In addition to making a collection of short films for the screen, a young, ambitious artist in Montreal, Claude Briere (Gregory Smith), has decided to create an entire feature film for adults, thus starting in the guise of a series of short films, which he calls "Six Days, Seven Nights" (as a play on the French verb "suisse", from the Latin "Sessio", to give), that will also be a theatrical play. The title is meant to evoke the drama and a "chase" that he intends to describe in the form of an old-fashioned "comedy" - but at least he is using the concept for a different reason. There is a very good sense of uneasiness in this, a very strange juxtaposition of the familiar and the unusual. (The first scene is, of course, a musical montage that is very strange indeed, in that the song from "You're Beautiful" is interspersed with other songs, while the first scene's music is the song "Kokai", by American singer Aimee Mann.) Two of the six scenes are originally by Philip Roth as a screenplay. The other is by Philip Morant (the writer of "The Passion of the Christ") as a scene by scene interview of a play. There is an obvious relationship between the two. The film is divided into two parts: The first is the ordinary life of a teenaged girl, Lena (Anya Taylor-Joy), that includes her pretty appearance, her sweet and kind-hearted mother, mother-in-law, and best friend. (This is a very famous girl group in Montreal.) The second is the adolescent drama, the core of the film. It is divided into six chapters: the first six are all just about Lena; the last six are all about her father, the actor, Gerard Depardieu. At least this is how the film was conceived. You have to know how the film was intended to be perceived and what the audience was expected to see. In that regard, the first half is almost as bad as the second half. There is a lot of stilted and unnatural acting (Meyers and Gosling are good, but they do not have the intensity as Depardieu's, and I think the one of the other two women is just too "natural"), which leaves the other actors little chance to shine, although I am not sure how it was supposed to be achieved. The characters are unrealistically odd and certainly not really believable, and it is not clear what is the purpose of a lot of the very strange things happening in Lena's life. It is also hard to believe that a girl this young and this innocent would

It seems like we're supposed to laugh when a man and a woman have sex but that's what happens in "The Verve" the 1973 French comedy film from Jean-Pierre Jeunet (the same director who brought us "The Illusionist" and "Catch-22"). "The Verve" is about two pen pals played by Andre Morell and Julie Delpy who are engaged to be married and have met on the stage, but their love is constantly thwarted because they have incompatible sexual orientations. But, like "The Illusionist," their story is far from formulaic and it is much more realistic than the usual Hollywood romance film. "The Verve" is not a perfect film, but it is a very interesting film about a topic rarely touched upon. It's also a little hard to find, but I suggest that you check it out. My rating: 8/10 Rated R for strong language and sexual content.

I have been looking for a film about those people who have a lot of affection and respect for the artist, the singer or the band. All these films which explore the human emotions are found within the framework of musical genres. In this film, which was directed by Michael Winterbottom, we are faced with the interaction between a person with a lot of respect and admiration for the artist and a person who cares more for the singer, rather than the artist. There are some lovely moments in the film which are very sincere and interesting to watch. The actor who played the first person in the film and who was portrayed by Sean Astin, did a great job and showed great passion and love for the character. Michael Sheen and Mark Harmon did an excellent job and came off as very genuine and credible. The most interesting element in the film was the one in which the couple have a meeting with the composer of the film, who was played by Tony Todd. The only actor who looked as if he was acting the part of the composer was Michael Sheen who did a great job and was convincing as the composer. There were some nice visual moments in the film, the first was when Tony Todd and Rachel Weisz had a quick shot of the septum when they were standing behind the piano in a private room. The other scene where the director used a lot of slow motion was when Mark Harmon played the piano to the music of his dream while sitting in the very same room where the star was sitting and looking at the empty table and bar. I do recommend this film. It is a very good film which is not only well directed and well acted, but has some very interesting scenes and moments. It is highly recommended.

I liked this movie. I am a great fan of science fiction, and I am not usually into suspense films. But I did like this film. A real heroine who could have been taken advantage of by a power hungry man.and all the other sides of the story with the authority figures that did not need to be in this film. That is why I rate it with a 9. But it did make me think a little. That is why I like it. It is a good film for teens to see, especially the young teen crowd. Good movie.

I am a fan of Andy Weir's books. The TV series was better than the book. But the movie was a mess. For the most part it was not the same movie. There were many elements from the book that were cut or changed in the movie. The bad was that there was no true closing scene from the book. It was too long and some of the scenes were too rushed. In the book the scene where Robert was saying goodbye to Jackie and then she left was a perfect example. The movie just did not capture that wonderful moment. However, the scenes that made me love Robert McKay as an actor were in the movie. I liked Robert's acting in this movie. The performance of all the cast members was excellent. I recommend this movie. I like the book very much. I like the movie. I just would have liked to have seen the book written down.

If you're a fan of the History Channel, this movie will bring out your inner Tim Burton. I found the film to be very funny. You'll find yourself getting a bit misty eyed. In terms of the acting, this movie is going to give you a few giggles, especially if you're a Tim Burton fan. The movie also has a real sense of wonderment, and emotion. I think this movie is a must-see for people who love a bit of The American History X, The Simpsons, or just plain good movies!

In a high-school romance with two perfect high school seniors, two ways of dealing with their parents' divorce becomes clear: the close friendship and its awkward silences, the tension between the two main characters, and the romance. When a director comes out of the hick-man type of films (Stanley Kubrick), he/she comes to make a film that won't be just a cute sweet, one-dimensional, love story. The one-dimensional films could have been better, but the creators also knew how to make a good drama. "Mermaids" is very good, a great drama, a lovely film, and a great film with a special message. I recommend it to everyone.

First I would like to say I've been a fan of Lee Pace for a long time. I loved the book I saw the movie (not the book) and I was really happy when they made the movie. I went into the movie with an open mind, and I came out amazed and with a whole new perspective on life. I was able to watch the movie knowing about all the plot details. The story is interesting and unique. It will grab you and keep you interested. The acting was great, especially Matt Damon. I thought the character played by Matt Damon was the best. He was truly believable and he did an amazing job. They also included a huge amount of references to Lee Pace's life and work. I really enjoyed the scene where Damon and Pace were at the grocery store. It really reminded me of the book. This is definitely one to watch. Also, I loved the one shot, so that was great. I definitely want to go back and watch the movie. I thought this was one of the best movies of all time, it was definitely not overrated.

This movie is a hybrid between Dances With Wolves, and The Dead Years. The characters are relatable, although I can't remember if the characters are from either film. The plot is believable. It does go over the top, but it's the only way that I could picture it happening in real life. However, it does get a little over the top at the end, but is still funny. I didn't think that this movie was all that great, but it was pretty decent. I think that if the movie would have stayed on the whole thing, it would have been better. Overall, I give this movie a 7/10.

I'm not a great fan of William Hurt or Robert De Niro, and I'm not a fan of Judy Davis either, but this is one of the better biopics I've seen. David Cronenberg's film is a sincere look at the effects of addiction on those around them. Hurt is a drug addict, De Niro a recovering addict, Davis is the friend who "helps" Hurt by giving him pills, and Mike Figgis is a recovering addict and a recovering family man. The themes in this film are even more relevant today than they were in the late 1970's. De Niro, in particular, is given a great performance. In fact, the only negative is that the film is very slow. If you like Robert De Niro, this is a must see.

BEST QUALITY MOVIE MADE IN AN EASTERN EUROPEAN COUNTRY (allegedly) THAT IN ANY WAY INVOLVES HUMAN BEING: WOLFGANG DER VAN DOR and THE FIGHTER, that one is my personal choice. This movie has a great score, the characters are pretty interesting and the story itself is pretty easy to understand. Actually I liked the beginning a lot, it just gave a sense that there is not much left to discover about life after death, as far as we can understand. All in all this is one of the best movie of the last years, I had a hard time with it, so I've decided to put my own assessment. And if I have to write a comment, I will say the same as the reviewer who wrote the last comment. I'm really surprised at the rating given to this movie, and if it was that low I would consider it a waste of time.

Vietnamese movies are typically very well made. Most of them are gangster movies. The characters are drawn in such a way that they are believable. It's not much different than how John Woo does his gangster movies. In my view, those gangster movies are a lot more enjoyable to watch than those starring Siamese twins. But Vietcong movies are great and I recommend it. I have seen most of the movies but don't want to give anything away. Don't be surprised if you have to pay attention during the first few minutes to understand the plot. But trust me, it's worth it.

A wonderful film. Based on the novel by Anne Carson, the film is about a middle-aged woman named Barbara, who, after a financial disaster, wants to escape her depressing and empty life by going on a cruise, a spiritual experience, and the pleasures of love and sex. Barbara meets a mysterious man who helps her out of her depressing routine. But she soon discovers that her new friend is not as she thought. I loved the film. It is well-crafted, touching, and honest. The acting is wonderful, as is the story. I highly recommend it.

I don't usually write reviews for movies I watch, but this one I felt compelled to write because I do not think I've ever seen a more enjoyable film for the entire duration. It is very rare that I feel like I can have a film so completely captivating me in such a manner. It is the best film I've seen this year and I doubt I will ever see another film like it again in my entire life. I don't think I can even express how amazing this film is. It is in every way unique, and in every way, the best film I've ever seen. That said, there are parts of the film that are disturbing and horrible and that makes it even more shocking. But, like I said, it's so worth it. I don't want to spoil the film for anyone, but I will say that the film is very disturbing in some parts. But, it is actually a little disturbing in the film itself. I've never written a review for a film before, but this one I feel compelled to do because I don't think I've ever seen anything like this. I have not read the book, but I will say that it is wonderful and I am curious as to how they would go with the book. I also found it very surprising that it was directed by Terrence Malick, who is known for his extreme films. I'm also surprised that this film was shot in black and white and then turned into color, but I guess that was what Malick wanted. The performances in this film are all excellent. Jeremy Irons and Ben Kingsley are incredible in their roles and both gave me so many emotions. In fact, the acting in this film is so good that the acting in every single scene is so good. These performances are so well put together that the acting in every single scene is so good that it's hard to believe it was not an actor in the film. I don't know why there are so many negative reviews about this film. I am so shocked that some people would say it's boring and over the top. I would encourage anyone to watch this film. It's absolutely incredible. I think this film should have an Oscar, and I think the Academy should make an exception for this film. It is the best film of the year and I can't say how I would recommend it. I don't think I could give it a 10, but I think I could give it a 9. That's a huge margin for a 10. I think that this film is a masterpiece and I will say it again. THE BEST FILM OF THE YEAR!

The thing I have to say about this film is that the characters were absolutely perfect. You get to know all the characters and they all add so much to the film. I think that for the most part you don't need to watch it again. It is really something special that you get a whole new look into the characters. I think I just had a new understanding of just how powerful their story was. This is a very funny movie and very touching, the story is just brilliant. I can see the film being really popular and everyone being excited to see it. This film has got to be a cult classic because of its story, the performances and how it all comes together in a really good film. 9.8/10

What a great film, well written, funny, and poignant. A great movie for everyone who likes a good story. I enjoyed it very much.

This film was really a lovely adaptation of the novel by Stephen King. The acting was fantastic and the story was very real. I will definitely be adding it to my personal collection. The other characters were great too. The movie had great cinematography and beautiful landscapes. I can't wait to watch it again!

This movie is about how people around the world have come to love and care about each other as one family, even if they are divided by different cultures. It's about the problems and pain that people go through, and how this relationship can help to heal them. It's about how people get hurt and how they can get healed. This movie is a story of survival and survival of the fittest. I highly recommend this film.

This is a very dark movie. While I have not seen all of Cabaret (at least the original one), I really liked this one. It is about the intimate relationship between two brothers, the pain they each feel, the fear they both feel, and how one endures through the other's fear, violence, and finally acceptance of them, while slowly turning him into a better person. There are some funny scenes, and I think it is a good story to watch together. The colors are very vivid and very striking, and the camera-work is very artistic. I would give this one an 8/10. But since I liked this one so much, I feel compelled to add that I would recommend this film to those who are looking for something a little different. If you are looking for a film that is a little darker, this one is for you.

This is the story of several families who decide to support each other after the death of a loved one. It is the story of three teenagers (two brothers and one sister) who have grown up together in an isolated house and have decided to build a new house together. The problem is, they are two different people. One is a drug addict who is struggling with the death of his mother. The other is a single parent who is a very caring person. What happens when these two guys meet each other? A simple friendship that quickly turns into a real friendship. The boys are determined to build a new house together and start the new life that they dreamed about. They take risks and eventually work together and it works out well. It is a well thought out story that really hit home and was even touching at times. I have never been in a situation where the brothers were fighting over a cup of coffee. All the drama is brought to the surface through the friendship. The brother who has been raised in the society is also open to new experiences and sometimes is very outgoing and loves spending time with other people. This was a very realistic story about a group of people who had to come together to build a new life. This is definitely one of the best movies I have seen in a long time. It has an emotional element to it and I can watch it over and over again.

On the back of the sleeve of the DVD we were told: 'Drink deeply. Be kind and be playful'. Yeah. I am a big fan of Soul, Faith and God. I have been a friend and an acquaintance of Mr. Drake for many years. He is a very caring and generous man. And as this film begins, there is a very touching scene of him surrounded by his staff at the clinic in Austin. I wonder if the staff were just listening to him. It's as if they were expecting him to give them his soul. He was doing a nice thing. But then, like a light switch was turned on, the staff started to break down, throwing food, books and any small objects that may have been left by the men in need. The man behind the scenes was like, 'That's it! You go, this is your time, there's nothing more to say'. That is what makes it so sad. The man was so kind and generous. The message was so meaningful. This film was very uplifting and a testimony of the inner strength of our Lord, Jesus Christ. This is what I had expected. This film is going to be a very good hit. If you are a fan of Soul, Faith and God, I can't see why not to see this film. It is an uplifting and a testimony of the inner strength of our Lord, Jesus Christ.

This is the film I was looking for when I saw the synopsis for it, yet this was a good thing, as the synopsis did not really give me much about this film. The main characters in the film are Tom, who does everything he can to live his life in a good way, and Joe, who is living a dream, as he works to improve his mental health and travel the world. The film is told in three segments, and the first part of the film tells of Tom and his life as a rich brat, while the second part is about Joe, and the third and final part is about both Tom and Joe. I thoroughly enjoyed this film. I liked the cast, the story, and the cinematography. It is hard to get a good movie out about mental health, but I believe this film was good. In a world where nothing is ever good enough for anything, it is amazing to see a film that portrays mental illness from the perspective of both Tom and Joe, and shows how each individual will go through the mental illnesses they go through. I do not want to give anything away, but I can tell you that this film does give you a lot of information about mental illness, and how mental illness can affect people's lives, both inside and outside of their home, and from outside of their home. The film was very well-made, as it had a very artistic feel, and it had a very nice story line, and the acting was great. Overall, this is a film I would recommend for people who are interested in mental health, as it really does show a very different angle on mental health, and the reasons for it, and how it can affect a person's life. 8/10

You may be surprised to find out this is actually a pretty good movie. It's not really an insult to people who like art-house films. It's a good movie about a real-life guy with some flaws. No one would ever expect a movie about a man with something going on in his head to be all fun and games, but it's a pretty accurate depiction of how someone who is emotionally challenged would react. And that's not to say it's a complete waste of time, it's actually pretty well made. For someone like me who was born in the 80's and grew up with a father who had a mental health disorder, this is definitely a movie that I could relate to. The characters are a bit cliche and the acting is a bit stilted, but the characters are likable, the story is believable and the overall feel of the movie is just good.

As a first time visitor to this site, I thought it would be a perfect film to recommend to a friend. It's nothing but the story of two girls and the struggles they go through to cope with the "truth". If you're into this sort of thing, you'll love this. But if you're not, just skip it. You won't be sorry.
