This is mature cinema

Cheshmane John Malkovich is a very passionate story with a lot of sad moments.

from the opening scene to the ending credits, I was hooked with this film! It's a terrific and brilliant mix of drama, action, and characterization.

I have watched it 3 times and I really enjoyed it.

The most entertaining sequence is where the little guardian angels are at Lysvani and the old Fris is teasing them.

The kids, all of them, turn in outstanding performances and the main characters are characterized with a lot of depth and passion to their personalities which make you feel you have always known these people.

Excellent remake of a wonderful story.

Deeply moving and beautiful What can I say more? I LOVE it! 8/10
