A good movie about humanity
23 April 2005 | by (Turkey) – See all my reviews

If you feel like getting a bit sad, and are ready for a slow paced movie, than niceland is a very good option for you. The story of the mentally retarded boy and his encounter with a man who is frustrated at the world is rather an interesting one. As you watch the two helping out each other, you realize that people can learn something from each other regardless of their intelligence or age. Even though there is not much action involved and it gets a bit too slow sometimes, it is worth to watch it. The actors in it are quite astonishing, almost making you feel like they have been through the characters lives themselves. The director should also be commended for the choice of actors. There weren't many interesting shots and none of the technical stuff really caught my attention. However, the story is a very good one and includes a great deal of criticism for the people who are locked up in their own small worlds.
