I watched this movie last week on a lecture course in philosophy. It was great. It's not for everybody but I thought that everyone would like this movie. I thought it was great that it showed not only the world of fiction but also the world of reality. The movie is very different from reality but it shows what happens in reality and what happens in fiction. One thing I liked about the movie is that it doesn't really explain the point of view of the characters and doesn't give a full answer but it does give some ideas of why they're doing what they do. All of the characters were really likable and you can relate to them. I recommend this movie.

I just got back from seeing Julieta. It is one of those movies where you are immediately drawn to it. I could not believe how good it is. It starts out as a thriller and ends up being a romantic drama. It is a very impressive and unique movie. I was definitely riveted from the very beginning. I could not get enough of it. I want to see it again. The performances were great, and the casting was perfect. The movie is visually beautiful. I am a movie critic, so this movie impressed me, and I was not disappointed. I highly recommend this movie. If you are a lover of dark and mysterious movies, you will love this one.

This film is an excellent mystery/murder film that will keep you wondering until the very end. But one thing keeps coming up in my mind, and that is the main character, Julieta, and how her life changed after she had her baby. My favorite part is the conversation about "life changing" events, that my wife and I had together. I didn't want to leave the theater until she got all of the meanings out of the film! Overall, I highly recommend this film!

A young Italian woman, often troubled by nightmares about an abusive boyfriend, finds an older man in her attic. Before long she learns his name is Claudius (the English title of this film) and he is a wealthy playboy and sadist. She begins to fall for him and the intense sex they share fills her with such passionate feelings that she starts having them herself. Eventually, though, she learns that Claudius is in fact a witch and that she may be dead already. Could a woman as beautiful and intelligent as Julieta ever fall for such a twisted character? The short answer is yes. The film is truly beautiful. The costumes are fabulous, the photography is wonderful and the actors are superb. Lucia Serrazzo, who is truly one of the finest actresses in the world, gives her best performance to date in this film. I have seen many versions of this film and the version I saw was by Luca Greco and has this film's star listed as Lucinda. Greco also directed this film, and I will see the other version once it comes out. I think Greco did a better job here than he did with his other film, S.W.A.T. The direction in this film is great. It was directed by a director I like. Vittorio Storaro is one of the best directors working today. I know he was not only a great director, but he also is one of the best television directors. His films are always well made, with lots of detail. If you see this film, I think you will agree with me that the photography, costumes, sound and direction in this film is everything you would expect from a great Italian film. I think you will really enjoy this film, if you like movies. I saw this film at the Palm Springs Film Festival in the fall of 2001 and enjoyed it enormously. I think you will too.

I can't say enough about this movie. It really hit me in the gut and makes me ask myself: why do I care about anything else? Why do I want to be young again? What do I need to do to make it through the rest of my life? This movie has everything that I need: love, sex, melancholy, death, and grief. It's a little bit dark, but that is necessary, because it's important to watch, and I know that it's important to me. It's a little slow at times, but when you look at the end credits, you'll see that all the people who worked on this movie did a total on job. It's really a remarkable film and a very good movie. I'm glad that there are people who have the talent to make movies like this one. I can't wait to see this again. Thanks for reading my review.

As a scriptwriter, one would think that there would be one written in which one would use the anachronisms of the period to point out the real thoughts behind the dialogue. "Julieta" does this but in a way that is less sophisticated. It is not an anachronism, a blunder or an inadvertent typo. It is, instead, a stylistic choice. The film's production design and cinematography are different and add to its overall feel of grandeur. And, while this is not necessarily a bad thing, it does lend to the film's more refined feel. Some of the best moments in the film are the quiet moments, the moments when one is looking for their own self-expression. It is certainly worth a viewing for those who are interested in the creative process, but it is also worth seeing for those who wish to view a movie about something other than what has become of the "modern world".

The most remarkable thing about this movie, is that it takes place in the 1930's. I've been there and I have to say that this movie just doesn't give enough information on the time. This is why, this movie is pretty realistic and it shows that sometimes things do happen in a way that you couldn't expect. This is one of those movies that you should watch more than once. It's not perfect but it's certainly worth watching.

I was very impressed by the way the film dealt with the subject of love. This was a very mature film. While it did take some heavy talking, it was done in a very subtle manner and I enjoyed the fact that it was that way. The performances were very good. I found the cast to be very good and it gave the story an adult feel. I would definitely recommend it to anyone who likes a film that deals with adult themes and doesn't over-exaggerate. Julieta is a story about two people who find out that they are in love and try to keep their relationship secret from their families. The film is based on the book of the same name, which was written by Annie Proulx and was first published in 1967. The book was extremely popular and is still very popular and a great book to read.

I don't know what it is about this film that captivates me so, but somehow the movie did not irritate me. I know, some might say this is 'important' for Brazil to get back on track and this film is certainly that, but for me it was quite the opposite. There was no plot to my mind, it was just a film about people and life. The setting of the film was beautiful and the story flowed smoothly. The people were quite likable, the scene where Julieta's father is about to be executed and it goes from being a painful moment to a beautiful moment of peace and happiness. The scene where Julieta had the whole Brazil on her shoulder and then realizes how much she has missed her mother was quite moving. I also liked the portrayal of the movie, the story could have easily been condensed, but that didn't bother me at all. The acting was excellent, and the photography was pretty good. The movie itself was not great, but it is still a good movie to watch and to learn from.

I'm not sure why this film got such bad reviews. I agree with a lot of people that the main idea behind it was fantastic, and as others have mentioned, the story was brilliant, but I didn't feel like it had any plot or much story. It was very slow. It was confusing, and I didn't care what happened next. It was not entertaining, it just bored me. I think the main reason for it's poor reviews was the music. The songs were good, but there was nothing special about them, or interesting, or just catchy. There was a lot of good music in other movies, but here there was none. There was also a lot of music that was creepy or even sad. I didn't really like that. I think the best part of the movie was the end, it was spectacular, and the acting was good. I don't think this movie deserves all the bad reviews it got, I think it was an interesting film and I would recommend it to anyone, but I would definitely wait for it to come out on DVD, then I would definitely see it. If you like it, great, but it's not the best movie I've ever seen, I think I'll go see Man on Fire next.

This film, The Cardinal, was interesting and exciting. However, it wasn't all that good. The story of a woman's struggle to break free of her circumstances was intriguing. However, the story did not have much depth. I felt like the film wasn't nearly as good as the book. The screenplay was not that interesting, either. I understand why this film was so popular in the 1970s. I did not enjoy it. The film could have been a lot better. My biggest problem with this film is the soundtrack. The soundtrack was simply awful. I wanted to like this film, but I just did not. The soundtrack was very cheesy. The costumes, although quite good, were very bland. The film, however, was very atmospheric. The film was quite scary. The film's story was interesting and captivating. I enjoyed the film. It was very good.

I liked the movie very much. I was a little surprised of the reaction from people. I think most people will be disappointed. For me it was an excellent movie. I was also surprised that the critics did not give it the rating of a 10. I think if critics had a critical eye they would have liked this movie. I think some of the reviewers have given this movie bad ratings. But you have to realize the movies budget is very small so you cannot expect them to have an extensive script. So they are just using the money to shoot the movie. The director does not have the opportunity to make a huge cast. If they have the budget for a cast that would be worth watching. Some movies are made with small budget and they are great. This is not one of them. I think it is a good movie and it is better than the original movie.

I saw this movie about a year ago and I thought it was one of the best films I've ever seen. I was very surprised to see it listed as a "Drama." I can't tell you whether it's a true drama or not, but I can tell you that the storyline is good and you can follow the story very well. The acting in this movie was good, although, I thought there was less focus on each character. The main character of this film was very intriguing and I think that's what makes this film so good. If you are a lover of movies like "The Godfather," "Apocalypse Now," "The Godfather 2," or "On Golden Pond," this is a great movie to watch. If you are a person who likes more of a mystery movie and drama, it's not the best film that I've ever seen.

I was intrigued by the fact that a movie such as this is still in the making. I had no expectations and was pleasantly surprised. Not only was the film interesting, but the acting, cinematography and location was fantastic. A must see for any movie fan.

Erotic thrillers may not appeal to everyone, and sometimes even hard-core critics don't find them very compelling. The three lovers are Olivia DeJonge, who is a social climber, Abigail Breslin, who is a film student and the host of a sketch show, and Rosario Dawson, who is a streetwise reporter. They are both educated and gain their wealth from their passion for cinema, but are hardly wealthy themselves. Everything seems to be going very well for them until, at their favorite theater, they overhear a discussion about a film being shown about a young woman who is dying of cancer. When Olivia's boss, a young American, asks her to make a documentary on the film, the women become fascinated by the film, and make every effort to discover more about it. The personal lives of the two women are vastly different, but they are drawn into a romantic relationship that seems to be extremely possible. As they embark on their journey to discover the secrets to their love, they uncover more about the film than they bargained for. When the night comes for the women to discuss the film in their hotel room, they feel drawn back into a relationship that may be more than they bargained for. The film is captivating and well acted. I think that the film did well by adapting a novel into a film. The actors did a good job in their roles, and I would recommend this film to anyone who wants a film that isn't about money and a lot of sex.

Good. It's a good movie, I have to say. I was expecting more but not less. The story is simple. But at least it doesn't take you completely by surprise. It's a movie that keeps you guessing and interested. The performances are good. Except in the last couple of minutes, when the love between Julieta and Emmanuel gets broken. But that's not the most important thing, because it is what makes the movie so good. For me, there is not a single character in the whole movie that has more than one aspect that stands out. I'm not going to say more about that because I don't want to spoil the movie for you. But the film does leave you thinking and you might come back to it a week after. You might remember some details from it. The movie is not a traditional love story. It is not about what happens when you meet somebody else. It is about what happens when you meet somebody else.

Esteros is a great film. Although I agree with the first paragraph of that, this film is really about Esteros and it's main character, Aida, who is the only one who can communicate with her. She is pretty intense in this film, she is the only person who can keep out the murderers of her father. I also think the acting is really good, especially by Sam Rockwell who plays Aida. Aida's father is a general in a army that was sent to kill him and if he survives, he will be rewarded by the state. After the film is finished, you understand that he will never be able to make it in this world, he will never see his family again and he will become a slave. The movie is really about love and sacrifice and how difficult it is to be able to love and survive. The movie is really long and at the end, you will think "hmm that is all". There is a couple of funny scenes, but these are not very effective. I am not a big fan of Tilda Swinton, although I think that she was perfect in this film. The film is great but it's not really a masterpiece. I think you should watch it, if you can, I think you will enjoy this film.

As a long time fan of Sebastian Junger and for other reasons I was excited to see this film. It had an interesting setting, amazing cinematography and even a novel background story. The story was at times a bit thin, but overall I was engrossed and that's what a good movie is all about. The first few scenes did seem to drag on a bit and I was only getting started but it was worth it. The whole beginning, second act and last act of the film, I really liked. It was really well done and a lot of the most interesting parts were the locations. The film really moves in a slow way and the acting is excellent. The film was made in the Netherlands by a Dutch director and I can't wait to see what the future holds for the rest of the actors. I look forward to seeing more work from them. I can't wait for the sequel. It was pretty good but not great. Overall, this was a good film that definitely deserves more attention and praise.

Director James Mangold did it again. The film centers around the story of a woman named Julieta who is forced by the government to participate in the "human experiment" known as the Day of Silence. The Day of Silence was a silent protest on the eve of the Cold War. It was designed to rid the world of the Communist Party. Julieta is a nun at the order who has become infatuated with a young monk. She finds out that he is involved with an officer of the government, and he is involved in the Day of Silence. Julieta flees the country and eventually loses her faith in God. She and her husband have to bear the burden of the (late) disappearance of their daughter. She's forced to deal with all the things she was not sure were real. It was a good story and very moving. The cinematography was beautiful and the acting was solid. The film looks like a portrait of what it was trying to say, though it might be better to say "possible."

One of the best movies of the year. While many see it as a drama, I believe it is much more, especially the story of Julieta. A lot of people say she's just a guy, but that's just a romantic fantasy. She is much more than that. She was a woman who lived and died the way she lived, and was eventually reborn in the form of a woman. After her death, she wasn't reborn. She was reborn with her lover. When he died, she did not die. She was reborn in that form, and died in the process. That is why she looked younger. Her life is still beautiful to watch. Her beauty is in her body, her voice, her eyes, and her sensuality. I was a little bit disappointed by the ending of the movie, but it's understandable, because it's a little bit underwhelming. I love the way the story ends, it's very poetic and poetic. I don't think it was meant to be poetic, but I think it was beautiful. All in all, I think it's one of the best films of the year. Don't listen to the critics, watch it. It's a great movie, and I think the critics are trying to take it too seriously.
