Movie Reviews

Essential film
British Commentator | London, United Kingdom | 11/18/2008
(5 out of 5 stars)

"Quite simply one of the most remarkable films ever made.

The true story of an artist who was suddenly blinded without prior warning.

He describes the process of going blind, the changes in his life since he became blind, and his changed outlook on life.

Makes one thankful for every minute of life.

The film is a narrative with atmospheric and emotional music plus scenes relevant to the artist's life story.

It should be shown in all schools to pupils in their early teens.

As important a film as one might ever see.
