After a horrific car accident, Anna (Ricci) wakes up to find the local funeral director Eliot Deacon (Neeson) preparing her body for her funeral. Confused, terrified and feeling still very much alive, Anna doesnt believe shes dead, despite the funeral directors reassurances that she is merely in transition to the afterlife. Eliot convinces her he has the ability to communicate with the dead and is the only one who can help her. Trapped inside the funeral home, with nobody to turn to except Eliot, Anna is forced to face her deepest fears and accept her own death. But Annas grief-stricken boyfriend Paul (Long) still cant shake the nagging suspicion that Eliot isnt what he appears to be. As the funeral nears, Paul gets closer to unlocking the disturbing truth, but it could be too late Anna may have already begun to cross over the other side.

AFTER. LIFE features Christina Ricci (SLEEPY HOLLOW, CURSED, THE GATHERING) as a woman named Anna, who dies in an automobile accident. Perhaps? Definitely? I guess. Liam Neeson (DARKMAN) is the undertaker, meeting Anna in the funeral home, while preparing her body. Meanwhile, Anna's boyfriend Paul (Justin Long from JEEPERS CREEPERS, DRAG ME TO HELL, etc.) becomes increasingly convinced that Anna isn't dead. Of course, we know she is deceased... er, Maybe. AFTER. LIFE is a tale of remorse, regret, and hope for a second chance. A lot of people seem to not like the way it ends, but I enjoyed the whole movie. The fact of a naked Ms. Ricci posing on a slab, and slinking about had no influence on my vote. Well, maybe a little...
One of the best thrillers and love stories (combined) that I've ever viewed. The trio of Liam Neeson, Christina Ricci and Justin Long makes this a superb thriller/love story that is a must for all of the people on this planet that have been afraid to love. This flick has a profound statement to make...not just a thriller...not just a relationship gone south because of emotional drain. All 5 stars. I can see why others would not give this a high rating. It's very deep (no pun intended) and it's not a film to watch for pure entertainment. It's a mind trip.
I'm writing this review about the 1st 45 minutes of the film. It wasall i could take before i got too embarrassed watching it. I hoped it would be something like The Butterfly Effect or JacobsLadder. Looking back i feel a little silly expecting this knowingNeeson and Ricci were running the show. It is just awful.They had a good plot but didn't know how to make a story around it. Wayto fast the movie works up to the death of Ricci. After some hilarioustwists she end up in a morgue where she keeps walking around indisbelief slashing knifes at the funeral home owner. Ricci is soirritating that you wish she played a corpse for the rest of the film.Neeson plays every part in every movie the same way: as himself. The plot, the characters, all of it gives the impression that it ismade on a rainy afternoon with nothing to do and some left over budget.
It's a breath of fresh air to see a film with great actors, a great story, and great twists and turns. the direction is superb. Miss. Ricci is wonderful as always and yes she is seen in the nude through most of the film, but her beauty plus her acting is just marvelous. I highly recommend anyone who has a sincere desire too see original movie making at its best. I also recommend this film to people who have an obsession with death weather your terrified of it "as I am" or in reality you really don't care.
This review is from: After.Life [HD] (Amazon Instant Video) Eh... It's okay. Christina Ricci does her thing where she's good at playing a corpse (see everything she's ever done) and Liam Neeson is appropriately creepy which is a cool role for him. I think what made it worse than it needed to be was Justin Long. He was just kind of whiny and I really think the lead could have been casted better.
"Afterlife" is about what people think about how it would be in theafterlife, when in the truth no one really knows.For me this movie appears to be emotional, it is more about letting goof your old life and accepting death. This movie made me cry, i reallyfelt how hard it is to lose someone you valued so much and thinking itwas your fault. What made me decide to give this movie a 5/10 ratingwas why do the both of them need to die. I was expecting that PaulColeman (Justin Long) would eventually move on with his life.Well i didn't quite understand the horror part of this movie, i haven'tfigured it out yet, if their deaths has something to do with EliotDeacon (Liam Neeson) or not.
This review is from: After.Life (DVD) Don't like the movie and the end is very bad. The story is very tempting to watch but I regret it after I watched it.
This review is from: After.Life (DVD) I notice that the ratings for this film are pretty widely spread and feel compelledto add my two cents.Personally, I found this movie engaging from beginning to end, with a story thatis not a retelling of something I have already seen. Personally, I like a goodambiguous horror story and this one fits the bill. Even after watching it (butbefore watching the commentary) I found myself wondering what the "real" storywas. The director;s commentary and a featurette do give it away, though thereare still several plot points that are not really explained that leave one wonderingexactly how the events could have taken place.Since the plot is already pretty well outlined above, there is little point in repeatingthe details here. All I can say is that I found the performances good and thestory interesting enough to make me want to watch both the movie and thecommentary.
The dead often speak to us in different ways.AFTER.LIFE concerns, we assume, a dead young woman, a school teacher,who debates with a mortician over whether or not she is indeed deceasedas he prepares her for her own funeral. Director Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo fashions quite a morbid tale aboutthe importance of appreciating life when faced with the imminentapproach of death. Is Anna(Christina Ricci)in that state between lifeand death or is the mortician, Eliot Deacon(a creepy Liam Neeson),harbouring sinister secrets?Justin Long is Paul Coleman, a promising lawyer who was Anna'sboyfriend. Paul wants to see Anna one last time before her funeral, yetEliot insists he can not due to his not being a member of the immediatefamily. Paul, however, has convinced himself(with help from a childstudent of Anna's, Jack, portrayed by Chandler Canterbury)that Anna mayin fact be alive and will attempt to "save her" without much help. I would suggest, if you do not want all the answers, to avoid the DVDinterview with Agnieszka Wojtowicz-Vosloo because she pretty much tellseverything. But, she certainly cast plenty of doubt Eliot's direction;he seems suspicious enough. What we see happening as Jack startsattending funerals and talking with Eliot is the possible"indoctrination" of another into the fold..Jack might have the same"gift" Eliot has. Or does he? Lots of questions arise as to whether or not Eliot can speak with thedead or if he's simply not who he says he is. Ricci spends a lot oftime either naked or in a red nightie so those who wish to seeAFTER.LIFE just to get their rocks off will have plenty of motivationto do so. There are long, lingering shots of Ricci, even if she carriesan appearance of someone who had recently died(there are signs shemight be "held hostage" through psychological means), her naked body'sform is positively beautiful.Long gives a strong performance as a desperate man who alienates thosearound him because he wishes to convince someone Anna might be aliveand in need of assistance, with the obvious reaction of "you need tolet go and accept her passing" from those who know him.I imagine Neeson will make many viewers skin crawl, he had that effecton me. There's a contempt in his voice when Anna questions hermortality, and he is skilled at preying upon her vulnerable state, ableto somehow avoid times when she could actually kill him(she does, atpoints in the film, get her hands on scissors and a butcher knife). Ithink that's the lasting power of AFTER.LIFE, that we feel stronglythat she should do whatever she can to escape, but each and everyattempt fails mostly because Anna herself perhaps buys a lie due to thesuccess of Eliot's methods of persuasion.Kudos to Ricci for such a difficult part, she had to remain in variousstates of undress for quite a bit of screen time, but, to me, sheseemed quite comfortable with her body(which only benefits her manyadmirers). The subject matter is quite provocative and disturbing, so Iimagine some viewers will find AFTER.LIFE a bit tough to take.
Is the film perfect? No. It takes risks and it's different from anyother film you'll have seen in the last ten years. The look of the filmis stunning and the director creates an unsettling sense of dread thatpermeates the whole movie. The acting is first rate, in particular LiamNeeson (and Justin Long will surprise many of you). I gave it 10 stars for its originality (I'm tired of the samecookie-cutter movies and remakes) and the story not only made me thinkabout my own life but also stayed with me long after I saw it. The director is clearly very talented and I can't wait to see what shedoes next.
"After.Life" is a unique viewing experience for fans of horror movies or anyone looking for a film with plenty of twists and mystery. With actors such as Liam Neeson, Justin Long, and Christina Ricci, the film does contain a high quality set of actors that deliver their roles and emotions perfectly. The story is graphic and full of mystery. However, this is where the problem of the film begins: it's plot is two-sided, trying to play with the minds of the viewers on two different levels.Advertised as a "supernatural horror" film, "After.Life" tries to balance two different plot lines at the same time. The story begins with an elementary teacher named Anna (Christina Ricci) who seems unsatisfied in her relationship with Paul (Justin Long). She never appears interested in anything that Paul has to say, and it's quite obvious to the audience that the couple is having relationship problems. After depicting the two of them in bed with one another, the film quickly cuts away to Anna at work, where a little boy seems to be a complete outcast from the class and from his own family. The boy's name is Jack, and his only friend seems to be his teacher Anna.Anna has to leave for a funeral for her deceased music teacher and Jack wants to tag along to see his first funeral in person. Anna persuades the child to go home, even though his mother is shown simply watching television in a trance, unaware of the existence of her own child as he comes home. Once Anna arrives at the funeral, she meets the funeral director, Eliot Deacon (Liam Neeson). Deacon appears to be fascinated with Anna. She leaves the funeral home and goes to meet Paul for dinner.After Paul announces that he received a job offer in Chicago and would be moving, Anna goes into a fit of rage and storms out of the restaurant. In her chaotic state of mind, she gets in a car crash and is pronounced dead on the scene. The film cuts to the next scene, showing Anna lying on the metal gurney in the basement of the funeral home. Anna's controlling and heartless mother blames Paul and appears unfazed by the sight of her dead daughter.Here's where the film tries to play to two different plot lines at once. It appears as if Anna is not dead, seeing how she is capable of walking and talking, yet it seems as if only Deacon is capable of hearing her. Paul does not think that Anna is dead, and is in a desperate struggle to prove that Deacon is not the man everyone thinks he is. The film tries to make the audience think that Anna is in fact dead and that Deacon is the only character capable of speaking to her, while at the same time making the audience think that perhaps she isn't dead at all. The film's plot is quite difficult to understand at first, but with subtle hints here and there, it becomes clear what the truth about Anna's state of being truly is. Liam Neeson does a great job of playing a role that feels quite out of character for man usually enlisted for roles in films like "Taken", "Batman Begins", "Star Wars" and "The A-Team". However, he does a great job of portraying a dark, twisted character in a very convincing manner. At times Liam makes Deacon into a character that the audience may feel sympathy towards, while in other scenes he is displays a creepy demeanor that can send chills down the viewer's spine with his actions. The director and writer tried to make both sides of the plot feasible, however, this leads to a lot of distractions and confusion for the audience, and a second viewing is probably the best manner in which one can fully comprehend the film in its entirety. Some plot holes hold back the film from being truly spectacular, such as when Deacon is told to by Anna's mother to dye Anna's her back to its natural brown color, there are still scenes afterwards in which Anna is shown having red hair despite the fact that the film already had Deacon dye it back to brown. These are details that the director probably should have paid more attention to when filming, but it's a minor annoyance more than anything else.Overall, the story of "After.Life" will keep the audience on their toes, guessing at every turn what will happen next. Is Anna really dead and Deacon has the special ability to speak the deceased, as he suggests or is something deeper and more gruesome occurring? "After.Life" is a film with enough suspense and mystery to warrant multiple viewings, all of which will provide further insight on the happenings of the story, making it even better as it begins to expand with each successive viewing session. An excellent film with a dark, haunting ambience, powerful plot, and superior acting. "After.Life" is worth checking out.
A woman, Anna (Christina Ricci) wakes up in a funeral home and is toldby the undertaker (Liam Neeson) she's dead. Debut filmmaker AgnieszkaWojtowicz-Vosloo sets up an interesting premise, and as the storyunfolds we're never quite sure whether Anna is indeed dead, and unableto come to terms with her death. Or whether she's in fact alive, andthe victim of a very sick undertaker. You'll have to watch it yourselfto find out the answer, and there's enough twists and turns to keepmost audiences guessing until the very end.The film is well made and ambitious for an indie film. The directorhandles the genre scares and thrills with the assured skill of aveteran, yet refreshingly poses some interesting and awkward questionsabout life and death and the fragile line that separates them. However,the main reason I've given this film an 8 rather than a 9 or 10, isthat I'd have liked to have spent more time on the intriguing questionabout what happens when you die. It's a powerful question. I suspectthe producers were more interested in genre scares than thoughtfulanalysis. Still an amazing film and one I'd highly recommend
I saw this on tv and I missed the first part. The part when I started watching was when Anna was in the funeral home, wakes up and wants to know what she's doing there. The funeral director tells her she is dead and he is there to help her accept her death and make the transition. To help her...he does absolutely nothing, but put her down. When she says she can't be dead because she is breathing, he angrily says, "You people!! Just because you're breathing, you think you're alive!" (Or something to that effect.) He seems to despise dead people that he claims to have so much compassion for and want to help them to the other side. He always refers to them as "You people!!" He also is very negative: "There is nothing left for you here."Spoilers:However, I never thought she was dead. She was whacking things around, and the funeral director, Deacon, did not like this at all. He didn't like that she got up and walked around and argued with him. He seemed to have so much vested interest in her being dead, that I never believed anything he said. So I believed that she was alive and he was trying to make her think that she was dead, so that he could kill her and bury her, because he really liked doing that sort of thing. The funeral home was in a creepy old mansion (which would have been good in an old scary movie), and he lived there also. He had a bunch of photos of "dead" people on his bedroom wall that he talked to. He believed he was doing something useful in killing these people (or maybe he just enjoyed it and rationalized it as useful) because in his opinion they weren't really living, and they were just taking up space that could be better used by people who really did want to live. And he, Eliot Deacon, is the one who got to decide all this. Clearly a psychopathic egomaniac.The movie itself was not that great. Deacon would come into the room where the "dead" people were lying on metal gurneys, and kind of just walk around and not do very much. Not sure what his purpose was there. He always locked the door, and it showed him turning down the thermostat to 40 degrees. It showed this several times, so apparently it got turned up again somehow.Anna's boyfriend Paul, who she manages to call on a rotary phone, appears to not be able to understand her. He becomes upset thinking it's a prank call. I guess he didn't have caller ID. (Deacon tells her no one can hear her but him.) Sometimes Paul thinks she's still alive and sometimes he thinks she's dead. He talks to the cops about it and they are very rude to him and treat him like a child. Even though one of them went to see his "dead" brother and saw Anna move. He apparently was too stupid for that to register in his brain.There is also a weird kid, Jack, who is one of Anna's students, and who sees her standing in her red slip in the window (with Deacon trying to convince her that she is dead). Deacon convinces Jack that he also has the gift that Deacon has, which is to speak to the dead and help them on their way out of this life. He told him the first was his mother. So did Deacon kill his mother because she wasn't really living anyway?Anna gets brainwashed, without much effort, into thinking that she is dead. Deacon does keep shooting her up with stuff though, apparently making her weak and docile. She never gets hungry and she never has to go to the bathroom. Still, in the back of her mind, she has that belief that she really is alive. When he offers her the chance to go see her boyfriend and tell him that she does love him, she can barely walk. Suddenly she is having some nightmare vision that a bunch of witch-like women are spitting on her and Paul is just standing there watching. Maggots come out of her mouth. Anna quickly hurries back to her gurney and hops on. Deacon jeers at her that he knew she didn't have the guts.A lot of it makes no sense, but maybe it's to knock some sense into you. Jack is a budding killer (starting out with animals) who will now decide who lives and dies, since Deacon told him he can. Deacon has the perfect profession for it. Apparently I missed the part where he causes accidents with his van, in order to get clients.So if you are ever in this situation, and think you are alive, but somebody tells you you are dead, take for granted that they have their own agenda, and get the hell out!
It's a rare pleasure to come across a genre film that's both originaland beautifully made. At one level it's a tightly made horror thrillerwith enough scares and creepy moments to keep the most ardent horrorfan happy. But at another level it's also a thoughtful and provocativeexamination of what it's like to be dead -- or more importantly, whatit's like to not be living.The film starts by following a young woman, Anna (Christina Ricci)trying to cope with her depression and a relationship that appears tobe falling apart, and the local funeral director, Eliot (Liam Neeson)as he prepares for a funeral. The opening sets up a suspensefulinevitability that Anna's and Eliot's paths will soon cross.But it's when Anna has a car crash and wakes up on Eliot's slab thatthe film really kicks into high gear. Eliot calmly tells her she's deadand he's preparing her body for her funeral. Despite Anna's pleas thatshe's still alive, Eliot's chilling calmness convinces us that Anna isreally dead. Eliot has a gift. He can talk to the dead to help themtransition to the afterlife.It's a fascinating premise. A funeral director helping people come toterms with their death and the regrets of their life so they can befinally at peace and move on. Anna asks if she's ghost, and we sensethat perhaps she is. That maybe ghosts are only transitory during theperiod between death and moving on to an afterlife.But as the film progresses, Eliot's behavior becomes more sinister. Andas the film literally becomes darker, Eliot's motives become lessclear. Is Anna really dead? Or is Eliot drugging her so she only thinksshe's dead? The answer is surprisingly evasive. At one stage I thoughtshe was definitely dead but then subtle clues made me think she wasalive... and then 10 minutes later I was convinced again she was dead!The strength of the film is that you're never quite sure until the veryend.The performances were incredible. Liam Neeson's looks were enough tosend chills down my spine. An amazing actor. Christina Ricci was veryconvincing and very sexy! And Justin Long was surprisingly good in aserious role (although the film was also darkly humorous in places).A strong, intelligent story. Great performances. But it was the overalllook that really blew me away. Beautiful colors and striking visuals --especially with Anna in a vibrant red slip lying on a white slab in acold gray room. Stunning! This unusual and very original film will notbe to everyone's taste, but audiences who enjoy thoughtful, provocativefilm-making will be delighted to find something in the theaters that'snot a gore-fest or comic book.
I was hooked on this movie all the way from beginning to end. Thecharacters were enticing, the plot was driving, and the suspense wasamazing. It kept you guessing till the very end...and then it went tocrap. I'm so sick of movies having sad endings, or stupid endings, which isexactly what this movie ended with. Was she dead, alive? What? And theanswer was obviously alive, Liam Neeson was obviously a serial killer,and obviously if Justin Long or Christina Ricci had been any smarter,she would have figured it out, killed Liam Neeson, and we would havehad a happy ending. It just didn't fit at the end with the characters at all. Also, if youwere burying a coffin, 20 bucks says you could hear somebody screamingand yelling from inside of it! Especially if all you've thrown on it isONE shovelful of dirt. The write just seemed to want to end it on adepressing note, which just irks me. Life's too depressing at it is.Could we please see some happy endings on occasion?
The movie seems quite promising for the first part, the event thatopens up the movie draws you in as a viewer, there is a sense oftension, mystery and creepiness. However this seems to dwindle off asthe plot line becomes very rigid and basic, as a viewer I found that Ibecame irritated by the weak characters, that show a lack of depth andinitiative. The element of mystery dwindles, along with suspense andtension - as the movie remains slow, predictable and fairly simple, andtherefore there is no development of any real feeling of worry, anxietyor fear that this kind of movie is supposed to create. On the one handit attempts to be a psychological thriller, however there is nowherenear enough depth to the plot line or the characters to create a storycomplex enough to challenge the way you think or perceive thetopic/personalities/scenario/events within the film which a goodpsychological thriller should do. On the other it attempts to delveinto the horror genre by incorporating dark and eerie elements to theatmosphere, surroundings and movie scenes. Again these really aren'tintroduced in a sophisticated manner and their effects are weak, infact some of these elements are far too disconnected from the actualplot to make sense of them, which only works to negate the effects ofthe potential psychological thriller elements of the film. Like manyother films that are poorly executed, this one seems to attempt toincorporate a whole bunch of elements to a basic level in order to makeup a film, rather than just concentrating on a few elements and makingthem deep and solid, which would have made more impact on me as aviewer overall. The biggest downfall for me was the ending, I am notgoing to spoil by explaining it, however I will say that the ending notonly irritated me to a severe extent, but also made me feel like thefilm itself had achieved nothing and that I as a viewer thereforeachieved absolutely nothing by watching it. The film really required astrong ending in order to redeem itself from the poorness it haddisplayed throughout, and as stated, it didn't. In terms of the scriptI cant really offer much of a comment as I cant really remember what itwas like. Therefore I don't remember it for being particularly bad, butthen again I don't remember it for being particularly good either! Interms of acting, Liam Neeson is definitely in my favourite top 100 andas always I couldn't fault his acting as he did the best anybody coulddo with the character he played. I will fault, however, the fact thathe appeared in a film as poor as this as it really doesn't stack up tothe caliber of any other movie that I have seen him star in. Aside fromplaying an irritating character, Cristina Ricci also acted well in hercredit and I can't deny that despite thinking she is odd looking, I didthink that she looked rather tight in a skimpy dress which for me wasthe only consolation for enduring such a poor film. So because of herthe film gets 3/10 and not 2/10.In conclusion the idea behind the film had potential, however itremained too simplistic and flawed to create any real impact. Ifanything the film overall had a negative impact on me as the ending wasfrustrating.
It's an interesting premise to be certain (perhaps one inspired byscenes in 2001-2005's "Six Feet Under," in some way?), but even withthe acting merits of Neesen carrying the majority of the show,including Ricci's performance at times (literally at one point), Ireluctantly think that its one that might be best buried. Though not atall entirely forgotten.I too was among those who were delighted and perhaps even captivatedwith one of Miss Ricci's earliest "morbid" themed undertakings; "TheAddams Family." As many may remember in that film, Ricci convincinglyplays a very detached, seemingly indifferent and cold little girl.Though a relatively intelligent one.In this story we see her portray a woman with the same characteristics,except for the intelligence. This could be seen as the first of severalflaws in this film, due to the fact that her character is supposed tobe an elementary school teacher. Though while such a position doesn'tnecessarily DEMAND that a person be caring, warm and loving, or an"Einstein" intellectually either, there are some minimal requirementsto making the character a convincing one. Luckily for Christina in thismovie, she spends the majority of the time playing a role that I nowrealize (after still being a fan for so many years) she seems bestsuited for; a corpse.The character's initial lack of emotion and apparent detachment islater elaborated on through the course of the picture. However oneparticularly "passionate" outburst earlier in the film seems noticeablylacking later, when it would/should be called for most. None the less,her presence is again captivating throughout her scenes, but some mightargue its more due to her costume, or lack there of.Neesen's delivery as a kindly mortician who can apparently speak to thedead, is fortunately carried throughout the course of the storybelievably, even to expansion, as an integral point to the plot.While Justin Long's presence in a serious dramatic role might by now bea staple for some, to me he will always project the image of anear-do-well buffoon. Perhaps this lingering impression is from some ofhis earlier roles and thus initially makes him appear ill-suited forthe role required. Though I will now say he does a decent job here inshaking off some of that/those previous character type casts.Overall the aesthetics, cinematography, direction and performances ofthe three main characters are good, to very good. However as touchedupon in the title of this review, as well as my remarks on Ricci'srepresentation of her character, there are several more holes in thisplot than a small town graveyard might be able to accommodate.Still with all said, it is worth taking a look at for the many meritsnoted. Of course fans of Miss Ricci's adult acting "talents" should beinclined to take one more look at "the body," because you never knowwhen, or if, a Hollywood starlet will be buried. Figuratively ofcourse.
I'm surprised that this movie hasn't gotten better reviews. Lot's of people compared this to the Sixth Sense, but I'm not entirely convinced that's a fair and accurate comparison, though the movie raises similar questions. Yes the viewer is often wondering if the characters are alive or dead, but they are also wondering if something much more sinister is taking place.That's what makes this film so intriguing. Lots of questions are raised, and none completely answered. The viewer is left to draw their own conclusions, which may require more than one viewing.Giving the fine performances of Liam Neeson, Justin Long (one of his best performances), and Christina Ricci, additional viewings are a pleasure.Not your everyday thriller, this subtle film is one of the best I've seen in a long time.
Want something to do worth taking up 1 hour and 44 minutes of your time? It's not watching this movie! This was terrible. I could not even stay interested in this movie. I will watch just about anything and I found myself starting to play games on my phone half-way through. No "thriller" aspect whatsoever.Casting? Christina Ricci is perfect for the creepy, pale, dead girl role and she did a good job. Liam Neeson, not so much. If you want to see a good Liam Neeson movie, check out one of his action flicks (Taken, Unknown) - he is much better in that role.Then there is the ending. I still do not understand what happened. I was able to follow "Inception" (for those of you that saw it, this makes sense) but I can't follow "After.Life"? Who knows. I don't want to add any spoilers in my review, so I will leave it at that. It just does not make sense.
I think the movie has a deeper sense. With Anna struggling with what tobelieve, Elliot offers her to walk through the door, after hearing heremotions. Its almost like he had the power to either pull or push you.Depends on his judgment of you. The little kid was really good(creepy). I kept postponing to watch this one for a long time, feelingit'd be just another horror. But it is really a good movie. You reallyattune to every character's emotions related with the decisions theyhad made. And, of course, to the ones interpreting; its deep. A goodemotionally haunting one. One of the good movies I watched ever. Dogive it a try. 10 on 10.
