. Few have ever seen it, but many will remember the film as a great movie that brings out a good and uncomfortable truth about the fall of the Soviet empire. It is a good choice for those who remember the East Berlin years. It is not politically correct or accurate, but if you don't take the facts about the fall of the Soviet empire into consideration it can be an interesting watch.

I won't give away anything about the story, as I had hoped it would be enough for me. What I will say is that this movie is a must-see for all people who believe in God and wish to make a better world. I also recommend it to people who would like to learn about the great works of Jesus Christ and who would like to have a Bible lesson before embarking on their lives. I also recommend it to people who are interested in doing the Bible part, especially to those who have no knowledge of the Bible. If you're one of those, this movie is probably not for you. Also, I wouldn't even recommend that you watch it at night, as it is somewhat difficult to see what is going on at night, particularly in the middle of the night, especially when you are traveling. I usually watch it with the lights out, but when I was in a church with several people watching it, it seemed as if I was even getting kind of dizzy. I like all the actors, and I thought that the actors performed well, especially the ones who played Jesus and Paul. I also enjoyed it overall, though it was a little bit long. I rate this movie 7 out of 10 stars.

Ventura works hard to make us believe that he is truly in the same boat as the actors in this story. Of course, I could have done without the A-list stars, but even without them, the film stands on its own as an excellent piece of work. True, the film is not perfect. There is a certain moment in the film, when Ventura's beautiful wife shows up at the White House and turns her back to the other world. This moment in the film is what makes the film, if not more than the movie. The best of the bunch is directed by a guy who is capable of doing far better work than I have ever seen in my life. Maybe the best performance was Vincent Raima as his and Ventura's son. This is a film that should not be overlooked. If you have the chance, watch the film.

I'm not saying this film is the best film ever, far from it. It has a very beautiful cinematography, it is very gritty but it is well made and will appeal to many. I agree with others who say that the storyline is a little far fetched, but is still well handled and beautifully shot. The performances are great. I think it is the most original movie I've seen in years, and I hope that it will be nominated for several Oscar Awards, which is always a pleasant surprise for me. The only reason it didn't get nominated was that it was over 2 hours long. I'm really looking forward to seeing the film again when it comes out on DVD in January of 2000. It's a shame that it won't make a profit on DVD, because it deserves to be seen.

When I saw the trailers for this movie I was expecting the typical low budgeted movie with the typical effects but what I saw was something a bit different. And something that surprised me was the strong imagery that reminded me of "The Emperor's New Clothes" in the sense that this movie had a strong and very real sense of historical truth. I was also happy that the movie had strong, consistent characters, who kept me guessing as to what would happen next and I was actually shocked that the movie took place in the 1940's. I will say that the cast did a great job, except for this one particular actor who made the movie more confusing. But I have to say that for the most part the acting was superb, and this is where the movie actually excels. Overall I would give this movie a rating of 7.5/10 because while it is not for everyone, I can honestly say that I enjoyed the movie enough to make me wait until it came out on DVD. I definitely think that this movie is worth seeing, however I would have to say that the ending was a little disappointing.

It's a nice-looking and visually stunning film. The sets are wonderful, the costumes are authentic and the soundtrack is very "John Williams". However, the plot is quite unbelievable (in the traditional sense), since the Holocaust was a very deep issue for Jews, who could not choose between getting killed or killing themselves. I believe that if I were Jewish, I wouldn't have put myself in this situation, since I would have tried to stop killing people who wanted to kill me, at least not as long as they are alive. Nowadays, there are many anti-Semites among the American population, so it's not a surprise that this film is being created. The solution is almost laughable: the Jewish police can shoot some non-Jewish (but seemingly innocent) "terrorists" (with a gun, you see) and get rid of them easily. Therefore, the solution is: there will be a law against anti-Semitism, and the Jewry will get rid of the problem. However, this is completely ridiculous. Many Jews were arrested for their right to speech and assembly, and many still are, and the Jews will be the ones the police will be able to shoot in self-defense, since they are "terrorists" anyway. The Jewish police only chase "terrorists" and not all of the time, who is that Jew who uses a car to run from the police. And then, what does that movie remind us of? What does it remind us of? Germany in the 1940s. Nazis in the old days killed millions of Jews, so they got rid of the problem, didn't they? In the beginning of the film, there is the Jewish officer - the character of Althea Solberg - who is asking the questions of her fellow officers. After the shooting, Althea immediately announces that the incident was a "lone gunman". This seems very odd to me. Would a German officer like Althea Solberg say that it was a "lone gunman"? Since most of the Jews in the movie died in the gas chambers. So, one person in the movie was responsible for killing millions of Jews. Now, to the acting. There is a great actor in the movie. Sam Neill is probably the best. His emotions are realistic, and his acting is convincing. There are many great American actors and actresses (Stallone, Pitt, Freeman) in the movie. The story is well-done, and the actors and actresses do a good job. However, the plot is unrealistic and the characters are a bit too easy to believe. The whole movie is taking place in one long scene, but the time just flies. The end of the movie is not at all believable. There were many details that were left out of the story, so it could have been a better movie. Nevertheless, it's still a good movie to watch with your friends.

Although the characters are interesting and the story is intriguing, the plot is not completely convincing. The documentary style makes the story look more real than the historical reality. The movie also takes a while to develop a rhythm. The main character, Peres, has been a prisoner of war for three years and he is a prisoner of conscience. He wanted to remain a prisoner because he loved his country and he had served his country. He was an officer in the war, but he has lost his beloved wife and children. He also has a brother in a hostile country. The movie includes interviews with family members and former captors, which add to the drama. However, I do not think the movie is brilliant. It is not the history and the psychological problems that I find most interesting, but rather the struggle of Peres against his conscience. He wanted to remain a prisoner, but was just defending his country. I also do not find this movie inspiring. I give it an average rating.

That "Is it a coincidence that "A Few Good Men" was released two years after "The Last Day"? I'm starting to think this might be true.
