MY REVIEW
It is interesting business movie. They could hold the climax till the end.This movie is about how the world has forever changed and how you are pretty much fucked. That is astonishingly epic if you ask me. Honestly I too lot of time to even understand why the company become bankrupt.

After meeting Matthew, Sister Helen agrees to serve as spiritual counselor and see what she can do to stay the execution. However, Matthew’s claims of innocence seem shaky at best, and it’s clear he’s a reprehensible, amoral racist

MY REVIEW

This movie is one of the best I have seen!! But he had a very powerful ending. I was in tears after he confessed. This movie requires a lot of empathy for both the killer and his victim’s families to be truly appreciated. If you see life in black and white this is a good film to challenge how you look at the world. This is classic movie.Sean Penn is great. I am seeing all the old movies I missed in life. What a great actor Susan Sarandom is.

MY REVIEW
It’s a great story. But it reveals the painful reality of time and reminds us to live our lives to the fullest, to embrace the love we see in the people around us, and to understand the world we live in and the oppressive system of time. Absolute creativity in the sory . Kudos to Kazuo Ishiguro. I have not read the book but not sure whether they should do justice to book. I think the scenes are well taken and it is sad but could understand well
