A story that pulls at every heart string and emotions
30 November 2012 | by (Oregon, United States) – See all my reviews

To be completely honest, I was actually impressed with this film.

A tightly focused ensemble piece, heavy on dialog taking place in the world's greatest: New York City. A young girl, Reina is threatened by her parents to be disowned, if she insists on a career that has seen only 'handful successes and more failures" like filmmaking, instead of doing what usually is the norm -- become a "doctor, engineer or an architect". This is the central theme of the film LIFE! CAMERA ACTION (Love this imaginative title too).

One of the most wonderful things a film can do is be so moving and triumphant that it makes you cry. You aren't crying because Reina is disowned, or discouraged by everyone instead you are identifying with the power of human spirit. To watch how Reina overcomes every obstacle she faces is inspiring. If this movie doesn't get you motivated, then something is wrong with you. This movie has a story that teaches a lesson.

It's a story that pulls at every heart string and emotions you possibly could have. Why? Well it doesn't have to do with the actors, though they all are great. It doesn't have to do with the filming; it isn't what draws us in. It is one thing. One major fact: Story! I am sure it's a Universal story. No wonder, it has touched hearts around the world and won all these accolades. Great job. What an accomplishment!!!

LCA is a movie that gives us something to believe in, something to think about. Never giving up. Always giving it your all. Loved it! I agree with others that ending is a classic. If you like emotional and inspirational movies then I highly recommend you see this film. I hope that you enjoy it. Thanks for reading.
