    My Sister's Keeper, der, im Jahr 2009 erschienen, von Nick Cassavates gedreht wurde, handelt von einem Mädchen, dass vor Gericht zieht, um lebensqualitätseinschränkende Operationen an ihrem Körper zu verhindern. Denn sie wurde als Retortenkind für ihre im Sterben liegende Schwester gezüchtet, um lebensrettende Organ- und Knochenmarkspenden zu ermöglichen. Ihre geschockten Eltern legen Protest ein und möchten sie daran hindern, ihren Selbstbestimmungsanspruch zu verwirklichen.

    Diese Grundkonstellation ist recht interessant, da dieser Aspekt der Gentechnik bisher unzureichend beleuchtet wurde, doch nach der…

    Multiple character voice-overs do not translate well to film, at least not in this case. But at least the makers of the film had the courage to go for the ending Jodi Picoult chickened out of.

    What I got to say about "My Sister's Keeper" is such as sad. The performance in this movie is powerful and really breathtaking. The directing Nick Cassavetes well I got that he really make understand how life really is. The score is really outstanding. Special effect is okay. "A really good movie."

    This review may contain spoilers. I can handle the truth.

    Caught this on TV. 50% of this movie is montage.

    I feel like the big reveal diverts attention from the fact that two people basically raised a child to harvest her organs. That ain't right, no matter how you spin it. I wish they'd have just let Anna retain her agency and awareness that her parents were treating her like an organ farm, instead of making it so her sister put her up to it and Kate comes out looking…

    This movie is about cancer, so it's really heartbreaking and depressing and shit!

    Are you crying yet?

    Oh, you ain't crying yet?

    When you have so many interesting ideas in a film why the fuck would you go for the easiest option and put in a plot twist which makes absolutely no sense.

    "I'm going to see Taylor"

    That, ladies and gentlemen, is tied as the best attempted suicide line alongside "I CAN'T GET THE CAP OFF".

    When handling subject matter such as cancer, it's very hard not to make it come across as being emotionally manipulative. To me, very few movies achieve the feat of making the emotion feel genuine and the some movies that do so are among the saddest films I have ever seen. 50/50, Me and Earl and the…

    Le droit de décider du sort de son propre corps, la capacité de discernement et la maladie sont les thèmes principaux évoqués ici.

    I don't think I have ever seen a film this heart-warmingly beautiful before. Utterly poetic in every single little movement it makes with utterly stunning performances to ground the totally not forced emotion in the real world.

    I balled like a baby watching this and you all too should see this absolute masterpiece. It's one of the most important and defining films of our time that handles its subject matter with grace and elegance. In terms of cancer films, this makes Ikiru look like The Bucket List.
