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.

Although not a great film, The Happy Prince is a great work of art, a warm, funny, and touching film. It's a story about a man who is depressed and has a broken heart, a broken-hearted and lonely man who finds joy in his life by watching the movie "the happy prince" on television, a man who finds hope in the most unlikely of places. I would highly recommend this movie to anyone, and if you have not seen this film yet, I would highly recommend that you do. It's a film that is truly wonderful, a film that will leave you smiling, and feeling good about life. And, it is a film that is the first of its kind. I would give this film an 8.5 out of 10.

Willem Dafoe and his cast of characters all bring a charm to the film that was absent from the original. This is not a film for those who enjoy thematically similar movies, which is why I am a little disappointed that this is not a better movie. It is a very good film that leaves the audience with a lot to think about, but this is a film that one should experience for themselves.

One of the many reasons why I'm a huge fan of the 20th century. First I'll mention the film and then tell you what it was like. "The Happy Prince" is an in depth look at the life of Russian composer, Vladimir Shostakovich, who spent the latter part of his life in the United States. Directed by Nikita Mikhalkov and written by Michael Winterbottom, this documentary chronicles his life from his youth up to the present day. The film focuses on his childhood in the small town of Irkutsk, and his experiences as a young man, and then his years of studying in London. After meeting and falling in love with Natalia Shostakova, he leaves Russia and returns to his homeland to be a composer in the first half of the 20th century. He continues his studies until he finds a new love in young Natalia. Although I won't go into details, this film really tells a story that many of us have heard before, but is now being told again by a great film maker, and all the actors are fantastic. The only real downside of this film is the length. The documentary is very long, and in my opinion, that slows the film down a bit. I understand that this is an old documentary, but I feel that it could have been shortened, and perhaps the film could have been shorter, and I feel that it would have been a better film. If I could, I would have shortened the film to only about 2 hours, and cut out most of the scenes that are not about the composer's life. This film does have a great message to it, and if you've never heard of this man, then you should check it out.

What's going on in the world? As a recent convert to Islam, I am struggling with the concept of the religion. I am unable to identify with it. Yet, I also don't feel I can fully understand it. One thing that bothered me was the fact that the plot was full of coincidences. As a result, I could not find any reason to be satisfied with the film. The film did make me think about Islam and I understand why people would want to see the film. However, it was a bit too long for me. It could have been shorter. The film was divided into two parts. The first half was about the way that people from different cultures interacted. The second half was about the Islam itself. I enjoyed the first half but I think the second half was a little bit of a let down. The plot was just not strong enough to keep me engaged. The film was just too long and not engaging enough. I would have liked to see the film in a shorter format. I felt the film would have been better if I watched the first half first. I thought the second half was boring and just didn't really get going. The first half of the film was better than the second half of the film. I recommend this film to those who are interested in religion. The plot of the film is about the conflicts in society between Muslims and non-Muslims. However, the plot is too long for me and it is a little too long to understand. The film is an interesting subject. I would recommend this film to those who are interested in religion and the people who live in a different culture. However, I would not recommend it to those who have a strong understanding of the religion.

I have never seen a documentary like this before. I think I saw one or two a year before but this is definitely one of the best. I was not expecting much of this film and was pleasantly surprised. I really liked the way it was shot. I was surprised how well the movie was edited. I also really liked how the director used some of the same shots in both the documentary and the movie. I thought the performances were great. I would definitely recommend this to anyone who has ever been in a similar situation or is in a similar situation. I also think this movie is important because it shows what it is like to be a child in a country where people don't really care about you and you have to fight to keep your voice heard. I highly recommend this movie.

I read the book, and really liked it. However, the movie just seemed to be missing a key element that was very much needed to get the book to the screen. The movie was very sad, and there were a few parts in the movie that made me cringe. The book was much more "sad" and it was very "sad" to see the characters suffer. The characters were not what they were in the book. They did not have much of a role, and it was not even that the characters were doing what they did in the book, it was the entire way the book was presented that was missing in the movie. The only thing that made me feel sad was the death of Charles Dickens. The movie is a little disappointing, but it is a movie that I enjoyed, and it is nice to see that the story of Charles Dickens is told.

Saw this movie yesterday, and was pleasantly surprised. I was expecting something like this: An actor is playing a movie in which the main actor is an Aussie actor playing an Aussie actor. I was completely wrong. The characters in this movie were so real, that I found myself enjoying the movie. And I was impressed that this movie was made by the same people who made "The Happy Prince". The actors were all believable. I don't know how to describe this movie, but I will try. It was very funny and romantic. There were a few scenes that were very heart warming, and the romance was very sweet. It was very touching. I would recommend this movie to anyone who loves love stories and movie adaptations.
