Impressed - a lesson for all to look beyond the facade,
This review is from: Mask [DVD] (DVD)This is one of the few films which will stick in your mind even after years.
It gives a powerful message for tolerance, for looking beyond the facade and above all love, love that makes people strong and able to struggle against the odds of life.
Cher who seems to embody through her constant plastic surgery and showbiz lifestyle the Hollywood stereotypes and the facade things of life plays wonderfully the mother role, strong when it comes to her son, but otherwise weak and scarred depending much on the love of her son. I was impressed by her.
All other roles are well casted too and the role is a pleasure to watch and I got more and more drawn to it as the plot develops. One becomes quite but in a good way. There is much emotion but never in a kitsch type. The movie touches one deeply.
I can only echo the other reviews and highly recommended this movie. 5 stars!
