A strong picture that makes you think.

Many people wear "masks" to survive. And this film says it is about this.

People, about which this movie is about, live copies of celebrities.

The stars and just famous personalities from different eras and countries gathered together to just live and be happy in this difficult world.

They all single each one no one is there.

Struck by the parallel with this story, the story about the nuns, falling with the plane. These frames look with a small shock and admiration. Feelings and emotions are transferred for the characters and the skill of the people, but not machines and special effects.

And this fascinating.

A man appeared on light but haven't know how to live. The first time they directed by instinct, its direct parents. And a man is never know in with rare exceptions, their fate and death. Why? Maybe because he always has the choice to do so anyway... man does as his parents, close associates or the society in General. But when the result remains dissatisfied with his life, why do you think these behaviors imposed and forced, but not his choice. Copying someone else's, even outstanding, lives, you need to be ready for the powerlessness, the powerlessness to change anything in this life, because she be the end is known, if you make adjustments, it will have a different story of its own. I think very many people want to live interesting, but not just quietly. Only a source or a generator of the diversity of life needs to be himself persons and not someone else's script. Scared when alone with himself a man finds not that want, the void. Probably the fear of being alone, and hence — the desire to be accepted by society, because life is built on the rules of society.

Sometimes a person moves away from the typical forms of behavior and begins to think more broadly, unconventionally, dreams and creates his own destiny by himself. He gets what he really wants or at least approaching the desired, to dream. To live as want — worth it. Life under the blueprint does not require special mental costs and work on a and because it is easier than a life in the long road to dream, eternal quest, self-knowledge and improvement. Here without belief in yourself, program is to do (a true faith — this is a great sacrament, which does not tolerate publicity) without solid character, will power, hard to handle. Difficult, but possible. Even if all of the above the person is not has it can afford it to bring up, on it and people — the sentient being. Of course in this long and exciting journey going alone. He alone, because to understand himself the end can only he himself. And it takes courage to realize make — in fact you one. Need strength to overcome the fear of loneliness and emptiness.

Of course there are situations when the person is not can choose a different life — he is a hostage of daunting circumstances. And here we need a force to find in their lives something positive, pleasing and seek to change to the best. In compared these people, others who had a choice, but not taking advantage of them, look strange. In any case, the person always does, albeit unconsciously, but your own choice. He wants to know who is. Identity — proof of a private life, and not just physical existence.

Philosophical and heartfelt picture. Some revelation on the subject of self-knowledge and own choosing. She will be close to those who are even slightly thinking about this. The film pleases and surprises with easy metaphors and simultaneous literalness. He unobtrusive leads to thoughts on theme in parallel just tells the story. Very interesting, original and accurate sound design, especially the "Mister Lonely" in the beginning.

This is not entertaining a attractive movie.

Don't know where to start. I was expecting a totally different film. Not thought he so many will be deep.

The story of a guy who works with Michael Jackson. It is not just draws, it is trying to live its life. It is extremely lonely, only sneers and not understanding. And when he know about the commune of the same doubles, goes there in search of the same as he.

This strange commune similar to a different world. First, the impression is that it is a Museum of animated wax figures. These people are living someone else's life, they are constantly in invented images. They gathered together, to escape from past, even then it is not leaving a minute.

But a parallel story flying nuns left me understood. With one hand I know that she belief in miracle disappointment. Here don't know what is to the main plot of the film...

In the genres of film listed as a Comedy, but I personally nothing funny in the film, not saw. On the contrary, it was unbearably sad for the fate of the heroes
