I didn't realize it was a Spanish film until after I had watched it. All I know is that it is one of the greatest films ever made in my opinion. The story was simple and the acting was great. It is one of the best films ever made. The last scene is absolutely incredible and the way it is depicted is just wonderful. I could watch this film over and over again and never get bored. I highly recommend it. This is a film that any person of any age would enjoy and anyone who watches this film with a serious attitude and desire to understand the meaning behind it will be able to understand it.

This movie has a strong cast and an interesting story. It's not great but it's not bad. It's a good movie to watch if you want to relax with some popcorn and some good Mexican food. I recommend this movie to people who like a movie that is a little different from the norm.

I was expecting the usual off-the-wall B-movie movie for one day and this was the one. I thought the film would be just another excuse to show children acting funny but it wasn't. The special effects were very good. I found that even though the story line was thin, it was very interesting. Some of the characters I found quite interesting. In some parts it was hard to understand what was going on. I also thought that the music and sound effects were very good. I think that the soundtrack is very important to a film. So I highly recommend this film to anyone who is interested in Mexican films. I would also recommend this film for those who are looking for a good movie to watch in the cinema.

I can only say that I was pleasantly surprised to see this film get a theatrical release. It really struck a chord with me. What starts off as a dramatic tale about the brutality of war and the horrors of war is really more of a story about the corruption and depravity of the military and the culture of the military and its soldiers. It's an old story, but it has been told so many times and with such a lack of understanding that it is a little bit hard to tell it without being old hat. It is a really good story, even if you know it is from the great Russian novel, the book it is based on, it still works. The acting is absolutely superb. Any actress can play any role, and the actors in this film have done a great job. The location is magnificent, the acting is terrific, and the directing is incredible. It is a beautiful film, and a truly beautiful film.

An amazing film, which I discovered just the other day on a cheap DVD, so I decided to buy it to make sure it was the same as the one I had. I can say this, without any doubt, is one of the best films I have ever seen. Brilliantly directed, written and produced, the film is a real tear jerker, and is well worth the watch. The acting is amazing and the dialogue is very well written and intelligently delivered. However, the real joy of the film, and the reason to go watch it, is the cinematography and direction. I am not a particularly great fan of close ups of people, but this film is so engrossing that you become completely engrossed in the characters and their situation, that you don't notice how much you are being manipulated in the process. I am absolutely thrilled that this film has been allowed to become a success on the internet, and have seen it with so many others. I have been amazed by the positive feedback I have seen for this film, and can't wait for it to come out on DVD. I highly recommend this film to anyone and everyone. I give it an A-.

A major cinematic achievement! "The Greatest" is an astonishing film with a very powerful story. The narrative flows at a very fast pace and at times it is difficult to tell who is who. It was a little confusing because there is not really one particular person that is important and which is important. However, it was a very interesting story with a very interesting ending. The storyline can be categorized in three parts: 1. The opening which tells the story of the woman who is kidnapped and killed by a group of assassins who want to kill her father, and later on by a group of women who want to take revenge on the men who killed her father. 2. The plot that starts with the woman who is taken to a nearby town and the men who killed her father. 3. The end which is very similar to the opening part but at the end of the film the people who killed her father are actually killed by the people who kidnapped and killed her mother. The beginning of the film may not be that good but it is a very strong beginning and a very strong ending. The story of the woman who was taken to the town where the men killed her father is very sad and the story of the man who was taken to a nearby town and the people who killed him are very sad. The ending is very similar to the opening part but at the end of the film the people who killed his father are actually killed by the people who took his mother. The film was excellent and I am very proud to be in a film as an independent director and producer. To sum it up: A very important film that deserves to be seen by many people. The movie was very well made and I would recommend it to anyone.

This is a great film, a great character study. What makes the film so great is the way it handles the two main characters. I mean, one can never be sure which character is the main character, as the narrator (Fernando Rey) gives us a lot of information about the events that happen during the film. But this is why this film is so powerful, the way he explains to us why he is going through the way he is and gives us a lot of information about the main character. The way he says all these things is fantastic, and this is what makes the movie so powerful. I really recommend it to anyone who likes a great story about a man who is in a terrible situation, who is looking for a way to keep his soul in order and to live his life without regrets. Watch this film, it's one of the best movies I have ever seen.

I've been waiting for a long time to see this movie, and now I finally do. The cinematography is very brilliant, the film is beautifully shot, the story is very well thought out and the actors are absolutely perfect. It's a great film, and I recommend it to anyone who has any interest in cinema. It's perfect, and it deserves to be in the top 250.

What a fantastic film. The acting, direction, and cinematography are all fantastic. The characters are well thought out, the action is intense and it's extremely disturbing. It is a crime film, but it is a very realistic one, in that it is filmed in an almost documentary style, as if the director/writer is only interested in the story, not the effects. All of the characters have been carefully and thought out, which makes for an interesting and interesting film. As for the film being able to link the homosexual and the heterosexual, it is true, but the acting and writing makes this very clear. The reason for this, is because the two main characters are almost all homosexual, and the only time the main character would be gay is when he was visiting his girlfriend. The other time he was straight, he would be gay. Also, the homosexual characters in the film are not portrayed as gay, but rather as men with emotional issues that need help. This is the best film I have ever seen, and I am a big fan of the movies of Federico Fellini. To summarize, this film is extremely disturbing, but it is also a realistic crime film, that only ends up getting more and more disturbing as it goes along. This is a great film, and I urge all of my friends to go and see it.

Coco Adlon, who has lost his family in a tragic accident, decides to leave his job as a teacher and to try to make the life for himself. He goes to an asylum and gets the opportunity to work as a porter. Soon he gets a chance to be with the mother of the girl of his dreams, who works in the asylum. This is a film with a lot of very special moments, but also one with many other ones, to which we do not forget. The stories of people who are driven to desperation are very memorable. There are a lot of questions that remain unanswered, but the film does not disappoint. When I saw the film I was really touched by the emotions it evokes. The young boy, being a man who was struggling to find a way out of the life he has lived, is a strong voice. His words are very profound, especially when he tells the mother of his dreams that they are going to get married. The mother is moved by this, but is convinced that it will be a mistake. The mother thinks that the boy is just a boy, but we see that he is the son of a great man, so the notion that the boy is just a boy and that he is not really a man cannot be ruled out. There is a moment when he tells the mother that she is going to become a woman, and when he meets the other women he finds out that they have lost their power. This is also a film about being human, not about being a good person, being in love, and wanting to give it a chance. There is much more in it. There are several scenes with real sadness and hope, and a lot of memorable moments, in particular when the father has a vision of the world, that is very touching. Another of my favorite scenes is when the mother tells the father that they will never have another child, and he goes back to the hospital. He feels himself losing his humanity, but he has to face the truth. It is a very beautiful moment, and the father who has lost everything, tries to express the pain of losing his wife and his child in a very beautiful way. It is a very touching film, not only because of the emotions evoked, but also because it is a very moving film about family and loss. The film was well directed by Pedro Almodovar, and the cast is superb, especially Miguel, who is one of my favorite actors, who plays the role of the father very well. I really liked his acting, and it makes him one of my favorite actors. There are a lot of beautiful shots in the film, in particular the ones in which the father has a vision of his children. I also liked the scene in which the father has a dream that he is dead, and it makes the film very sad. The shots of the father lying on the beach are also very interesting

This is a true story about a young man who saved many lives in an avalanche on Mt. Tenga. And it's a great story, filled with awe and amazement. The story is about a young man called Joaquin, who had a heart to heart with a friend, Luis, and they had to get married to hide the truth about their love. The story is an inspiring tale about love and courage. It shows how a person can change the world and give up everything for a family. I recommend this film to all who like beautiful and heart warming stories.

When we went to the video store we were very much disappointed, with no possibility to rent, we decided to buy it anyway. There was nothing to choose between this and "Piazza Nereverte" but we chose it. We have just watched it now and it is worth seeing and buying. I repeat the above words because you don't have to believe me, you can see for yourself. It is a good movie, and it is one of the best films in the last years. And one of the best of the Spanish films, I repeat. We recommend this film to every one, because it is a good one, if you like cinema, you can find many reasons to see it. And it is good for everyone. You can read the book "La Iglesia de la serpiente" before the movie or you can rent the film before the movie, but do not expect a real historical movie, because this is a very good movie. 10/10

In the midst of the chaos of a city where a number of gangs are vying for control of the drug trade, a detective named Dora (Ana Ferreira) is assigned to investigate the disappearance of a young girl. A search ensues, and the police are more interested in the drug lords than in the missing girl. A number of interesting characters are introduced and then quickly forgotten about. The story is not particularly interesting, and there is no real tension. However, the performances are great, and the cinematography is quite good. I would recommend this movie to anyone who is interested in the drug trade, as it is a very interesting and well-made film.

La Terza Nuova: The Angel of Death is a fascinating film that makes you feel as if you're part of a historical journey that will leave you surprised at how much it has affected you. Its unique and powerful storyline is told through a series of vivid and fascinating images and scenes, with all of the characters having an unforgettable story to tell. The camera work is especially beautiful and powerful, with a unique and mesmerizing style that will leave you awestruck, never once thinking "what the heck is that?" The way that every character is introduced to the viewer is also a powerful and unforgettable part of this film, giving us a sense of a very specific time and place in a very specific era, with each character living their own kind of dream. The cast is incredibly strong, with a formidable cast of actors and actresses that every one of them are superb in their own way, and especially with Lila's incredible performance that could have easily been overlooked, but is one of the best performances I've ever seen in a film. I can honestly say that this is the best film of the year, and will definitely be one of the best films of the year in the future. I would highly recommend this film to anyone looking for a film to be deeply moved by, that will make them feel the sense of nostalgia, and will also leave them feeling inspired for a fresh and engaging story that will be a true masterpiece. I strongly recommend this film to anyone that likes Spanish cinema. 10/10

In a world where so many films and books of such a high quality are released, it is amazing to see such a low budget film. This film is an ideal example of such a low budget film, and is simply outstanding. The story is not long, but that is not its point. The viewer is taken on a journey of betrayal and moral decay, the characters are a handful of men, women and children, who are forced to flee the country, and their paths cross with others in a world of despondency and fear. A world where war is not a possibility, and where even the families who survive the war are in a state of constant fear of their own future. A world where the young are exploited to death, and the old are utterly humiliated, but where the biggest fear is that one day, the young may once again fight for their freedom. This film is not only an eye opening study of human nature, but also an insight into how terrible war can be, and how there is a potential for good to triumph over evil. There are no hero's, and no hero's are shown, only one man, and a number of other men. This is an important film that shows that, while war may be a terrible thing, it is something that is unavoidable. We have no choice but to face the truth, and take responsibility for the consequences of our actions. I would encourage anyone to watch this film, but not for the sake of the film itself. It is a powerful film that needs to be watched, and should be viewed as an important warning against the evils of war.

I've been reading some of the other reviews here. I would like to say that I agree with a lot of it. But it was not the movie's fault. The movie is very well done. Yes, the scene of him, the car, the phone, the "snake" girl, etc., could have been better done. But this is a film, not a science fiction movie. It's more of an adventure movie, with an excellent story. I really enjoyed the way the movie ends. I also liked the ending. I would like to say that I am not a foreigner. I am an Argentinian. I'm not Italian, Greek, Spanish, or anything like that. I was surprised by the way the movie ended. I really liked it. You will like it too. The music is great. I also really liked the cinematography. I have seen quite a few great movies and I never look at the camera. I always look at the other person. I liked this movie. I think this is a very good movie, no matter if you are a fan of the story or not. I would rate it 9 out of 10.

A truly great movie. It is basically about a group of people who are forced to live on an island, just to survive. Not one of these people wants to leave, because their lives depend on it. It's a shame that this movie isn't known outside of Argentina. It's a story that everyone can relate to. It doesn't tell you what to do, but it tells you how to feel. And that's the best part of the movie. I hope that someone will translate this film into English and get it out to as many people as possible. I hope that we will one day have a world where everybody can relate to this movie. It's not just about one island, but about all the people who live on it.

I have seen this movie about 20 times. All the time I look for new things and the way this movie is played is a masterpiece.The movie is beautiful. The story is great. The characters are so real and the role they play is so wonderful. In the end it is so well organized. The way it is played it makes you fall in love with the movie.It's a little gem.

I really don't understand why people are so hard on this movie. This is one of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen. It's a film that is very touching and it's one of those movies that you can watch over and over and never get tired of it. I really think that this is one of the best films of the year and I don't think that there will be a better film of the year next year. I don't think that there is a better film of the year than this one. I really hope that everyone will see this movie because it's so beautiful and I think that everyone should see it because it's a beautiful film.

This is the second film I have seen by the director of 'The Eye', the first being 'The Unbearable Lightness of Being'. I was expecting this to be a good film, but it was not. The plot is simple: a young woman is kidnapped by a gang of criminals and they threaten to kill her unless she gives them the name of the man who killed her father. The woman, who is also a journalist, goes to the police to get the name, but she is not able to find it. Then she goes to the media to get the name. The police are unable to find the man, so they start a search for him. This is not a very exciting plot. It is slow, and it does not have a clear point. It is not a very interesting film. I think that it is more a drama than a thriller. The acting is not very good, and the story is not very interesting. The film is not very interesting. I think that it is a good film, but not a very good film.

I have always been a fan of the Coen brothers, and this movie was definitely a treat for them. It's a rare movie to watch, and I can't imagine anyone not enjoying it. The movie is a strange mix of high and lowbrow humor, and while it does a great job of using both genres, it is still mostly a movie about humor. It's not a movie that's great to watch in the theater, and it's not a movie that's great to watch in the theater when it comes out on DVD. The movie is a little slow to start, but once it does start, it's a joy to watch. It has a lot of scenes that are not meant to be funny, but they are funny. The film is definitely worth watching, but if you are expecting a comedy, then you'll probably be disappointed. It's definitely a movie for people who enjoy humor.

I am not usually one of those guys that follow every new Bollywood release, and I'm a huge fan of classic films, but I was pleasantly surprised by the quality of this movie. I was impressed by the dramatic talent that all the actors used in this movie, and the originality of the script and the story. I'm a big fan of American movies and of good Indian movies, so I was impressed to see a movie that is both American and Indian, and that is so well made. I can't wait to see more films from Bollywood.

I am an extremely big fan of Argento's films. If it's Argento I'm watching, I'm not really watching a film, I'm watching an artist. I love the way he uses the camera, especially the way he uses the film. This is one of the most stunning films I have ever seen. The shots are just so perfectly executed and almost surrealistic. This is a dark film. The camera moves slowly and slowly, and there's almost no sound in some of the shots, because everything is so intense and loud. In one scene, there is this scene where the camera is following a truck, and this truck is just so tense and takes every shot, which I actually have the movie on tape. The music by Argento is just amazing. I really love his way of putting music together with the story. He uses music to make things feel more intense and to really make you feel for characters in the movie. He uses it in certain scenes to really affect the characters and really push them. One of the best movies I have ever seen. A must see for any Argento fan.

The war of God comes with the outbreak of World War I, and the Catholic Church is fighting to save the souls of the victims. It's the last war to not start in Europe. The Church's priests are split between devoutly fighting for God and the Father, or the souls of the dying. The battle between the Church and the Father is a rare example of a spiritual battle, and it can be compared with the battle between the Church and Christ in the last days of the Crucifixion. The battle is between faith and the Church. It has some parallels with the battle between God and the Devil in the bible, with Jesus fighting against Satan. The battle is hard and violent, and the priests are willing to go through many difficulties to save souls. The battle is real, but not what you would expect, and I think that is the message. The Church and the Father are not completely bad people. They are more human than most people think, and the Father has a deep love for his church. This is an important message that comes out of the battle, and the film is wonderful for this message. I think it has many other messages, including the need to fight for your faith and to fight for what is right. It is a spiritual film that is excellent for everyone, and a great film for those who like religious films. I recommend this film highly.

I don't know what happened in this movie. I did not expect it to be this good, but it was. It was an amazing movie, with great characters, great story, and amazing acting. I found myself almost crying in some parts, not because I had emotions, but because of the incredible emotions the characters were able to portray. This movie has a great story, I think everyone should see it at least once, and most probably again. It is a must see, because I can't explain what happened in it.

This is a movie that is about the life of a young man, Diego, who is a man who loves to take things for granted. When his wife is killed, he feels that he has to do something about it. He goes to a monastery in the mountains and he joins the monks in their daily prayer. He makes a vow to help his fellow man. I liked the movie because it shows a life that we would never see in a movie. It shows that sometimes we need to do things for ourselves and not for others. The movie also shows the beauty of nature and the beauty of man. I like the way that the movie shows that we can take things for granted. Sometimes we do things that we shouldn't do. Sometimes we should do things that we shouldn't do. This movie is a good movie that you can watch over and over again.

I went to see this movie on a rainy Saturday afternoon and was very pleasantly surprised. I had heard about this movie and thought it was going to be the same kind of movie as 'The Human Centipede' (which I didn't really like). I thought the movie would be about some girl who has a kind of tummy condition and is in the hospital for it. I was very wrong. This movie is about a girl who goes to the hospital to get an operation on her stomach. I can't say much about the movie because I don't want to give anything away. It is definitely worth watching. If you like horror movies, this is a movie you should definitely check out. If you are looking for a movie that has a lot of gore and is a little slow to start, then this is not the movie for you. I have to say though that I think this movie is much better than 'The Human Centipede' because it is much more intelligent and has a much more realistic story. I give this movie a 7 out of 10.

The film is based on the true story of the "Dirty War" in Central America in the 1980's. The film tells the story of two brothers, who are the son of a former CIA agent, and their family life in the small town of El Abrazo. The story is told through flashbacks and the characters are very similar to the characters in the book. The film is not too violent and it is very well acted, especially by the two brothers, but it is still a very good film. The film is worth watching.

In the early part of the twentieth century, a young woman arrives in a small Spanish town, living in a convent, and is suddenly confronted by the existence of an evil, alien being, that inhabits the town. This is a strange and intriguing film, that has been compared to Alien and The Thing. I don't know if it's a good film or not, but it is worth seeing. The acting is good, the story is intriguing and the special effects are impressive. I would recommend this movie to anyone who likes Sci-Fi or Alien, but I think it would be good for the general audience. I give it a B+.
