Not to be missed! Near perfect film for adults, with emotional depth and wallop, masterful structure and stunning B&W cinematography. Like a Mozart symphony or Anita Baker album, no gimmicks or wasted moments, just authenticity: this is the world and this is us in it.
I must strongly disagree with the review - "The stillness also represents a storytelling style that's austere to the point of being miserly. Pawlikowski provides very little detail about the central tragedy." All the story's painful facts are plainly there even if somehow you don't know Poland's 20th century tragedies; it just doesn't condescend to the audience by having characters literally tell you what is right in front of you! Hard to understand calling such a raw and emotional film "cold."
There's no violence in the film but rather the nuanced consequences of its aftermath. The title character was played by a young novice actor and while her role is not that strong, the story revolves more around others in the ensemble who were all absolutely excellent, particularly Wanda, Agata Kulesza . There's no emotional manipulation and yet I found a woman sobbing in the lobby. See this on a big screen while its here, don't wait for the DVD.
This movie is a masterpiece. Not sure why the reviewer gave this 3 1/2 stars, mimicking broken IMDB ratings I suppose, which are skewed anyway based on the sheer # of trolls down voting movies just because.
Oh wow this movie is the worst movie I have ever seen this movie makes someone go in depression at the end of the movie we saw a hand but not the person wow this movie was not expensive at all for the director wow thanks.the lord I i don't have depression because if I had it I would.have been dead
That movie is boring and worst and put me a sleeping I don't come back see this movie ever in my life..
The worst movie i have ever seen
Too many super hero movies and for some reason they all suck and they keep on remaking the same old crap....Heck now days tv shows are better than movies......Game of Thrones....Walking Dead, Silicon Valley just to name a few....and people wait for months to see them and they usually garner millions on the premier night...AMC .FX Showtime,Hbo....these guys know how to make movies..even netflix is doing ok.....but CBS NBC ABC still suk.
Another typical alien movie where the alien is always out to kill off mankind......Why are all outer space type movies have aliens who are hideous monsters who are more advanced than us and want to destroy the planet...that has been done to many times and it just plan old suks. Been there seen that....
What's clear is that this sicko pedophile HOBBS has molested other kids before,and I'm sure since this horrible tragedy!And with an Evil F*CK so central to the case,it's highly unlikely that another unaffiliated one was responsible for this.Then there's the fact that he was sexually abusing the one little boy Stevie, and his sister for years.How's that for a Father Figure!!??!!I was going to say that atleast he has to live with the guilt,but honestly if you really think about it,anyone with that DARK of a soul doesn't suffer the constraints of A conscience,nor anysort of A Moral Compass!!Priority #1 will always be #1!!!Rotten Bastards like these make me hope for the true existence of HELL!!!
I just want to know why Hobbs wasn't put on trial for the death of the brother he shot or for beating up the mom of the boy killed? I agree the justice system is a fucked up one and I don't see how the system was even allowed to make a deal with new evidence proving their innocence and the Supreme Court not doing anything to actually stand up for a half ass justice system!!! Wow, and as long as nothing continues to be done, it is going to continue to be a fucked up system!! Money talks and bullshit walks maybe that will help this fucked up system!!! Maybe money can buy a half ass descent system!!!
Thanks to my brother Udayan for showing me Andy Goldsworthy a few years ago. Then I found this beautiful film. Now I show it to my classes whenever I can somehow work it in!
Great movie and director, we are just celebrating our 10th Anniversary so check out page on our website is entirely dedicated to Mike Leigh.
Great director and what impressed me the most about his work is how he shows total lack of communication between everyone and how impossibility of the change. Check the article we wrote as part of celebration of our 10th Anniversary.

lol they did not provide credible alibis... damien's alibi helped the prosecution more than anything cause none of his "alibis" could account for his whereabouts from 6-9. they only could account for him before, and after those times.
This artist is amazing... I found great pictures of Patrick Dougherty creations in Art Days, here is the link! http://www.art-days.com/patrick-dougherty-land-art-architecture/ Enjoy! :)
"But, like various species of its aquatic namesake, the film is a bottom feeder and a parasite."
Huuummm... desgreed. Most of us are meeting people on the internet and it's natural that after a while we want to get it out of virtual. It's note parasite, c'mon. The gay chose to put himself into the real situatio, as also did the familie, as they are thanked at the end and agreed to be shown, even causing a lot of shame. It's entertaining and makes us think about our own virtual life, sth we cannot deny these days.
