What a great film. a must see for those who want a film with heart, a film that makes you cry. Im not really a fan of romantic films, they always are sort of lame and predictable, but this film is different. I've never seen such a great movie about the sacrifice of a child's life for her beautiful father. The tears are rolling down my face! How this film will leave you with a warm feeling inside, will remain a great memory to you. Grown up child was sacrificed for the sake of her father. What a brilliant scene and what a great film. An O.K. I guess this film should have received a 9 but it is only because the whole family loves it so much, so I would give it an 8. Its great for family movies, a great film for the entire family.

I first saw this movie in the cinema when I was in school and it really made an impression on me. The story is about a woman who is a journalist who has the ability to see her own life through the eyes of others and is forced to make some drastic decisions in her life. I really liked this movie because it is a perfect and a very mature portrayal of the lives of the people in a whole. It makes you feel really sad and sorry for them and makes you think about what the people in the world are going through because it is a real life story. I really liked this movie because the story is about reality and also because it tells the story of how people live in this world and what they do. The people in the movie act really real because the cast is really good and everybody did a good job. They did a really good job making us believe that what they do is real. But it is a movie about a world where the main character is only able to see what she sees and what people do and if she cannot see anything else then she feels she is totally useless and useless. But she can see what people do, even if she can't see the people that are not following her, even if she can't see the people that have the power. So, if you are looking for a good movie that can touch you and makes you think, I would recommend this movie. I think that this movie is really a great and brilliant movie and I am really glad that it was made because it was really a great movie.

I've just come back from the premier of Breathe at the Columbia Albertson's Video Nights and while the movie is not at all political I was still struck by how much the subject matter affected me and how much I didn't want to cry! I truly felt for the characters in the film and even though the story is based on true events the same feelings still creep through my body, while I was in tears in the theatre I felt that I had just seen the best and heart-breaking movie ever made. There was no obvious end to the film but there was an inevitable unraveling of the plot and it didn't take that long to feel like it was an endless movie. I also really felt like the film was a good representation of the heartbreak of a young girl's coming of age and learning that not everything will be just as easy and free as she had hoped. With a little luck and a little more education, I think that in the end the film will show the world that what we don't realize is all that we need to know. Even though it is true it does make me want to teach my students more about the issues that they're going through because of these problems. To the director, the actors, and everyone involved with the making of this film, thank you.

I think that Waleed Abu and his co-star are going to be so revered by the film-going public in future that I will not be able to speak about the film without making fun of them. It is a major achievement, as well as a triumph, for their movie to have been produced and showcased in this fashion. I look forward to seeing more of their work in the future.

I am a big fan of Daniel Day-Lewis and I was expecting something along the lines of King Arthur. What I got was Breathe. King Arthur is just the kind of film that i have been waiting for since I saw it. It is so well done that it takes me years to get over the fact that the movie is about the historical King Arthur. It is very well written and acted. It is a time that may have never come again in the modern history. But if you haven't seen it, go and see it. You won't be disappointed.

I saw Breathe at the American Film Institute's "For Your Consideration" screening in Washington, DC last night. It was outstanding, and I have to say it's a film that will be very appealing to all, especially women, and of course, all those who like to dance. Breathe is based on a real life dancer named Chantal Chore, who as a teenager was addicted to drugs, and her later addiction led her to the more dangerous world of the adult dance world. The movie begins when she is around the age of 15. We hear her story, and as Chore is in her early twenties she learns about dancing, and the dangers that sometimes lurk in the dance world. I found the movie to be quite compelling. While it is a somewhat slow pace, it was very entertaining. I felt it captured what Chore was thinking at the time, and it brought some sympathy to her, which was something I would have found hard to find in a documentary. As a woman who was dancing in a lot of "adult" flicks at that time, it helped me get a sense of what they were like, and it gave me an idea of what the dangers were. I was curious as to how much of Chore's life the movie was based on, and as I got closer to the end of the film I realized that it was based on my own life. At the end of the film, I felt a lot better for the entire day. That's what a great movie is supposed to do for a person.

Thank God someone finally produced a movie about the AIDS crisis. Yes, I was skeptical. But after watching this movie, I think the doubts were unwarranted. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who wants to see a movie that will make you laugh and cry, and not make you sick. The acting is superb, the directing is excellent, and the story line is so real it's amazing. It is a must see movie! The cinematography is beautiful, and the music adds to the movie. If you are curious about the history behind AIDS, go ahead and see this movie. If you are like me, you will want to see it several times. You will be amazed at the changes in society and culture during the 20 years AIDS ravaged the world. Yes, it is painful to watch, but I was so happy to see such a movie, that I actually cried. It truly is a "must see movie."

This is a film that really feels like it has a place in your heart. At times, I think I'm in love with my friend, at other times I'm sad for him, at other times I feel very lucky that I have this character in my life and that there are people like him. This movie truly captured me. The beauty of the film is that it is a character study. The characters in this film are one of the things I would like to remember about each and every one of my friends. The cinematography and design of the film really captures the good life that one can have in their twenties and thirties and I truly loved it. I look forward to seeing more from the director, I will look forward to seeing more films from Benelie Jean. As for this film, I absolutely recommend it to anyone who loves to watch a film about a character study. To each and every person, I wish you all the best!

From reading some of the other reviews, I have to agree with many of them. "Breathe" was fantastic. A pleasant story and a well written script, all in all. I think the only real flaw was the completely flat acting in the lead. Johnny Depp could've added a bit more warmth to his portrayal, but I felt his acting was stellar. I give the movie an A+

It's not easy to say whether or not a story will stick with you for years. An entire generation has grown up in an era of postmodernism and independent thinking. We accept very little of the mainstream media, and like those who are creative, we're out to out make a statement. There is a huge sense of loss that many of us have been dealt in this country. Even the most innocent of us have been shaped by what we see as being ours and being hurt by what we see as not being ours. I can't say I was expecting this movie to change my life, but I can say that it is a movie that changed my life. I'll never forget how I felt watching it, and I will never forget how I felt when I left the theater. By the time I was done, I wanted to tell everyone I know about this movie and the importance of it. It changed my life and it will continue to change mine.

I absolutely loved this movie, and I love all of Bong Joon-Ho's films. I love how he has a heart for his characters and their inner pain and struggles. I love how his films speak directly to people who don't have a lot of time for films, and there is a message to be found in all of them. He tells a story without glossing over what it means to be a real person. I love the movies that make me think, and he does that too. He makes you think and make you reflect on what you are seeing, which is rare in movies nowadays. This movie gave me that feeling of what it would feel like to be in that situation, but it was also so sincere. There was no attempt to sensationalize the story or make it easy to watch. This was one of the best movies of the year and I will be sure to check out his other films. I am happy that I have his movies and hope they do well. I hope that people feel the same way.

I would love to see the movie! I really thought it was one of the best movies ever. I am very surprised that it was even nominated for best picture. It had a very emotional scene between Idris Elba and Rachel Weisz. I think that the movie was also one of the best movies for guys. The guy who played Wyatt told me he was nervous before going into the movie. I think that the movie was about a person who had a difficult life in the world. They were both the main character in the movie. It was very important to see that Wyatt didn't accept the rest of the world, he didn't want to belong. Idris Elba played his part very well. I think that this movie was about a person who is on a mission to help people. It was also a movie about a person who was broken. I think that if you like romance movies like Romeo and Juliet or Juliet and William Shakespeare, you will love this movie. If you love movies that show the real life problems people have to face in life, you will love this movie. It is also a movie about a relationship. They were both very special characters. I would like to see the movie because I think that it was very important to me. I think that it was not a movie to just sit back and relax. I hope to see the movie at least once a year. I also think that it was very good because it is a movie for the guys. It showed that it was important to have a good relationship with your girlfriend.

Breathe is the ultimate gay love story. It may be quirky but all the jokes fall in place, and most importantly it works. The quirky element of the film is enhanced by the rocker actor, who makes the movie very touching and poignant. The rocker aspect of the film actually contributes to the good humor in the film and provides the depth of the characters. The star of the film is the movie itself. This film works because it is honest and vulnerable, not because it is sexy or gory or even touching. The acting is amazing, from the lead to the supporting characters. Sam Shepard as the lead was absolutely brilliant, and honestly I think this is one of his best performances. The film is extremely funny, the storyline is catchy, and the characters are deep and realistic. I highly recommend this movie. 8/10

Friedkin, a writer, director and producer who is often under-appreciated, has directed a masterfully complex and visually brilliant film about a Jewish family trying to cope with the aftermath of World War II. As the movie opens, we are on a train to Auschwitz. We are never quite sure where we are and what we are doing. It is later revealed that we are part of a family who was traveling to the place where the Holocaust was being committed. Soon we are also in a boat with other Jewish families and several of them survive the Holocaust. It is during this time that Friedkin seems to be having a hard time telling the story of this Holocaust. The movie has several interesting twists and turns as the story takes its course. We learn that Friedkin originally had a script that he intended to direct. Unfortunately, the Nazis stopped funding him when they saw his script. Friedkin wanted to make this film because he felt that this was the only way that Jews could have their history told. He wanted to tell the story of the Holocaust and to do so he used film as a medium to tell his story. The movie features two brilliant performances by Timothy Hutton and Kerry Fox. I think that the real stars of this movie are the actors and the people who play their parts. Friedkin has cast a masterful performance of Hutton, who is on the verge of hysteria. Hutton portrays his character's initial shock, followed by an effort to come to terms with the tragedy. He later becomes hysterical. As the family enters Auschwitz, Hutton plays him as a loving husband and father and tries to figure out his problem. Fox does a much better job of playing the mother and offers us a powerful story of the Holocaust. We learn about the children's difficulty in telling their parents about the tragedy. We learn how she tries to act, not to be one of the crazy parents but to accept and not to blame the Nazis for the Holocaust. Friedkin directs and writes a very moving story about how a family cannot simply hide from the truth. Friedkin has the kind of abilities to make great films. When you think that he has made films about the Holocaust, he has made films about other powerful tragedies such as AIDS, AIDS in the military, and in Africa. I would suggest that anyone who appreciates film should see Friedkin's work in his film "The Lover."

I think this movie is a very interesting film. It has a certain elegance, and the acting is absolutely fabulous. The dialogue, the story is of the very best quality. A little bit confusing at first, but after you have watched it, you will really have a heart attack. The atmosphere of the movie is great, it feels very real and very noble. The film is not exactly a drama, and has elements of comedy, romance and action. It's a very serious and serious movie that deserves a lot of applause. I highly recommend it to all who love great films. A+ 10/10

This is a very touching film about a young man who has an illness that makes him unable to breathe. The film follows his struggle with this illness and how he tries to cope with it. The film is very moving and very well done. The performances are very good. I liked the chemistry between the actors and the direction of the film. I think this film will make you feel for the main character and how he is trying to cope with this illness. I think this is a great film that you should watch.

I was a bit skeptical about this film. I was expecting a more serious, less humorous film. I was wrong. It was a funny film. I think the best part of the film was the beginning. The first 30 minutes of the film were very funny. The jokes were well written and the characters were well developed. I would recommend this film to anyone who enjoys comedy.

It is funny how there are people who just watch movies in order to criticise them. I would just watch movies if I wasn't around and it made me feel relaxed. I don't go to movies just to criticise. I watch them just to be entertained. It is just like going to the cinema, it gives me more confidence in myself. Watching the movie was just an introduction to me. I was amazed at how well the director showed the chemistry between the main characters and how he did it. My only comment on this movie is that the director didn't even bring any of the cast and just made them characters in his own way. The movie was just like a film school project, it was beautifully made. Although it is a comedy movie, I thought it would be like one because it was just like a really good film school project. A must watch movie.

I have seen this movie on DVD, and I found it to be a good movie. I think it is a good movie to show to children as a way to show that people are different. It is not a movie to show to adults, but I think it is a good movie to show to children. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is a parent or anyone who is a child. I think this movie would be good for children to watch.

I was quite excited to see this film, I've always been a fan of Nicole Kidman and she's always done a great job in films, so I was looking forward to seeing this. The film is a drama about a young woman who has just been released from prison, and is now looking for her place in life. The film is not without its flaws, for one, it is a bit slow, it could have been a lot faster. I also found it hard to believe that a woman who was locked up for so long could be such a loving, caring person. The film also has a very nice and beautiful ending, but it is a bit too long and the film could have been shorter. The film is very touching and emotional, but it could have been a bit shorter and a lot more dramatic. The acting is great, but I did find the film a bit too slow. The film is a must see for anyone who is a fan of Nicole Kidman, she is just a great actress.

When I first saw this movie, I was told that this movie was about a deceased woman, because the woman was dying of cancer. I thought that it was going to be about her husband. Because I was told this, I knew that there would be so much sadness in the movie. However, I felt great emotion when she died. It is a very powerful film. The acting is great. The story is about her life. This film makes you think. The director is clearly a talented woman. The movie is very moving and makes you feel sad.

I went into this movie not knowing anything about it, and I was pleasantly surprised. The movie is about a young man who is struggling with the death of his mother and is trying to find his own way in life. The movie is very much a drama, but I felt it was very much a drama that the movie didn't need to be. I thought the acting was very good, especially from the two leads. The movie was very interesting, and the ending was very good. It is definitely worth seeing, but don't expect it to be a movie that you'll be talking about for a long time.

I thought this movie was great. I was expecting a dull movie about a guy who had a thing for a girl, but he did not have a thing for a girl. All in all, the acting was great, the plot was great, and the music was excellent. The story was great, because it was something that would happen in real life. Some of the special effects were a little over the top, but not to the point where it ruined the movie. The production of this movie was fantastic, as I expected it to be, and it really was a well done movie. I recommend this movie to anyone who enjoys movies. This movie really hits home with people, because it is something you know you have to live through. I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone.
