One of the best films I've ever seen. I am impressed by all the actors' performance, the technical work, the story, the scenery and everything. I have already recommended it to my friends and family. I've seen it 2 times. One of the greatest movies I've ever seen. The director, the producer, the writer, the other actors, the movie, it's so touching, it's so simple. I think everyone should see it, even if they are not interested in theater. But if you are, you'll love it. The best movie ever. Thank you so much!

I thought I'd read something about this movie before, but I was still expecting a standard fantasy movie. Well, I was wrong. This is truly a masterpiece of its kind. It is a rare film that goes beyond the typical fantasy settings. The main character is essentially a re-incarnation of the one we have all seen in other movies, with great special effects and beautifully executed acting. That being said, it is the characters that carry the film. Most of them are incredibly unique and very real, and this makes the story a compelling one. Every character is filled with depth and depth is exactly what this movie demands, and the script actually feels really special and interesting. The story starts out with a great prologue with a fair amount of action, while the rest of the film focuses on the main character, who is a young woman from the underworld, seeking her fortune. Eventually she comes to the world of humans, and is able to gain the same power she had, which is a power she is granted by the sun. After a brief time with the humans, she is forced to leave the town and travel across the world, but is still suffering from the same pains she had at the town. She is being offered money, and a way to get out, but instead she chooses to be part of a secret society that is part of the new generation, a group of people who live in harmony with nature, and in the absence of the sun. The sun has been exiled from the world, but not completely, because it still controls the animals of the land. The film is not too long, but it manages to set the stage well. There is an emphasis on the relationships between the characters and the moments when things go wrong. Every time the sun comes out, the relationship between the main characters becomes stronger, and as they get closer to the Sun, they find a new way of relating to each other. The acting in this movie is outstanding, especially from Lee and Winstone. They really are quite remarkable. This is definitely one of my favorite movies of all time, and I can't wait for it to come out on DVD. It deserves a lot of praise, and I will be getting it soon.

I recently saw the movie, I had not heard of it, but I was pleasantly surprised by it. The acting was outstanding, the photography, effects, setting, etc., were breathtaking. The story, as many reviews have stated, was interesting, and very well done. I thought that I knew the ending. I was not disappointed, I am still undecided whether I will buy the movie or not. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

This film was made in the 1980's and it is still an amazing film to this day. It really is an incredible piece of cinema and even today I find it inspiring and awe inspiring to be able to watch this film. The way the story is told is so simple yet so profound that you get sucked into the film. I highly recommend this film to anyone that is a fan of this film, but especially to those who have seen it and know what you are going to see. This film is an amazing piece of cinema. The acting is phenomenal, the directing is fantastic, the photography is fantastic and the story is amazing. I highly recommend this film to anyone.

This is a very difficult film to review, it is not just a movie, it is a very special story about someone who has to get through life without ever losing hope. His family are great, they have everything and he's in the middle of it all, his doctor tells him that he's going to die, so what do he do? He writes a letter to God, he gives it to his friend, they give it to someone else and he gives it to himself. He realizes that he can't just die like everyone else, that's how he makes this trip. I'm not going to give you any information about the plot of the movie, because everyone who watches it will do that for themselves. All I can say is that the movie is not just about dying, but about accepting and living the life you are living, and that's what makes it so powerful. After seeing it I was speechless. If you are open to be educated about something, than watch this film, it will open your eyes and open your heart. If you want to see a movie with no major spoilers, then see it. If you don't like films that show how much you have to go through in order to feel satisfied, then you should probably avoid this movie, because it will show you how deep and satisfying the life is. It's not just a movie, it's a personal journey, and it's about that journey, and that's what makes it so powerful. Great story, great acting, great music and directing.

This movie has a very traditional story, and a very old setting. It is about the generations of our ancestors. At the same time, it is about the Vietnam War, and how we all should know that this is a very negative issue, and we should avoid it at all costs. Some things in this movie are very emotional and touching. I can't give it a 10 rating, but it is an excellent movie. See it.

The acting was superb. I highly recommend this film to all who are looking for a film to take home. I think this film is really amazing. The movie was great!

I can't even begin to explain how much this movie means to me. It's like I'm watching it again. All I can do is sit back and watch as David Lee Roth throws himself in the deep end of a swimming pool for the sole purpose of diving to the bottom. I'll have to tell you more about it, because it is a movie that would just be amazing to watch again, but I think you'll see what I mean. I am a massive fan of John Turturro, and this movie is like a breath of fresh air in this sea of other psycho-violence movies. I was amazed at how many different things I would pick up on during this film, and I can't say that for a lot of films out there. I can't say that for many films. David Lee Roth is one of those rare talents that no one has ever heard of. I'm surprised to see that John Turturro doesn't have more recognition, but that is just the way it is. I'm looking forward to seeing John Quaritch again, because I think he's a perfect match for David Lee Roth. What can I say? This movie was amazing. It was intense and beautiful and brilliant. I'll see it again soon. I'd love to get to see it again.

There is a wonderful scene where the viewer is expected to come to terms with the fate of people who choose to be dead and buried. The stories that the narrator tells are all about how this happens. "It's the big day.The big event that everyone has been waiting for." Yes, this is the true meaning of the life of a corpse. Death has no place in this life. This is a well written story, well acted, well directed and well edited. I would recommend it to anyone who is a lover of poetry, literature, or the beauty of human being. My two star rating is for the chance to have an evening spent with this movie.

This movie is one of the best I've seen in my life. It is a very thought provoking movie with an outstanding story line and great cinematography. The acting was very good and kept the film moving at a great pace. The movie is about the current situation in the world and the bad ones that they are dealing with. The movie is shot very well and the locations are perfect for the setting of the story. This movie is a must see, and is one of the best films I have ever seen.

I was fortunate enough to attend the screening of this film in Hollywood. The story is told in a raw way, through a series of personal stories of the cast and crew of the film. The story of the film itself is simple. A small town in California experiences a devastating tornado. It is the last remaining survivor of the town and the head of the town is in mourning over the loss of a loved one. All the townsfolk turn to their co-workers for help, and eventually decide to band together. The story unfolds in a non-linear fashion, as the story is told in chronological order, alternating between the story of the family members, the leaders of the town, and their past experiences. It is the acting of the lead character, Rodney, that struck a chord in me. He has such a raw honesty in his acting that it just felt right. The story of his family, which includes a mother, mother in law, and a father in law, was told very well. A lot of the moments felt very real, and it felt like Rodney had been living this story for decades. The film also had great photography, and excellent production design. The story is not what I expected from a movie like this. It felt like I was watching a documentary about a real town that experienced a tornado. I was so glad that the director made this movie because I felt so good after watching it. This film is very real and is very realistic, it tells the story of one family that was left without anyone to help them. I think the people in this movie were very well put together, and I look forward to seeing what they do next.

The film, and the entire casting and production are outstanding. It is a great story about a man's marriage, the role of the Christian and family. I hope more people will watch it and go into the unknown world of films like this one. It is the first time I have seen a film that reminds me of my own family.
