I just saw this movie on DVD and it blew my mind. It's a wonderful movie. The acting is superb. The screenplay is great. The cinematography is outstanding. It is the most important thing in any movie. A great director (Olafur Darri Ólafsson) must have this. A great actor (Fargo's George Clooney) has it. A great writer (Gabriela Wolde) has it. A great director (Filmmaker Olafur Darri Ólafsson) has it. This movie is a masterpiece. It's one of the most important movies ever made. I loved it.

In the name of all that is holy and good.this movie is a real treat. I was skeptical at first, but, in the end, I was amazed that it was so much more than I thought it would be. It is a movie of a completely different style and style of humor than the typical comedy. This is a story about how a man and a woman try to live their lives and get by, despite all the challenges that come with it. I have to say, I thought it was an amazing movie and I'm going to watch it again and again. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who likes a movie that is full of humor, but is also great drama. The performances are great, the humor is great, and the story is very thought-provoking and thought-provoking. I hope you enjoy it as much as I did.

A film of this calibre will always leave a lasting impression on me, and for good reason: it is a true story. I can not say more about the subject of the film without giving too much away, and the ending of the film will leave you with the same impression I did. No matter how much it is changed for the better, the film still remains a powerful and honest tale. This is a film that is not to be missed. A film that should not be missed.

I have never seen such an excellent movie, an excellent script, an excellent directing, an excellent photography. It is the best movie I have ever seen. You cannot watch it without you being moved to tears, and you cannot forget it in a day. It is not a typical movie. It is a kind of an "Alice in Wonderland" in which you can see how life can be like. All the elements in this movie are in perfect balance, the people are really good actors, the locations are just perfect and the music is just perfect. I think that this movie is an example of how a movie should be made. And I will buy it on DVD.

I first saw this film at the age of 10, and after seeing it again I still remember every moment of the film, with each scene holding a particular meaning for me, the music is absolutely beautiful, the performances are incredible, the script is so haunting and it is a movie that you can watch over and over again. It is just one of the best movies of the year, I would recommend it to any one who wants to watch a truly beautiful film, or who is in the mood for a little bit of a drama, I can't imagine anyone else but Eva Mendes to play Anna López, and to be honest I wouldn't be surprised if she was the most beautiful woman in the world. I have to add though that the original music of the film is so beautiful and memorable that I will never forget it.

A beautiful film that is more than a film. The actors are all amazing and all get their just due. This is not an ordinary film, it's a masterpiece. I can't wait for this film to come out on DVD. The DVD will be a gift to my parents. I hope you enjoy this film as much as I did.

This is the first movie I've seen from the director of "Den of Thieves", "Saraband" and "Zahav", the Czechoslovakian crime drama series. The film is about the gangster lives and problems of a rich and ambitious gangster. The director of this film has chosen a powerful character, a man of a difficult position, who is from the beginning convinced that he is a good man. The best thing about this film is the way it is filmed. The cameraman of this film is probably the best Czech cameraman and he has captured a great atmosphere of Prague and the city of Prague. The film is a good script, has a good cast and a great acting from a great director. I think that this is the best movie from the Czech cinema, that I've seen in a long time. It is not easy to make a good movie, but this movie deserves to be seen. The movie is about the life of a gangster and a man of a difficult position, who is convinced that he is a good man.

This is a movie that is best viewed as an example of the challenges faced by the director, the actors and the audience. There is no cinematic device or technique that can be used to highlight the film's main theme, or to further the narrative. It is the story itself, and the director's unique use of that story as a frame for the rest of the film, that is the primary focus. I recommend this film to anyone who enjoys good storytelling, and a film that keeps your attention the entire time.

A beautifully acted, beautifully photographed film. One of the best of its genre. The director, the writer, the cinematographer and the entire crew should be given a standing ovation. I will never be able to watch a film this good again.

The first time I saw this movie, I was so disappointed that I thought it would be a cheap copy of the BBC's "Dr. Who". But the movie is so much better than that! It's so beautifully done, the music is so real and haunting, and the story is so touching. I can't wait for the DVD release. I'll definitely buy it. I can't wait to see it again. I will see it again!

The movie is amazing. It is well directed and beautifully filmed. The acting is very good, especially the three main characters (Difesa, Fidan and Sotir). They are very believable. Their interactions with each other and with the audience are very touching. The music of the movie is also very good. I have seen it a few times. The music is very beautiful and fits the scene very well. The characters are very strong and in my opinion, it is one of the best movies ever. I can't wait for the next one.

Ngozi Onyango is one of the best film makers in Africa. His films are really touching and his films are very realistic. I watched this film a while ago and it was a little bit hard to sit through. But after I finished it, I was like, "Wow! This is the best movie I've ever seen!" The film is about a young girl named Ngozi Onyango (Jennifer Ngozi Onyango) who has been raised by her parents until they are killed in a car accident. Ngozi is sent to a foster home where she's taught how to read and write. But when she gets older, she's confronted by the children in the foster home and she's forced to help them with their writing. But there is a problem with this. The children in the foster home are having an incestuous relationship with one another. But Ngozi is aware of this and is determined to help them. The acting in this movie is really great. The movie is very emotional. I can't describe how sad and depressing this movie is. The actors are really talented and they really make you feel this movie is real. This movie is really good. I give it 10 out of 10.

After I saw this movie I was shocked by the message it was sending. It was a beautiful movie, but the message it was sending was different. I think that the main message it was sending was that people should respect other people's rights and that we should try to do good in the world. I think that this movie is about people and how we should treat each other. It was a beautiful movie and I highly recommend it. It's a must see.

This is a very nice movie. It is a great character study, but also about the human condition. The characters are very well developed. The plot is more complicated than I expected, but it is actually simple. I had never heard of the concept of "tautology", but I found it to be very interesting. It gives the film a very complex and rich flavor. The cinematography is very nice. The music is also very good, and it fits the mood of the film. The actors do a great job. It is a very good movie, but I think it would have been much better if the director had made a film about the search for the truth, and not just the search for the love story. I think that would have given it a great depth. But I don't mind a movie about the search for the truth. It was a very good movie, and I recommend it.

This is the best movie I've seen in a long time. I think it is a masterpiece. It is a masterpiece that doesn't need a synopsis. The plot is very well developed, but not confusing. The acting is excellent, especially for a Hungarian movie. The music is beautiful, and the script is very well written. I don't understand why this movie is not as popular as the American version of it. It is very hard to find this movie, and I hope that it is soon released in the US.

This is the only movie I have ever seen with a full length director's cut, and that's all I can say. This film has the rare distinction of being a complete work of art. I saw this film many years ago when I was a child, and I loved it. But it's also a very mature film, with a very complex plot, and with wonderful acting, particularly from Hana Sermet. It's an all-around brilliant film that I will never forget, and recommend to anyone who wants to know about a film that is a work of art.

This film is a work of art. The dark, haunting, atmospheric, haunting atmosphere is perfect. The story is very compelling. The actors all give very good performances. The music, the cinematography, the art direction, the editing, the screenplay, the direction, the lighting, the photography, the sound, all are very good. The director and the cinematographer should get an Oscar for their work here. I give this film a 10/10.

As a Hungarian I could not stop myself from going to see this movie. The story is not very easy to understand, but it is beautiful, deep, full of love, mystery, and most of all, of hope. All the actors are great, especially Mihály Toth, the new female director. I have seen this movie 10 times and I still cannot get tired of it. You can not help but feel the love for this movie. It is a great movie and it should be seen by all the people in Hungary and the world. All the best to Mihály Toth and all the crew.

The film is a beautiful example of a director's ability to convey emotion and make the viewer feel the sadness and pain of a character's death. The film also conveys the meaning of a man's duty to his family. It is a rare film that is not over-dramatic and is a film that is not afraid to let the audience in on the dark side of human nature. The film is a great film for anyone who is a lover of the great actors. It is a must-see film for anyone who is a lover of cinema and who appreciates a good story.

I loved this movie and will definitely watch it again. I am so glad I watched it. It is a great movie that shows the real life situations of refugees. The story is very inspiring and gives a different view of the situation. I recommend this movie to everyone. It is a movie that is worth watching.

I read the reviews here and I wanted to see this movie as soon as possible. I was not disappointed. I was very impressed with the actors. It was one of those movies that you want to see again and again. I thought the director did a great job, the story was unique, it was unique because it was told from the perspective of a girl in prison and the actors did a fantastic job. It was not about a crime, it was about a girl who is in a horrible situation, and the movie shows the girl as a human being and not as a victim. It was very touching and inspirational. This is a movie that should be seen by all, even if you are not a "teenager" it is a movie that should be watched by everyone.

The film is a love letter to the work of Hungarian director Nima Nourizadeh. In the first part of the film, the director explains to the audience the ideas and the key points of the movie, while the second part, the director brings out the elements of the film. The film is an act of great courage, because it tells a story without a single cliche, without a single happy ending, without a single tragic outcome. The director presents a vision that is very important for Hungarian society, but also for the world. It shows that even in a society that is not supposed to be the most advanced in the world, there is a lot of material that is not yet invented. It shows that a society that is ready to reject the 'traditional' way of living is in a way already doomed to suffer from a lack of creativity. The director is not afraid to show that this lack of creativity is caused by the cultural system and that it can be overcome by the will of a group of people. The film is a very important work. It gives us the feeling that we live in a very fragile time, when a society needs to recover its strength, but at the same time it reminds us that it is not the fault of the people that the cultural system is not the best, but the fault of the people that the system is not the best. We need to realize that our world is fragile and that we will never be able to guarantee our future. But we have to face the fact that it is only a matter of time before it is destroyed.

I saw this movie on a Friday night in the summer of 2003, and it was one of the most emotionally moving experiences I have ever had in my life. There is no doubt that this movie was made for the audience's emotional depth, but it also should be viewed as a great piece of art that is a true testament to life and the human spirit. I have always loved the music of Icelandic composer Sigur Ros and am a fan of the band and I'm glad that I finally saw this movie. I can't express how much I loved this movie. I cried so hard during the entire movie. It was one of the most touching and beautiful movies I have ever seen. The entire cast was perfect for the roles they were given. It was also a great mix of comedy and drama, and I believe that was the director's intention. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone who is looking for a great film experience. I give it a perfect 10/10.

A stunning performance from Kusturica is the best thing about this film. I have never seen a film so beautiful as this one. The cinematography, the lighting, the costumes, the settings are all exquisite. The whole film is just stunning, like the images of a night sky or a dreary landscape. The cinematography of the film is one of the most beautiful I have ever seen. The images of the city of Budapest are breathtaking. The costumes are perfect and all of the characters are beautiful. The story is about a woman who is dying of cancer and wants to commit suicide. She takes a bottle of pills and drinks them, but the pills kill her. The film is about her struggle to live and to find her identity. The most beautiful thing about the film is that the story doesn't end. The story goes on and on. I can't believe that I haven't seen this film before. I had seen it before, but it was very brief. This is the first time I've seen it and I was absolutely blown away. This film is one of the most beautiful films I've ever seen. The cinematography is simply breathtaking and the acting is outstanding. Kusturica is so brilliant in this film. She is the one who shows how beautiful life is. Her performance is so amazing and she is the reason I am now a fan of Kusturica. She has been doing great work in her last few films. She's a very underrated actress and I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a great film.

I loved this movie. I've seen it twice and plan to see it a third time. It's one of the best movies I've seen in a long time. The acting is superb, the storyline is fascinating, the cinematography is breathtaking, the score is very effective, and the characters are portrayed with great sensitivity and love. A movie with a story that isn't very important but makes you want to live in a different world, a movie about how a person who does nothing but watch television and read magazines could be an amazing hero and how he has to deal with his life and his family. And for those who have doubts about how such a movie could be made: I'd recommend to watch it with a friend or in a family atmosphere. It's really well-done.

I am one of the few who have not seen this film before. And I have to say, it is one of the best Hungarian films I have ever seen. This film is based on the novel of the same name by Vassilis Karkanos, and the film is about a young man named Avigdor, who is not able to cope with the state of his life. He is forced to take a job to provide for his mother and sister, and to look after his father. On the other hand, he is married to an American girl, played by Allison Janney. The film is a drama that is full of sentiment, and of life and death. The film is extremely dark, with lots of tragic situations, but also with some funny moments. The acting is also great, and I believe that everyone in the film will be able to relate to it. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes the drama genre, and to anyone who enjoys a film that is very interesting.

It is hard to imagine how bad this movie could get. It is a film of great depth, a movie that shows the past as it is. It shows the fates of the poor and the destitute. It shows the violent forms of love and lust, the life of a person, how they turn into an animal, and the nature of their soul. It is the story of a man who is tormented by his life. The story is a test of human will, of the will to survive. If we want to see a great movie, we must go back in time and see the history of the world, and how it changed. The best movies are the movies of the past, not the movies of today, and "The Lobster" is a great movie of the past.

My only word to the film makers is "thank you." This is an extremely thoughtful, very meaningful film. It has a very distinctive, literary quality to it, which makes it particularly meaningful to those who are not in a position to have experienced it. I found it very moving and very thought-provoking. I am glad to see films like this continue to be made. It is not easy to make a film of this type, and the movie makers have made an extremely well done job. The movie is not afraid to say that it is a character study and that it has a "heart." I was very impressed with the acting of the two leads. I was able to take some of the more disturbing aspects of the story and feel sympathetic to it, instead of disgusted. The movie is definitely not for everyone. It is not meant to be "taught" or "celebrated." It is meant to be a work of art. I highly recommend this film to everyone, as it is one of the very few films that is truly a work of art. I hope that the film makers make more films like this one in the future.

This movie is an astonishing piece of work. A story of love, betrayal, revenge, redemption and hope. This is a movie about the art of cinema and the struggle to make a masterpiece of art. This movie is a must see for all movie lovers.

The film has to be the best film in Hungarian history. I have seen it a few times, and I like it so much that I'll watch it every time I get the chance. I believe that the film is based on a true story, and it is a well done story, full of emotions, with a great story, with many aspects that are very important in this country, and that are not mentioned in other movies. I don't know the other movies about this, but this one is very good, very good.

This is a very good movie about the true story of a young Hungarian woman who, in the 1970's, was a victim of the Hungarian secret police. This movie is very intense and you are glued to the screen, and the ending is very good. I recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a good movie about the Hungarian secret police. This movie is very good and the ending is very good.

I am not going to comment on the technical aspects of this film. It is just a work of art, and a good one at that. It is my opinion that the movie was influenced by "Aguirre, the Wrath of God" (1969), "Citizen Kane" (1941), "The Big Sleep" (1952), "The Shining" (1980), "Ugetsu" (1966) and "The House on Haunted Hill" (1956). I also think that the soundtrack is influenced by "The Poseidon Adventure" (1952), "Titanic" (1997), "The Tenant" (1963) and "A Night at the Opera" (1939). I do not know if there is any connection between these movies and the movie. It is a very good movie, a real masterpiece, and I have never seen anything like it. A very rare movie, one that is not only a masterpiece but a work of art. A work of art that will be appreciated for generations to come.
