A perfect film about lives that are being beautifully, and painfully, lived.
This, and the previous few reviews I've looked up, have (sadly) convinced me that IMDb is no longer a credible source for judging 'review scores'.
This films absolutely nails it! If you've reached 45yrs old, (as I have), and made a life, and ruined a life...and made others' lives...and ruined others' lives... then your rating is valid. If, aged 45, you choose to rate this film less than 9 then you've wasted your one single life of 45yrs.
I haven't wasted mine. I've stared down loaded gun barrels into the cold eyes of drunken robbers.
I've dashed myself against the madcap rocks of tear-soaked love.
I've laughed at those who have been weak enough to dare to dash themselves against my steel resistance...and, in time, life has taught me through my heartfelt pain, my utter, utter, folly.
I've had it all whilst blocking what I deep down knew was love. Yes, true friendship survives and matters...but the beating heart of true love has fallen...NO!... been pushed... through my, cursed angry fingers. It is my curse and one I will take to the grave.
Every scene in this film is acutely 'spot on'. The acting is without fault. The interwoven lives are 'spot on'. The tale is without fault.
...as I said, if you rate it less than 9, the weakness is your lack of "life experience".
The failure is yours, and yours alone.
