This movie is one of my favorites. I’ve seen it several times and it impresses me every time. First of all, it makes me ask myself “what does it mean to be alive?”. The subject of the film is quite difficult. However, it also has a positive accent, showing that there is always a small spark of hope. In addition, Dr. Sayer’s determination is admirable.
Apart from that I really like Leonardo’s character. Robert de Niro most often plays tough guys, this role is completely different, but he did it well.
I guess there’s nothing more to add, because everything had been said in previous replies.
