USA / English

An amazing feat of Cinema
"Remember, remember, the fifth of November, gunpowder treason and plot.
I see no reason why the gunpowder treason should ever be forgot."
I've never read the graphic novel, but I don't think you need to read
it to appreciate the movie. I saw the film last night at it's World
Premiere at the Berlin International Film festival. Though it became a
little weighty in the middle (one part seemed to drag a little) other
than that it was a great experience. The story was so topical that I
got seriously emotional during a lot of parts. Weaving did an excellent
job with the mysterious title character "V", creating a poetic,
intelligent, and compassionate yet ruthless character. Portman always
seems to surprise me, except with her Star Wars character. She portrays
tremendous emotional range and transforms completely throughout the
movie. This is one of those movies that really sticks in your head long
after you watch it though... and it continues to stir and grow.
