In one scene where Oskar and The Renter discuss 'the search', Oskar wears a turquoise hooded sweater embroidered with a small "Nike 6.0" logo (at 01:13:08; left chest). Nike did not release their "Nike 6.0" line until 2011. See more »
There are more people alive now than have died in all of human history, but the number of dead people is increasing. One day, there isn't going to be any room to bury anyone anymore. So, what about skyscrapers for dead people, that are built down. They could be underneath the skyscrapers for living people, that are built up. We could bury people 100 floors down. And a whole dead world could be underneath the living one.

Extremely Loud Incredibly Close was a terrific movie, the movie was full of terrific actors that played their parts right. The storyline, on the other hand was okay, it was planned out great but there could have been more visuals to it. The main character Oskar, was a great actor he put so much emotion into the movie and made you feel the same way or like you were in the same situation. The movie put so much emotion towards 9/11 and the effect it put on family's.
The movie was very emotional.....it made me cry in so many scenes. It had was full of sorrow in most scenes. The actors were doing everything amazingly and were what made this movie a tear-jerking experience. Being based on the tragic 9/11 moment that changed everyone in anyway. It was a passionate movie.
Being such an emotional encounter, the movie changed the way I looked at life. Personally, it brought me closer to not only family but God as well. The movie had such a beautiful effect on me, it made me realize how lucky I am to have a mom and dad, to be more thankful about my life and the people in it. This movie made a big change in my life and I appreciate the effect this movie put on my life.
