The Greatest Movie Ever Made !!!!!
15 February 2005 | by (Norway) – See all my reviews

"Adopting an off-kilter, slapstick approach to heroin addiction is, in modern terms, about as politically correct as mentioning nipple-piercing in a nunnery. But, then, Adam & Paul – Irish cinema's latest offering – is no cautionary tale…"

This is by far the best movie ever to give a portrait of junkies, this movie goes deep inside and shows it all inside out..

This movie is strong,good script,great casting,excellent acting.. I personally would have ranked it as my favorite's movie, there can be no denying that it is a film at the top5 of my list

Absolutely Heartbreaking,Brutal,honest,and a MUST see movie..!!!
