This is an independent film that just happens to have the two of them in it. I would say it's a 7 out of 10, but it really comes down to personal preference. I found it very realistic and interesting. I would recommend this for people who like to watch the "whole picture" of the story. I found it very deep and moving, and I really felt for the characters. I also think that it is important to have a good supporting cast, as this story does not have that many points to make. I can honestly say that I am glad that I took the time to watch this film, and that I got a great amount of enjoyment out of it.

This movie was totally boring, it just ends and the story begins over. I hate when a movie stops. The guy seems to have a lot of energy, that's what I like about him. I would really like to see this guy in a more serious role. I didn't feel there was any chemistry between them at all. I was disappointed by the whole plot, and it seemed to be there only to end the movie. But the ending was really cool.

This was a very nice and entertaining movie. From the start, it keeps you in suspense, is very interesting and interesting enough to keep you interested. The acting was great, especially from Joel Edgerton, as was the cinematography. The ending is also really touching. I recommend this movie, it's definitely something to watch on a rainy day.

I saw this film at a film festival. It was directed by the brilliant Juan Carlos Fresnadillo, who previously directed Juana and I Walked With A Zombie. I read the excellent synopsis of the story and I thought I would like it. But there were things I found, not just in the film itself, but also in the writing. The film portrays a lot of angst. The three main characters are struggling to cope with their own faults and problems. It shows how much can happen in just one day. Especially in a moment where the man loses his temper and gets his head bashed in. This is one of the best scenes I have seen in a film. The camera doesn't linger, but stays on the situation. It becomes almost an torture. But what I also find interesting is how much the guy also suffers from his own fears and problems. That his mind and his fear can't be away. You feel like you know him, but he is isolated. I believe the three of them should be closer, but they aren't. He feels the pain from the other two, but doesn't show it. I also found the story itself intriguing. I didn't understand it and I didn't know why the characters were in the situation they were in. I found it interesting the relationship between the three main characters. I also liked the acting of the main actor, Mr. Alcala. I don't think he is just a great actor, but a great guy. He made me believe he is the main character, because I saw what he was going through. I liked his voice, it gave me a feeling I didn't know I could have. That's one of the reasons why I liked the film. I also loved the camera. It was the only thing I didn't like about it. It was definitely fast and heavy, but not really. It was slow enough to look at and build a scene, but at the same time not slow enough to look back at. But at the end, there was a bang, and that was the end of the film. That's one of the main things I hated. The other thing that bothered me about the film was the fact that I found it predictable. The film tries to make the audience believe that the other two characters have the same problems and problems. But then, the film decided to throw in an ending that was so predictable that it didn't matter. Maybe the author was trying to make the audience care for the main character, but in my opinion it wasn't necessary. I also disliked the title. It made me think of a movie I haven't seen called The Village, which I haven't seen in a long time. The Village is a much better movie than this. This one is one of the best I have seen. I hope you like it. 7.8/10

The film opens with the words "A woman's mind is like a stormy sea". That's what I took from it. It's a very strong opening, and you think that the film is going to be more like a drama, but then the film goes into a non-linear narrative and you start to wonder, what is the point? The film is made up of many pieces that don't all fit together in a meaningful way. You think the story is going to be more linear, but then it goes to a non-linear narrative. The story goes through a lot of sequences that don't make any sense. There are some good performances in the film, but it's not a good film.

I was really looking forward to this film. I had heard all the hype about it, and the reviews on IMDb were very positive. The movie had a good cast, and the cast did a good job. The problem was, it was not a good movie. The acting was pretty good, but the plot was a bit confusing. Some of the dialogue was good, but it was too much. I think the movie should have been longer. There were a few scenes that were good, but a lot of them were not. The script was a little weak. It seemed like they had a good idea, but they just couldn't put it into words. I think the movie could have been better, but it could have been better, but it was not good. I would recommend it to people who liked "The Truman Show" or "Troy".

The low-budget nature of this movie helps to give a sense of realism, despite the impression the plot is contrived. It is set during the last years of the French Resistance, when the resistance was not really serious, and where all the guerrillas were laughing at their heroes, sometimes they even despised them. They were not fighting for the country, they were fighting for their freedom. This movie portrays the in-between life of this resistance movement, where reality was a minor and even unimportant part of the resistance, but where in the movie reality is almost non-existent, in fact it is about nothing. This is not a documentary, or a history lesson, it is an animation. Thus it is a story about the daily lives of a Resistance fighter, but on a much smaller scale. The movie keeps to the plot and background of the Resistance movement. It is a drama, a comic, a musical and a comedy. The movie deals with reality, but not with a high degree of accuracy, so you could do worse. In fact, if you have not read the book, you will probably find the movie quite dull, but if you have read the book, you may find the movie quite interesting.

With the shooting of him (Jon Pertwee) by the government as a result of his being recruited to the Secret Service, we find ourselves in the world of the Secret Service and the responsibilities it takes to protect the President. It's a great subject and the movie's feel is excellent, it's very fast paced. While it's slow in parts, and while the Secret Service has been downgraded (due to the growing crises and terrorist attacks), the film is focused and there are a lot of scenes with good dialogue and real situations. The movie manages to pick apart the problems and problems of the Secret Service, and how their relationship to the President is strained. One of the best parts is when Jon Pertwee is discussing the problems of his men to the President, and he feels like he's in a prison, because he's paying so much attention to what he's told, and for him to be honest, he's in the military. The problem with this film is that it isn't very insightful on the subject of government and the security services. While it does bring the subject of the Secret Service up, there's not a lot of information, it doesn't dig deep into the work of the Secret Service, but rather how the Secret Service sees itself, and the issues of its performance. For some, this could be a weak point, but I think it's a worthwhile effort for people who appreciate good films and an intelligent view on government. Overall: 8.2
