best movie i've ever seen.
This is a small, humorous movie in some ways, but it has a huge heart. What a nice experience.
This makes me cry every time- whoever doesn't feel inspired has no heart! Chloe Moretz's acting is impeccable. I was so surprised at how well she acted out Mia's passion (The cello). This movie is the perfect balance between a romantic movie and a drama movie. All the important things in Mia's life add up and cause her to stay. It goes to show that you don't always need a real family to have a great life! Again- so inspirational!
Over a period of three years, every member of my family died -- along with my best friend. I, of course, fell into a depression I am still recovering from.It was during a particularly difficult time that I sought counseling services, but they spent my hourly allotment testing me for some mental illness, which I knew I didn't have... So it came down to me deciding whether to continue or whether to quit that I happened to turn on my television set in the process of showing this movie... This movie showed me that at some time in the "eternity," I chose this... I CHOSE THIS!!And when this young girl has her breakthrough, I did, too! They want me to stay...Anyone giving this movie a down thumb... hasn't been in this situation yet.For me, it was a life saver!
I am livid about this movie! I can't get the time I spent watching it back. The beginning of the movie was whatever. It was full of clichés and eyeroll moments. However, the movie grew up a bit. Chloe's character slowly became less annoying and the movie lost a bit of its pretentiousness. HOWEVER, the end of the movie was absolute garbage. The entire movie makes you invested in the relationship between Adam and Mia, then it puts a gun in your face and pulls the trigger. Spoiler: at the end of the movie, Mia decides to wake up, despite losing her whole family. And for what? For her first love, who acted like a stubborn idiot until she was on her deathbed. Yes, he was only happy about her fulfilling her dreams when she was literally dying. This movie is PATHETIC.
OK, this girl has no bad movies.I watched all of her movies, something over 40 if I remember right, and she is at good in every single one and fantastic in some.I'm not watching in chronological order, but every single one I saw so far was at least good if not amazing.And this one may be the best. Story may not be so original, but acting is really good and film can easily make you cry.Loved it. :)P.S. In the mean time I saw Hugo and it's even better movie than this one.
