5.0 out of 5 stars The darkness in their souls... One of the best films ever!, 31 Mar. 2015
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
I have seen this film few years ago and I remember it had a huge effect on me. It is powerful and with strong bitter aftertaste, although weirdly very optimistic. I have watched it again the other day. And it had exactly the same effect on me, even stronger, because now I am a changed person myself and can "see" more. The story itself, the cinematography, the absolutely masterlclass acting makes it an extraordinary, unforgettable experience of a life time. Almost every decade there comes a film that shakes you from inside out. This is what this film is. At least for me. It is a fantastic study of humans, their nature, their obsessions, the darkness in their souls. Absolute must. They should show this film in film academies in Hollywood. And Hollywood itself should think more carefully next time they spend hundreds of millions on stupid blockbusters. Please, do watch (support) more independent cinema! This is where the real Soul is the Producer. Thank you Ricardo Darin, Juan Jose Campanella and the whole brilliant cast of this Masterpiece!

3.0 out of 5 stars Sadly not very multidimentional views and knowledge. Expected a lot deeper spiritual journey!, 18 Feb. 2015

This review is from: I Am [DVD] [2010] (DVD)
It is a film, through which the good nature of its maker transpires, but it is made solely from the light polarity point of view, that everything is love and good, which of course it is NOT the dominating force on Earth, as we can all see only by turning our heads around. Therefore it isn't the truth, but some sugary, unrealistic vision of it. This is a dangerous drug that lifts you up and makes you hopeful for its duration and then you have to face the reality again. If only it was made more radically, with a bigger picture in mind, explaining the existing Paradigm, rather than what we want it to be, it would have been a very good film. Shadyac can give me a call if he wants to make a really, really deep film with relevant and enlightening information (for this planet)... How many people exactly you've made happy by moving to a caravan and giving up your comfortable life? It just doesn't work this way. Dear Tom, giving up your wealth it does not automatically get dispersed to the poor around the world. With the advantage of who you are and the resources available to you (and I don't mean money) you could have made a very interesting film.

Nothing new under the sun, and very flat writting indeed...in my opinion. This author is not a writer and it shows. The text didn't move me at all, didn't teach me anything new and exciting, and definitely did not inspire me.

This review is from: The Legacy [DVD] (DVD)
It wasn't bad, but don't expect it to be even remotely as good as The Bridge, The Killings and of course Walander. The main actres, (Gro) was good and showing lots of layers of her interesting complexed character.The younger one (Signe) however, was really flat and not showing any emotions whatsoever. She couldn't even play "upset". Very unmoving performance... Poor casting indeed. The rest of the cast was alright. Good acting most of the time, but bad script. Not an interesting story in my opinion.

Interesting book. Still, the reader is advised to keep their mind open, but.... not exposed!
