Storyline

The story centers on Veronika, a woman in her mid twenties who appears to have everything: good looks, good job and a great life ahead of her. Yet she decides to end her own life. She is unsuccessful and awakens in a mental hospital where she learns that she has only a short time to live. However in the hospital she meets people who are only 'insane' because they don't always follow society's rules. With little left to lose, Veronika embarks on a journey on which she frees herself to experience relationships and emotions and ultimately discovers what it means to live. Written by Anonymous

A Piece of Art
1 April 2010 | by (Jordan) – See all my reviews

I first read the book when it was released and I thought it deserves to be a movie because the story is so strong and moving. The only question I had in mind in my imagination was; who would be Veronica? Then after they decided to do the movie, it came to me as a pleasant surprise that Sarah was chosen, I was so happy and I loved her since she did Buffy the Vampire slayer. She is fit to the part and she did a good job. This movie is deep and makes you change the way you live your life. It makes you want to embrace life and use every moment and live each day as if it is your last. I hope this movie gets what it deserves because it does deserve the best.
