Opinion on the movie.
11 May 2007 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The movie "Take" is definitely a brain teaser type of movie. I went to see it at the "Tribeca Film Festival" and I really enjoyed it. Its very interesting how it only focuses on the two main characters and how it goes into the present and past and then you end up in the future. Its very fascinating because the movie kind of takes you into a journey into the lives of the main characters Saul and Anna as we see what happens the day that everything changed for them. And its interesting just to see how each of their lives are so different, yet the same in a way. The most important part of the movie and probably the biggest lesson of and in real life is forgiveness. Can we forgive that easily? I found it very interesting. I really enjoyed it, the cast and crew did a wonderful job with it.
