    A Thousand Words

    ★★½

    This is definitely among the best or at least the most humorous reviews ever. Great job even though I think the movie is not worth a thousand words.

    I've read this very gentle and beautiful book a year ago and I got astonished by its deepness and beauty. It's a very short book you can read in exactly one hour, but their effects will stay within you for quite some time. Language is so warm and simple. This book celebrates love in all its pureness and magnificence.

    As for the movie, of course it couldn't be as truthful and moving as the book itself, but it's still wonderful. The atmosphere and landscape and colors are just incredible and the story itself is fine enough.

    I've been reading many positive reviews about this one recently, so I've decided to watch it and I don't regret the second of my time. It's truly beautiful and authentic, it warmed my heart. When we look back on our lives, we regret the things we didn't do more than the ones we did. So, never miss a chance to love.

    This is definitely the best Fincher's movie to me because there is no unnecessary scene.

    I've often been criticized for talking too fast but this is the first time I understand why some people can't follow the flow of my thoughts. Jesse Eisenberg is probably the fastest talker I've ever heard.

    Anyway, performances are incredible, directing is amazing, photography is great as well as music, sentences are so intelligent and challenging - I love them!

    Why are people who are mentally stronger than average socially incompetent as a rule? Fuck all the money in the world if you'll end up without your only (honest) friend!
