A great movie with a great cast, a great script and a great ending. I saw this movie and I have to say that this movie is one of the best movies I have ever seen. It is a good story, a great cast and a great ending. The movie has a great cast, especially Anya and the supporting cast. The movie has great special effects, great action and a great story. I would recommend this movie to anyone who has seen the movie "Saving Private Ryan" or "The Dark Knight" or any other movie with Tom Hanks or Will Smith.

I can't help but to admire this film. It's not about the Holocaust. It's about how human beings behave in times of extreme difficulty and desperation. It's about the human being that has to stand up to the huge and overwhelming forces that he/she faces in the face of chaos and destruction. I'm not saying this film is the most important film ever made, but it is an excellent and important film. The performances are brilliant, the story is great and the ending is devastating. This film is very moving, not because of the Holocaust, but because of the human beings who have to deal with the things that happen in war. The scene where Anya's mother dies is especially moving, and I really hope that people will watch this film. It's a very sad story, and it's also very good and important.

I thought this movie was good. I thought it was a good one. I also thought it was good when I saw the trailer. I thought it was a good movie because it showed the difference between friendship and family and it showed the life that one person can go through in the military. The movie also showed the life of a soldier. The only problem was that the movie was kind of slow. It was good but it wasn't that great. I would give it a 7 out of 10.

Anya is a woman who escaped from a concentration camp in Germany and is now living in a small town in France. She has been living in a rundown apartment for years. In a nearby town, a mysterious man (played by Jean-Louis Trintignant) offers to help her escape from her apartment and into the big city. But Anya soon learns that this man has a dark past and is still in hiding. This is an enjoyable and well done film, with some very good performances by Trintignant and the rest of the cast. However, the story itself is not particularly strong. The first half of the film focuses on Anya trying to escape into the big city but it never really establishes how she ends up there or why. The film just sort of hangs out there and doesn't make any real sense. It just never really develops into anything. Another big problem with the film is that the story is very hard to understand. The plot is all over the place, and the film is just too confusing for the viewer. It's like trying to read a novel by trying to read the book. It's also really slow and boring. The film is not terrible, but it just doesn't make a lot of sense.

This is a must see film that can be viewed by anyone. I can't believe that I have not seen this film before. I'm not even sure if I have ever seen a film like this before. It is a well written, well acted, well directed film. There are no dull moments in this film. There are some that will have you cheering and some that will have you laughing. It is a film that is not to be missed.

When I first saw the film, I was left wondering why I watched it. It was boring. But the more I watched it, the more I liked it. I can't help but think that I should have watched the entire film to get the full effect. The acting is great, and the plot is very complex. The cinematography is beautiful. The soundtrack is pretty good. The only reason I gave this film a 7 instead of an 8 is because it was so slow at times. I'd have to say that it's worth watching, but not great.

I love the idea behind this movie, it is a great mix of war, love and revenge. The story is very simple, yet it does the trick very well. The actors are good, but the most important thing about this movie is the story. It is not about the violence, it is about the emotions, it is about the way people feel and how they react to it. If you have a few hours to spare, I recommend watching this movie. If you are looking for something different from the usual Hollywood movies, this is the movie for you.

I had the opportunity to view this film at the 2002 Toronto Film Festival, and I can honestly say I liked it. Although I was very disappointed with the ending, I thought the film was well-made and a good story, even if the ending is not what I would have chosen. The film has a good balance between drama and comedy, and the acting is very good, as I expected from David Cross and Jessica Chastain. I also found the story very engaging. Although it is not my favorite film, I was very impressed and happy with the experience. Overall, it was a good film. It is not a classic, but I think that is what it is: a movie, not a story.

First of all, I was a little hesitant about watching this movie, because it looks like a movie that you can get from the cable channels and it's basically all about action, not much else. But I decided to give it a try and I am very happy that I did. This movie is a thriller and it definitely has a lot of suspense in it. The story of the movie is about a girl named Anya, who gets sent to the US Army to be a sniper, and she also gets to be a prisoner in a strange place, and then she falls in love with a man named Alex, who is in the army. He gets in contact with the Colonel of the army and tells him about the whereabouts of a guy who has escaped from the prison. The Colonel sends a very tough and efficient soldier named Raymond into the place where Alex and Anya are. The Colonel sends Raymond to a certain place to try and kill Anya. But Alex tells him that Anya is okay and to stop the Colonel from killing her. The Colonel is so scared and he doesn't know how to stop Raymond. Then Alex and Raymond are in a battle to kill the Colonel and save Anya. The movie has a lot of action and suspense and it's a great movie.

I first saw this movie at the age of 13. It scared me and made me realize that war could be a very real thing. I watched this movie again and again over the years, and still it brings a tear to my eye every time. I first saw this movie when it was released in 2000. I am now 26 and have watched it on DVD many times. I still love this movie. It's one of those movies that you just need to watch over and over again. If you haven't seen this movie yet, you need to. It's a great movie to watch with your family, or just watch alone at night. It's a movie that you will enjoy. I loved the acting in this movie. It's a movie that you will be able to relate to. I highly recommend this movie to anyone who has never seen it before.

I am not a movie buff but this movie is so much better than most of the movies I have seen in the past. The story is realistic and the characters are very real. The acting is also very good. The movie is very close to reality and it is very realistic. It is a very intense movie. It is also very powerful and very realistic. I do not understand why this movie is not rated higher. I hope that the movie will be rated higher. The movie is very good and very powerful and very realistic. It is very hard to find a movie like this one. It is very hard to find a movie that is so real and realistic. I really recommend this movie to people who like realistic movies. This movie is a must see and I think that this is one of the best movies ever made.

I'm not the biggest fan of the war movie genre but I had a little feeling of war in this movie. I don't like to watch the movies that depict the horrors of war on innocent people. I think it's great that the movie's a bit different from the other war movies. I can understand that the movie portrays the main characters as the heroes of the war and as the ones that are saved but I don't understand the point of making a war movie that's not about war. It's a bit weird that the main character has such an attitude towards war and the enemy soldiers but then when the main character is at the end of the war he shows the face of a person that doesn't care about anything except saving the girl. But I don't think that that is the best thing about the movie. The movie is good but I don't think that it's the best war movie.

I watched this film in a cinema, and I must say I was in awe of the acting. The story is very interesting and the characters are very real. It's one of the few films that have made me cry. This is the kind of film that makes you think and it makes you feel. I love it, and I'll watch it again, because it is so real.

The film is beautifully shot and the plot is intriguing. But the problem with this film is the underdeveloped plot. In this film you are not given a clear picture of what is going on. This is a nice effort to make the plot more developed, but it is not successful. All the characters are very underdeveloped, and are not given enough time to develop. It feels like the story is rushed, and you can't understand why the characters are the way they are. I also feel that this film could have been a lot better if they could have spent more time on the characters, but it still is a pretty good film. You should watch this film if you enjoy WW2 films, as it is a great film, but it is not a must see.

I recently saw this movie and thought it was pretty good. It had a good story line and the acting was good. I do think it could have been better, but it was pretty good. I was really impressed by Anya's acting. I also liked the story line and the ending. The whole movie was very interesting. I thought it was pretty good. I give it a 9 out of 10.

The movie "Wearing The Glass" is about a young woman (Laura Linney) who wakes up in a hospital in Berlin and that is where she is given the choice of living or dying. That is where she is held captive by the Gestapo and she has to learn to survive. The movie is also about a man (Martin Freeman) who is with her in a hotel and he helps her escape and find out what is happening to her. The movie is very well done, very scary and has a lot of suspense. It is very hard to explain, so I would just recommend that you watch it.

I didn't want to watch this film, I didn't really like the trailers and had heard of it from a friend. So I decided to give it a go, I really didn't expect much, but I ended up really liking it. The plot is pretty good, the acting is decent, and there are a few tense moments. I liked the ending very much. I recommend watching this film if you want to watch something more violent, but it is really worth watching, especially if you like war movies. Definitely worth watching!

I'm not a fan of political movies, so I found this one quite interesting. I think the director did a great job in portraying the atmosphere in a relatively realistic manner. I'm not sure if I would call this a thriller, but I think it's quite effective and suspenseful. I think the movie shows that politics doesn't mean that you can be the one in power. Politics can change the rules of the game, and this movie shows that. I think the movie did a good job in showing the difficulties in dealing with an unknown and non-local leader. I think it's very well done. I would definitely recommend this movie.

I am not the type of person who would say "Oh I really liked this movie", but I actually liked this movie. I think it is one of those movies that is so good and so well done that it makes you want to watch it again and again. The movie starts off slow but picks up a lot as it goes on. It is a movie that can be watched and enjoyed by anyone. I believe it is more suitable for adults than kids. I am not a fan of Jane Fonda but I think she did a good job playing a tough but caring woman. The only problem I had with this movie is the ending. I thought it was a little too rushed and that the ending was a little too much of a shock. I think it would have been better to leave the ending up to the imagination and not just say "That's it, she is dead". I think it would have been better to let the audience draw their own conclusion.
