This film does a great job of showing how a life can change dramatically due to two people. The life of a teenager and the life of a father. The film works wonders on the young lead character (and others) of the film. The story flows well, it is easy to follow. The cinematography is beautiful. There are many funny and touching scenes in the film. The film moves along nicely. The writing is excellent and most of the dialog is very well written. The film is worth watching. It is a good film. The young lead is a great character. The father (the film director) plays his part very well. It is a great film that is worth watching. If you want a good film about life, watch it. If you want a great film about life, watch this film.

I just happened upon this movie on TV, and thought it was extremely well written and acted. The story is well developed, and the actors do a wonderful job of keeping the audience interested in the action and story. Very good job done by the script writers.

I was intrigued by this film when I first saw it last year, and to have it again has made me much more enthusiastic about it. It is a story of mourning, of being the other, of the loss of innocence, and of the necessity of the other. The story centers around a young woman, Sandy, who has lost her child. She has no regrets about it, but she understands that the other she can never have. She is an old woman, and she is trying to maintain her composure in the face of loss. She spends a lot of time wandering about, while waiting for her child to come home. The old woman has a young child, and she is trying to maintain a stable relationship with the child. She does this by waiting. The man who was to become her husband, has given up his job, and he is trying to get a relationship with the child. It is difficult, and painful. The movie is slow-moving, but it keeps you on your toes. There are many scenes, as well, that are fascinating. I do not want to give too much away, but I want to say that this is a real and original story. I recommend this film to anyone, but especially to people who are interested in movie making.

The story of "The Other Story" is about a very young boy (Kermit the Frog) and a very old man (Charles Dickens) who is about to die, and as a last act of kindness they leave a message on a boat that the last day of their life will not be the last day. Kepa, the youngest, knows the message is from a friend of his, and as a result decides to take a message to him. He gets a letter, and there is only one thing he can do: he must get the letter to Dickens. As he is a frog, he knows how to retrieve the letter from the river and bring it to Dickens. The boat takes them across the river to the bridge. Just before reaching the bridge the boat breaks in half, but Kepa saves the boat. He goes to rescue the boat, and when he is about to get the letter to his friend, he discovers a man tied up on the bridge. He kills the man, and brings the letter to Dickens. I was reminded of the story of "The Tender," which was the inspiration for this film. The film has a very interesting script. It is very touching, and is filled with a lot of heart. The actors do a wonderful job. Kermit the Frog and Charles Dickens are perfect. The young actor who plays Kepa does a wonderful job, but I think this is really David O. Russell's film. The only problem I had was with the ending. I don't think the movie should end. I have heard that the director made a decision to end the film with a question mark on the screen, and I disagree. There should be a question mark on the screen, and Kermit should have seen the end of the film. I think the film should end with Kepa and Dickens at the end of the letter. The only other problem I had with the film is that the film is set in the 50's, and it is set during the Depression, but at no point did I notice that. Overall, a wonderful film.

As I have not seen much of Bruce Springsteen, I can't really compare him with others. I have seen many of his albums and was shocked by the quality of his music. I thought the DVD was not so good, because it was so poorly edited. Also, the voice of Elton John, whose music is a sort of element in the songs, was very under-utilized. I was surprised by the song "I'm An American Girl," which was actually great, but the other songs were terrible. I did not like the guy, but I guess I liked him better than most people.

This is my first review on IMDb. I am a big fan of the OSCAR-award winning documentary film "The Other Story". I have been following the progress of the "The Other Story" since it was screened at the Tribeca Film Festival. I have never heard of the author of the book. Nor did I ever heard of the film, until I came across the trailer on Netflix. I was intrigued by the premise, and did the research on the author and the premise. I was very pleasantly surprised at how much I enjoyed this film. What I liked most about this film is the performance by the cast. Michael Keaton is great as a father who is able to express how he feels about his son. Robin Williams shows that he has tremendous talent as a writer. He is able to write a moving, but non-bawdy script about a man named Henry who is dealing with his mother's death. Robin Williams was also nominated for an Emmy for his performance in this film, which should be a cause for celebration. The Oscar nomination was a surprise for me, because I thought he would win. Elizabeth Banks is also very good as a mother of the main character. The last actor I thought was very good was Harvey Keitel. The last word of the film, and what I liked the most about this film, is the cinematography. I think the cinematography and the acting was top-notch. I was impressed with the camera work, and the intensity of the camera work. I think the camera work was very well placed and very detailed. I also liked how the film moved very quickly. The camera moves are very fast and very intense. It just made the movie more real. It kept me connected to the movie and the characters. The soundtrack was also great. I was particularly impressed with the soundtrack. I like how the music made me feel the mood of the scene. I also thought that the film was very well directed. The film did a good job of moving the audience along with the movie. It was fast-paced and very intense. I was also pleased with the way the film followed the subject matter of the book. Overall, I was very satisfied with this film. It was highly entertaining and very thought-provoking. I would recommend the film to anyone who is a fan of Michael Keaton, Elizabeth Banks, Harvey Keitel, Robin Williams, and also the cinematography and music.

Amazing little movie that deals with a very personal issue. A woman who had a terrible past which brought her to a point of extreme depression. Now a young man who loves and knows her tells her that he cannot take another shot at being with her. A strong friendship grows between the two. The man is not afraid of the girl and in a short time all the inhibitions are lifted and she is fully at ease with him. She tells him that the only thing she wants is to be loved by him. His response is to help her understand that he can never be as happy as she is. He helps her see that she is more than what she looks like. She realizes that she has to accept that she is not perfect. This movie does an excellent job of showing what this woman goes through as she tries to decide what she should do with her life. The cast is amazing. I don't think anyone in the movie could have been better than the two main characters, James Franco and Emile Hirsch. They bring their character to life perfectly. The story is well told and you will be surprised by what is happening in the story. I recommend this film to anyone who is interested in a good story and can handle some strong subject matter.

This movie is a classic of cinema, that will stay in my heart forever. I truly believe this is the best of Depp, Bridges, Harrison, and especially Sheen. This film is just beautiful. It's both dramatic and funny. The production and editing are incredible. I'm surprised this film has not been released on video. And this movie is just a must see! 10/10

I have always found Jack Nicholson's acting to be an asset in his films. So it was with great interest to see him doing another one of his films, but knowing that the previous films were strong enough to carry a whole film, I really had no expectations. But the material was so good that I couldn't help but want to see it. While I'm not a big fan of the conventional Jack Nicholson, he still did a fantastic job in this film. In fact I really felt that he was the heart and soul of the film, and it was very apparent when he was in a scene or when he was in close proximity to other characters. We see him acting in this film as a person, not just as a movie star. I thought it was great to see a film with a character, that is human and real, and one that is a little more flawed and troubled than the norm. So this was a very good film. In conclusion, a great film. I recommend it to anyone who enjoys Jack Nicholson, or, more specifically, Jack Nicholson, because this film will change your life.

The film was entertaining and deeply touching. It is the kind of movie you want to watch more than once and keeps you interested. I think it's a movie that will draw you in and stay in your heart. There are many viewers who are not really interested in movies but when they watch this one they are reminded of their own journey. I watched this movie with two of my best friends who are gay. We were all very moved by the end of the movie and the way it reminded us of our own feelings.

A series of vignettes, filmed in sequence, each in isolation, are told in a coherent, thoughtful, and easy-to-follow way. The film is shot in broad strokes, with characters slowly unfolding and following a simple path. The character development is top-notch, from delicate and thoughtful relationships with others to the time-wasting, long-distance relationships between individuals. And when each individual finds out about the truth about what happens to the other, they each are shocked, and tear up, and start arguing. It's powerful stuff. I was afraid that the film would be too long. But it isn't. Instead it ends abruptly. The characters are still as strong as they were before the incident, but they are still having a hard time adjusting to the other world they live in. I was disappointed that the film didn't show the eventual truth and destruction of the relationship, but it was necessary for the film to have its proper ending. It's a great film, well worth seeing.

This is a movie that should have been released in 1974. It's a slow paced, beautifully done story, with wonderful acting, and some really touching moments, like when the man gets hit by the train and is saved by a little kid. It's a story that is meant to be true, but it's a very strange, twisted, odd kind of tale that you have to see to believe. It's really weird and mind-blowing. I highly recommend it to anyone who likes slow movies. But definitely be prepared to think about it for a while.

This movie is good, I recommend it to everyone, especially to those who hate the current US movie media. One thing I would like to say, if you liked The Fugitive, you should like this one as well. I liked this movie, I do not like the other ones, I really do not know why. Maybe because it is a new release, maybe because it is a remake of a classic movie, maybe because the actors are too young, maybe because the director is not talented, I don't know. Whatever it is, if you like the oldies, this movie is for you.

This is the best thing I have seen in years. The movie begins with a character named Homer Watson (George Takei), who's taken in by a wealthy family named the Watson's, in a house called "A Mixture of Villains". He's raised by them until he reaches maturity, after which he returns home and enters the world of crime, in the world of vampires. Homer's actions are viewed through the eyes of his father, played by David Paymer. When Homer gets the opportunity to be the sheriff of the town of Silverton, he refuses. He then has to make the difficult decision to become the sheriff and will not accept that at all. He then meets the ever-dutiful and determined Maggie, played by Denise Richards. Maggie has a crush on her neighbor, Jules, played by Brion James. They become close friends and ultimately become a couple. When the town becomes a vampire den, Homer, Maggie, Jules, and some of the town's residents try to get the townspeople to take action. This is a very subtle and mature movie. The movie is very dark, and to me, that made the movie even better. There are moments in the movie that are scary, but are done in a way that will be shocking to some people, but also to me, will be very disturbing. The acting was really good by the entire cast. The movie, though light, was very emotionally charged and is very special to me. It is very realistic and that is really, really important. I can not say enough how this movie was made. The acting was top-notch. Everyone in this movie did a great job. This was truly a special movie. The setting of the movie was beautiful. The town was beautiful and the settings were done really well. I recommend this movie to everyone. There are parts of the movie that will be very disturbing to some people, but it was done very well. It was an excellent movie, and I highly recommend that you see it.
