Forbidden Quest torrent reviews

Thomas P (jp) wrote: 4/5Based on the book of the same name, AMISH GRACE is the highest rated original film to appear on Lifetime (as the dvd box states), and this IS worthy of your viewing. It's a stirring film about grieving and forgiveness set within the confines of Amish life. There's no new ground covered here. They do sidestep many cliches and though certain aspects seem metered out, it's still emotionally satisfying within its explored truths. It relies on the audience to bring a depth of compassion, and understanding of the losses, so it will easily resonate with those who are open hearted.It is handled well, and evenly paced, and is rather moving, especially in the face of the true story it's based on:Several Amish girls are shot and killed in their schoolhouse by a gunman who then killed himself.Never showing the event itself, it deals mainly with the aftermath of the tragedy. You likely saw the story on the news a few years ago. The Amish community forgives and offers help to the killer's shocked, grieving wife and children. (Only mentioned later, the killer and his family had attended a large church themselves.)Amazing, as is the actual story, there are solid, resonant characters added to explore the emotional wrestling perceived to be within the Amish community.Not for every taste, but if this sounds interesting to you, you will LOVE it.=")4 out of 5 teardrops..

Grant S (jp) wrote: OK, but not great, drama. A story that follows the lives of two women, from their meeting as 11-year olds, their resulting friendship, and then the ups and downs of their relationship, careers and personal lives. Decent enough story and reasonably emotional. However, it feels predictable and unoriginal. While emotionally manipulative, it doesn't really offer anything new on the subject of friendship.Also, thanks to Bette Midler's performance, it often veers into comedy space, and over-the-top comedy at that. While Midler is great in these scenes, it does lighten the mood too much.

Romina R (gb) wrote: Siento que lo que le falta a esta pelcula es estructura. Tiene un comienzo interesante, pero despus la trama no va a ninguna parte y la "resolucin", si se le puede llamar as, es completamente insatisfactoria. Los personajes pretenden ser profundos, pero al final son superficiales, slo muestran sus conflictos a travs de lo que ellos mismos cuentan por el dilogo, lo cual puede funcionar en el teatro, pero en el cine termina siendo un recurso pobre. Destaco la actuacin de Anne Bancroft, que se come a una dbil Jane Fonda en cada escena en que estn juntas, pero su personaje tambin es de una inconsistencia desconcertante.

Michael L (ag) wrote: anton walbrook is one of my favorite underappreciated actors and when directed by one of the most ethereal french directors of all time, it results in a fantastic and wonderful journey. the cast is a whos who of french stars and the mood is airy and light with a dash of clever.
