In a cheap Parisian hotel room Oscar Wilde lies on his death bed. The past floods back, taking him to other times and places. Was he once the most famous man in London? The artist crucified by a society that once worshipped him? Under the microscope of death he reviews the failed attempt to reconcile with his long suffering wife Constance, the ensuing reprisal of his fatal love affair with Lord Alfred Douglas and the warmth and devotion of Robbie Ross, who tried and failed to save him from himself. Travelling through Wilde's final act and journeys through England, France and Italy, the transience of lust is laid bare and the true riches of love are revealed. It is a portrait of the dark side of a genius who lived and died for love.

this is one of the best dramas about India and how she stands in relation to the world. This film shows the history of India from its beginning to its end. It shows how she is the most beautiful country in the world and the only country that cares about its citizens. Her people are the most civilized people in the world and she rules the world. It shows that the common man who is ignorant about all the events in the world, is a real lover of India and the Indian people. This is a film that i am sure will be remembered as a cultural and film-making masterpiece. One of the best movies ever made!

I first watched this movie on cable TV. I was not prepared for the story line, which is one of the saddest I have ever witnessed. I felt so bad for George, who was not always given the resources of a rich guy and who would be left with a bad name. This movie gave me such a good feeling, that it even changed my perspective of life. It is like George's reality in his own eyes. It gave me the impression that George might be doing his best, but all his dreams were still a dream. I have watched this movie over and over, so it is a film that I enjoy every time I watch it. I am happy that I did. I am still happy with the message of the movie, and it is not a message of a rich guy that had everything. I found the movie very moving, because I have felt that George's dream of being a good guy is not always so, and it was not the case for everyone.

As a westerner, I was disappointed with this movie. A middle aged western man turned Islamic extremist with an obsession for murder and gore did not ring true to me. Also, I have had trouble accepting this film for what it is: a film about a westerner who turned Islamic extremist. I can't really understand why this film was made and what it did to America. I'm not a journalist and I'm not a historian so I cannot say for sure what it has done to our country. If you want to know more about this film, you should read the book or watch the film itself. It's important to know where this film is coming from so we can determine what it's trying to do.

I was pleasantly surprised to see this movie. I'm not a real fan of Disney movies and I'm not a fan of musicals. I think they've strayed from their roots a little in the past couple of years. But this movie is an exception. It is a very interesting story and a nice story to watch. I liked how the movie is told. It is very slow but it is slow enough to keep you interested. I found the cinematography and sound design to be excellent. It was nice to see such a talented cast that includes Ben Stiller, Paul Giamatti, Vanessa Redgrave, and John Goodman. The movie was touching and well made and I'm glad it was made. The only thing I didn't like was that it was so slow. It made me think it was really boring and I was hoping it would pick up. I don't know if this is a Disney movie or not. It certainly wasn't boring. I found it very interesting. I give it a B.

When I was growing up, the first TV drama I ever watched was "Jurassic Park" - a film I found to be a lot of fun. So, when I saw this film at the movie house last weekend, I was surprised to see how much of a lot of fun it was. This film has a lot of life and humor and is actually a great family movie. I really do believe that this film should have a higher rating on IMDb. It really is a lot of fun, but I think that the critics don't like it because it is about a war of the world's oceans. I believe this film should have a higher rating because it is one of the best family films that I have ever seen.

What a great movie about the life of a famous writer. The problem with this movie is that it's too long. Some scenes drag on forever. The film isn't all that bad, but it doesn't really have a lot of heart. It's just all too long.

In the 1980's, a film called "The Happy Prince" was released to theaters, which starred Richard Gere and Cicely Tyson, as the parents of a mentally handicapped child. This film is based on a true story, and stars both Richard Gere and Cicely Tyson. It is a wonderful film, and you will not be disappointed if you decide to watch it. Richard Gere is excellent in the lead role, and Cicely Tyson is amazing. I have seen this film many times, and I have watched it many times again. The story is not new, but the way it is told is very moving, and the ending is very touching. I would recommend this film to anyone who is looking for a good film to watch.

For most of the film, I really did not know what I was watching. I was clearly a happy child until I discovered this world of slums and deprivation and looked at the children. Then I realized I was wrong about my opinions about these children. The children are one of the most fascinating subjects in this film. The movie starts with an introduction and some basic details about them. The entire world, the slums, the children, all these aspects are shown in a realistic way. I found myself fascinated by these children and the images I was shown. But what makes the film more realistic is the behavior of these children. They are more real than most of the people around them. They act like real children. I found myself truly touched by these children, this powerful film about the powerful children. I must say that I really like the way these children act and what they have to go through. I do not want to make this review seem like I am praising this film. I simply feel that it is a powerful movie. It makes me think about how we live our lives, how we treat people and how we can become a better person. It is about our selfishness and how we can affect others in a positive way. I can tell you that I am going to see it again. I will go and see the film again. I will be happy if I can share the movie with my family and friends. I highly recommend this film to anyone who likes movies that are different from the norm and that make you feel good.

This movie tells a true story of what is the life of one man, who's life has been a long struggle to find a way out of his problem with gambling and addiction. The acting is great, the story is touching, the cinematography is beautiful.The only problem is, that the movie is a little slow.There is a lot of information to absorb in the movie, but after a while, it gets a little boring.If you have the patience to watch this movie, you will love it.

I recently saw this movie with an audience of other Asian film buffs. The movie itself was good. It was well made, with some good visual effects. The story was interesting and dramatic. The actors did a great job. But there were so many things I didn't like about the movie. The director is very good at making us feel as if we were watching a story from his family's experience. The cast and acting is very good. The cinematography is beautiful. But the script, the story, the structure, the dialog, the editing. I can go on and on about this movie, but I won't because I want to not spoil it. Just to say, watch it. There are so many other movies that are better than this one.

One of the few movies that I've seen where I actually liked the main characters, and that's a hard thing to say for a Hollywood movie. It's interesting that there's so much hate on this film, but in a way it's kind of refreshing. I guess I was expecting a cliched film about how everyone should just have a happy life. I actually enjoyed the entire movie and it was actually surprisingly good. It's kind of like the thing I was afraid of when I read the book, but I still managed to like it. I don't think I'd ever see the movie, but I'd probably buy it on DVD or something.

What the audience won't see is the intense anti-regime propaganda that the C.I.A. spread throughout the country. This was the approach used to manufacture people's hatred towards Fidel Castro. Any citizen who would object to this type of propaganda would have been punished in Cuba, and then would be executed. This is the way the C.I.A. operated. The scenes in Cuba were carefully crafted to be as believable as possible. The music was done with a hand-held style, which made it seem like the audience was "on" the scene. It is a wonderful film that shows the efforts that went into the making of this film. If you're looking for an accurate depiction of what the C.I.A. did to Cuba, then I strongly recommend "The Man Who Knew Too Little." I saw this film when I was in my teens, and it is still very relevant today. A must see for anyone who enjoys films and documentaries.

While the film is excellent, it seems that the message it conveys is sometimes overshadowed by its well-written dialogue and acting. In fact, there is a scene near the end where we are treated to some truly heart-wrenching dialogue which moves the story forward quite nicely. However, the film's message does become a little vague and rather off-putting. It seems that the writers of the film were not sure how to convey their message. It feels as though the film tries to do too much and has little content to say. Perhaps the writers failed to know what to say. Perhaps they were trying to be too thoughtful and witty, but they failed. Perhaps the film failed to move the audience because it never really takes a strong or deep position. It leaves you thinking about it afterwards, but that's not really what I expected. While the film does have its own message, the message of the film is not very engaging.

The Happy Prince is a film about a family that was formed by the death of their father. The family was a very close knit one, but it was never easy to say goodbye. As the film progresses, we are shown the effect of the death on the family members. The film is beautifully shot and is well acted. The characters are all very likable and the film does not rely on loud, dramatic music to keep the audience on the edge of their seats. The film does not tell the story of the family, but rather shows the effects of the death. The Happy Prince is a film that I would recommend to anyone.
