Excellent
23 November 2014 | by uuziaaSee all my reviews

I went to watch this movie with my mom. We both loved it - excellent actors, thought-provoking concepts, and HILARIOUS lines at times. My mom was glad to show me a piece of her life - socialist realm she remembers from her youth. I was glad to share with her a bit of my life - I am not a doctor, but a researcher in a medicine-related field.

This movie was needed. I am looking forward to English translation, I want to watch it with my friends who are also scientists. I needed to see this to remind myself why I do what I d, I'm sure they will too. The guy transplanted a freaking HEART without even having a computer or freedom, I can as well suck it up in my lab.
