The Christmas Candle torrent reviews
(it) wrote: The surreal moment following the conclusion; one of those that makes you contemplate your entire being.
(ca) wrote: Beautiful documentary for classical music lovers.
(us) wrote: I'm a dumb monkey and I didn't understand this movie since it lacks basic exposition and explaining. It still has awesome ideas though
(br) wrote: A sweet and tender love story. A young woman who has had a string of disasterous relationships decides to take stock of her life. Taking a 90-day vow of celibacy allows her to step back and determine what is truly important. There are plenty of bumps along the road, but Laura (Moreau) finds the inner strength to survive and in the end finds that the happiness she had been seeking was there in front of her. Maybe a little sappy at the end, but I don't mind. Ms. Moreau lights up the screen and one only hopes that we will get to see her again.

(mx) wrote: Dumb 1980's film that'll entertain the family. Not really a good movie and really dumb, but I got some laughs out of it.
(mx) wrote: Great movie. Intriguing, interesting, very engaging with great performances by some great actors. Some dry humor thrown in to add some levity to the somewhat macabre story. Really enjoyed watching this.

(au) wrote: This one was a joy to watch. DeNiro and Duvall are at the top of their games in this one and have an amazing script and very well written characters to sink their acting chops into. They do not disappoint and provide us with a wonderful show of tour de force acting. The movie itself is a real film noir throwback kind of film and for fans of the genre it is not to be missed.
