I was not expecting much from this movie. I saw the trailer and thought it would be another mindless adventure that people on MTV would enjoy. I was right. This is one of the most original, witty and well made films I have ever seen. I am now going to watch it a few times a week to keep up with it. I'm not sure if it is really for me, but I am sure it is for some. Maybe it is just because I like watching films in black and white, but for me it was definitely worth it. I love everything about this film, and would like to know how people feel about it. I truly believe that this film will touch many people in different ways. As of right now, it is the only film I have ever seen that is being nominated for an Oscar. I think it is safe to say that this movie deserves it. I hope the Academy will honor it with the nominations it is getting. I'm not sure how much of it I have seen, but I can honestly say that it is one of the best films I have seen in a very long time. I'm sure that anyone who is into adventure and comedy will find this film enjoyable. This film is full of positive and funny moments, and definitely an example of a "feel good" film. I think that many people are being affected by this movie and that I would be the only one who does not enjoy it. It is also very sad to know that all of these people who are suffering from mental illness are also losing their lives to the media. It is heartbreaking to see that so many people are dying because of the media. I do not want to be a part of that.

Great movie. I was really shocked at the end. I had no idea this movie would be so good and would go on to win the Palme d'Or at Cannes. Some of the reactions I had were "OMG what is going on". The whole movie has a melancholic feeling. I never felt bored in this movie. At the end I felt more happy than sad. I'm so glad that the music score was great, I can't stop listening to it. I also liked the acting. The girl who played Diane (and the little girl who played her sister) were great. The rest of the cast were also great. This movie is very entertaining and never gets boring. The way the story unfolds is very artistic. I also think that this movie is very unique and that is a plus. I recommend this movie to anyone. It is a must see!

The film opens with an engaging 'party' sequence. There are some few other scenes as well. This is very informative for people who want to know more about the working class and how they struggle. There are some scenes where the subject of the meeting of the workers' union is touched upon, which show a real reaction from them to what the rich capitalists want. It also shows how the poorest and most downtrodden among them are brought into the fold by the way they can get money from the rich and show how workers are not simply spectators, but actors in the great drama of the whole capitalist system. The boss is a very revealing character, just a reflection of the class system as it is. The film is very well directed. The documentary approach gives a more human feel to the story, showing how all the workers' lives are linked up. The protagonist is Diane, a single mother of a girl. She is suffering a lot from the loss of her daughter. She is very devoted to her daughter and her husband is not doing enough to support her. In the film, she gets her way to save her daughter's life. She tells the doctor how she was out with her friends on a Saturday night when she got her daughter a polio. The doctor doesn't believe her, so she is referred to the daughter's family. The family are so devoted to their daughter, but have no money to pay for her treatment. Diane is the only one who understands what the situation is and even though she is clearly poor, she goes out to get money for her daughter. The doctor doesn't even see this as an option. The scene with Diane and the father is very moving. She's shown to be extremely patient with the father. He's a very good man, but he's also the employer of the daughter. It is Diane who finally becomes his confidante and goes back to him to get some money. The doctor shows Diane how little she's getting paid and how she is getting her daughter to the hospital. She finally stands up to the boss, the father and the daughter. She is well loved by everyone. The director's approach is very good, showing a character in the film who is both flawed and loyal to the people around her. The film makes you feel for the character and see what she's going through, especially if she has no money. This is the kind of film that makes you think about class and how people are treated by the system. A wonderful film. I recommend it for everyone.

I had a chance to see this film in person yesterday. I was impressed by the quality of the film and the performances. I thought it was an excellent portrayal of a complicated life and of a person who, as the film portrays, is simply "a human being who can't get out of the ordinary". A good job of giving the movie a realistic feel. It had great comedic value, as well. I feel that every part of the film had a certain personal resonance to it, which was more than I can say for any other movie I've seen in recent memory. I liked that the film was realistic in a sense that it was not a "monster movie", as we often hear people say. The fact that the character of Diane was the only human being, one of many who were hit by the plague, could only be described as believable. It was not a movie where the zombie would be the "hero" of the piece. It was a movie where the main character was the person who fought off the virus. The acting was great. I thought Susan Sarandon was superb as was Matthew Broderick. I think that the character of Cathy could have been better developed, but the acting was good enough. I think that everyone who had a chance to see this movie should see it. The acting, the writing, the setting, the scenery and the overall cinematography was all excellent. I had a wonderful time at the theatre yesterday and am looking forward to the next screening.

The scenes were so rich, we could see how each character played a part in it, and we can't forget the amazing chemistry between everyone in this wonderful film. The music was perfect, and I think it was the most realistic movie soundtrack I've heard, it really made me feel the emotions the characters were going through. It was the best thing I've ever seen in my life. I was completely swept up in the movie, I was laughing a lot, crying, being so grateful for the person I was to have this experience in my life. Every time I walk out of the theater I can't stop thinking about the movie, I just feel this deep connection with it, and it truly does feel like I'm living that moment right now, I just want to thank everyone for the amazing movie.
