I'm with you Rosemary!! I loved it & will see it again on the big screen probably this weekend after I read more about it.
I loved that photo show too - great idea for new parents to start on!
There was so much to watch & read & see & hear, overload until I relaxed & went with it. Really took me back to college days where I got started watching foreign films & learning about directors & symbolism & cinematography - this included all of the elements of the real film art works/directors like Fellini (as I said before)- which doesn't happen as often now days I don't think, for many reasons. It picked you up & ran you thru a fast paced life & made you feel the glamour but also the emptiness without having to spell it out. I loved their conversations & when the one kind of neurotic woman kept asking him to tell her the truth but hated it when he finally did - that reminded me of Woody Allen as he interjects those moments of truth that slap you in the face or that everyone wishes they could do at least once in life to someone who's begging for it.
I could have done without quite so much of the religious parts which drag for me always but I understood what he was doing with it & how it tied into "roots" (tradition), etc. but maybe not quite so long. Could have been named Life & Death & Life & Death!!
If anyone wants to see it Sat. night let me know or post it - I'll be ready to see it again by then!

Wow, wow, wow ... what a lavish and beautiful film filled with some really interesting characters & faces.  I loved the narcissism of having ones picture taken daily and then posted on massive walls and so loved how Jep (was that his name?)  is so moved as he watches an entire life pass by him ... just like his.   Really good stuff and oh my gosh the Mother "Theresa" character ... its about roots!!!!    So wish I had seen this with the group and open to hearing your comments ... hope you enjoyed as much as I did.     Thanks for sharing,    Rosemary
