Juggling angry Russians, the British Mi5, and an international terrorist, debonair art dealer and part-time rogue Charlie Mortdecai races to recover a stolen painting rumored to contain a code that leads to lost gold.
An unfinished film about a woman in a remote village, who dies only to rise from her coffin during the funeral. The woman is heralded as a saint, although it turns out she has a rare disorder that slows the heart-rate.

When Richard leaves the chancellor's office and stumbles outside, he hears the campus bells ringing. This is a symbolic reference of a line from a John Donne work regarding humanity and death: "...for whom the bell tolls; it tolls for thee." Later in the film, a copy of Ernest Hemingway novel "For Whom the Bell Tolls" can be seen on a bookshelf in Richard's office. He then tells Peter that he wants to see the campus bells. See more »
Shortly after the professor finds out about his disease, he stomps into the campus pond, cursing and kicking. At some point, he falls and, as we see from above, is submerged at least up to his neck. We see quite an amount of water splashing on him, wetting his shoulders and the back of his jacket right up to his head. In the next scene, however, only half of his torso is wet - to the upper half of his chest - while his face, hair, and shoulders are completely dry as if he had gently walked into the water and sat down.

The person one loves at first is not the person one loves at last. Love is not an end. It's a process through which one person attempts to know another.
And, in a word?
In TWO words, deceptively simple.

"Why do we float through this weird thing called life without living?"
Be yourself. Be true to yourself. Don't settle for what you are not. Quotes from this movie resonated with me. My mind has been wandering on lines like: "Why do we float through this weird thing called life without living?". Live life and don't simply exist. Like the Professor says: "You got one shot at this. Don't let a moment of it slip by." A genuine performance by Johnny Depp and the whole cast. I enjoyed the writing. With the emphasis on observations and the thoughts of the mundane, relationships and the honesty of people. It also includes the best acting I've seen from Danny Huston. I full heartedly bought his friendship with Depp's character. The story starts with a slightly quirkier tone, but gets more and more real as you get to the second half. Depp plays the broken man and you can see that pain and regret in his eyes. A very human story that eventually tugged at my heartstrings. Some scenes could have been handled differently during the first half. But the deep thoughts and confessions presented later was able to bring it all home. I do feel better for having been on this little journey of a man and his emotional bender. It's very unfiltered, so it's definitely not for too young minds. You gotta be somewhat ready the face hardships of existence. While not perfect, the director and the whole crew still made one thing very clear: That this one was from the heart.
