unforgettable!unbelievable! i've seen all the invisible children today at the movies,today was the premiere. i enjoyed a lot,and every part stuck in my mind,and i remember even the words that the actors have been saying. especially John Woo,Kusturica,Spike Lee, and Silva- oh gosh, don't have words to express .just feelings. the part by Kusturica-Blue Gypsy,is charming and very funny,and by john Woo-is amazingly seriously and with hope. By Spike Lee-touching and really impressive,and lifelike. thanks to all the directors who have made such a masterpiece. i will never forget this movie. hope soon we will see more movies like this one,because it touches on the problems of nowadays life,and its really gives you a chance to think!
