about pain and other drugs
3 February 2014 | by See all my reviews

this film is a masterpiece. not only because the casting/the performance and the directing are stunning. it's more than eye can see/words can say. and definitely, it's not for judges. and not for everybody. just a 'niche'. it is touching and comprehensible and human and not "generaly". doing "what's good/normal/suitable" versus "the feeling, the pure one/the moment in a short human life/ the truth". it's about age? that age that touch, maybe, the body but not the spirit. it's about the capacity of giving/loving without hope, without counting...it's about the pain.

somehow, loving without a future is like living well knowing that death waits at the corner. painful enough. as life itself.

I saw gentleness, delicacy, loyalty, generosity and suffering, friendship and generosity again and human fail. and pain. who's fault it is?

don't know the answer. know only that friendship, love, loyalty and pain, they do exists. tough destiny, after all.

Not enough words to considerate the performance of Robin Wright, Naomi Watts, Xavier Samuel and James Frecheville. Oscars were won for less.

As for the director, such a softness of the regard...perfect screenplay, perfect director cut. much deeper then the words of Doris Lessing, far away of "current diagnostics".
