liza minelli in "a matter of time"
5 January 2011 | by (honolulu, hi) – See all my reviews

"if you're not an original, you are nothing." OK, so i don't remember if that was word for word but hands down, the best quote ever. i loved it! but that being said, i do think this movie could've been done a little better. yeah, we get that nina got to be as great as the contessa said she would be from how the beginning of the movie starts and through various flash-forward clips throughout, but i would've liked to see how nina got to be that way after the contessa died. or even to just see more moments of nina and the contessa together, the contessa teaching her "the ways," because there weren't really enough scenes or incidences that showed the two together, only that nina grew to love and really care for the contessa. but i did love the movie none-the-less. i want to be a contessa when i grow up!
