A very odd movie. I am usually not an avid fan of sad movies. Most of them leave me with a sour taste in my mouth, but I was really impressed with this one. I like movies that make me think, and I think this is a good movie to start with. The movie isn't perfect, but it is good for a start. The story is a bit strange, but I liked that, because it made the movie that much more interesting. This movie really reminded me of some Japanese movies I have seen. My advice: If you have a chance to watch it, don't miss it!

A woman's life is turned upside down after she falls for a man who is cheating on her. Once she learns the truth about her husband she leaves him, she starts to take steps towards becoming a respectable woman. Now it is up to her to fight her life and make a difference for the better of herself. The story is very interesting and interesting to watch. It does not have a happy ending as most films like to. I definitely recommend this film to anyone. It is a very good movie to watch. I give this film a solid 7/10.

I went into this movie not knowing what to expect, but it was completely worth it. This was an interesting take on life and death. The movie is a true story, but the twists and turns you would expect would be missing. But it doesn't matter because what matters is that this movie made me care about the characters and I was involved with what was happening. The story is great, but the fact that the characters are so different makes you care about them and makes you feel what they are feeling. A little annoying that you have to wait a long time to see a character die, but it is forgivable because the rest of the movie is such a pleasure. The actors all did a great job, especially the elderly actors who are the real-life family of one of the characters. It was a bit slow at times, but the ending is great. If you like stories of life and death, this is a great movie. It is a tear-jerker, but it is so different. I have watched this movie about a dozen times and I can't help but love it.

This was a very interesting and engaging film. I won't say it was "hilarious" because it wasn't, but I found it to be entertaining and interesting. It was not "perfect" however, because it didn't focus on the families in which the events took place, but rather on the relationships and individual's that existed between them. As such, the time that was devoted to the families could have been used to provide more time for the relationships of the individuals. But it did not. It was a great movie, and definitely worth seeing. 7/10

Federico's image of Christ in his hospital bed is a familiar scene from much of the Italian cinema. With Federico, there is no image that can be matched. The feeling of losing a human soul, however, is almost an addition to the film's plot. And as an added horror element, the idea that people want to treat a person as if he were a piece of meat, their being the only object on which they can project their emotions is very touching. The central figure, Federico's character, whose suffering comes to a climax, is a love-struck young man, who tries to make his patient a son, but he comes to realize that the patient is incapable of feeling the way a son can, so he becomes a murderer. As a result of the role of the patient, Federico is also a major figure in the film. This becomes clear from the beginning of the film, when Federico tries to kiss Federico's wife, and Federico's wife becomes very upset. The climax of the film, however, is the confrontation between Federico and his wife, and we see how the path of self-destruction, of abandonment of love, of madness, of a being who wants to be loved by everybody is becoming all too clear, and how the love of his wife is just a means to that end. It is also interesting to see Federico as a real person, not an image of the Christ of the film. He is a kind of an emotional cripple, the weak man without self-confidence, and at the same time he is not an angel, but a man who is willing to break through to the light, and becomes the sacrifice of his wife. The plot is very powerful, and the message of the film, however, is extremely painful. The people that are hurting Federico, are his wife, his patients, and his patients themselves, who are willing to be cruel to him. He is a man who is not willing to be harmed, but rather, is a man who wants to be treated by the world, and is the only human being that will treat his sick and dying wife. The film itself is a very moving experience. I saw it when it was first released, and it has never left my mind. Federico's performance is also impressive. In spite of Federico's sometimes gloomy character, he manages to make us sympathize with him, to feel some of the sensations of pain and despair he goes through. Even in the film's bleakest scenes, Federico is able to display the vulnerability and fragility that he is feeling. But the film's message, as well as the message of Federico himself, is more of a warning to us: it is almost impossible to heal people and, if you try, you will end up doing the same things that you have already done.

This is an extremely realistic movie. The protagonists, the reactions to the war and the recovery are all quite accurate. It was a bit hard to watch the different layers of "life" in wartime Germany. I suppose the story takes place mostly in the young men's minds. I personally did not see anything wrong with the girls and the women. It seemed realistic, though. At least we could see a lot of character development in this film. Also, the characters are not shown to be either good or bad. They just are. The most interesting character is the mechanic. He is shown to be a completely different person from the rest of the crew. He doesn't really seem like a heroic character, but I guess we could call him a hero. As for the real story, I guess it's a bit tough to pull off an actual war movie. The situation of the soldiers has changed very much since the war started. They are used to being in their barracks, not being in combat. They are used to fighting with machine guns, not with grenades. I suppose the story could have taken this same approach, but it would have been a bit awkward. Nevertheless, the real life characters are portrayed quite well. Also, the soldiers are shown to be very tough, but not as violent as they were. It's rather like the war was just a part of their lives. In summary, I think this is a good movie, it's definitely a movie I would watch again and again. It's well-acted, the story is realistic, the characters are well developed, and the settings are realistic as well.

I first watched this movie on a rainy day on my TV and wondered if I missed something or if I had missed something. The only thing I saw was the end credits and I noticed that I had watched something special. I sat down and watched the rest of the movie. I thought this movie was so interesting and unique. I was really interested in the storyline and all the characters. I even liked the story because of the way it was told. All the characters were so different and fascinating, I couldn't tell who was who or where they came from. I was in awe of all the characters. I thought the movie was about a small town and the high school. But the main characters are different and they all have different motives. The story was so original, it was more like a novel. I was completely enthralled. I recommend this movie to anyone who likes different movies, or just people who want to see something different.
