Great review, love this movie! There is a pretty big error though, none of the extras are in high definition as stated.

But... Mr Bracke mis-typed the phrase, "oft-putting," when he meant, "off-putting (last sentence, paragraph 3). A minor quibble about an otherwise perceptive and well written criticism.

Can'tsay i liked this movie at all as a movie.

Found it rather boring and unistresting for the most part.

The beautifull kate winslet and her sex scenes made it worth a watch but a purchase this is not for me

I have never been so bored watching a movie in my entire life. The acting was fine, but the movie itself just couldn't hold my attention. Maybe I just wasn't in the right mood. Perhaps I'll revisit it on HD.

hey, whats worse than killing 6 million Jews?
Spoiler
illiteracy!


but seriously though it was a decent movie just because of the acting everything else was pretty bland and i have some problems with some of the changes from the novel

Spoiler
in the novel Hanna reads books about the holocaust while in prison so then it actually gives the impression shew found out what she had been a part of and giving her reason to want to kill herself, instead the movie decided to mostly focus on THe Lady and the Little Dog... yeah...

and i also think the amount of nudity is manipulative

I agree to most of what Peter had to say in his review with regard to the movie itself; the rating, however, should be one star higher. I personally would have awarded the Oscar for Best Movie to this one rather than to Slumdog Millionaire without a moment of hesitation. It is a by far superior, oscarworthy film in every aspect.
