And yeah i have managed to finally see this movie! How can i describe it: I loved the colours, the images, the dialogues, the game with in and out of focus with the camera, the drama, the protagonists, the dog and of course the story as a whole! It's about life and death, about relationships that go through different stages in different times. It's about changes throughout history, it's about overcoming fears, about love & magic that some people have and it's also about looking for happiness! I cried with Ewan Mcgregor but I also felt happiness, i really got into his unique love story with cute Anna (played by French actress Melanie Laurent) and into his relationship with his mum when he was a kid and into his relationship with his dad when he came out of the closet at 75 years old. Ewan's dad is played by Christopher Plummer, he is damm good, he plays such a good role. I loved the way the story was told going back and forth in time and showing pictures of the past and sometimes even only colours. If you want to feel and a movie that makes you think, this is the right one. While watching this movie I thought of so many things of my life.., it was so real..
The movie is now in the cinema, at least in Ireland, it's not a commercial one and maybe not for everybody ,it's more for sensitive people who like stories being told in a different way.
