This movie takes place during the mid 20th century, where gay sexuality is not accepted. Colin Firth's character is not allowed to be part of his lovers family at the time of his death and funeral. Colin Firth in this movie was so brilliant and so believable in his character that you felt the pain and hard work that he was going throw in this movie. The only problem that I had in this movie is that the film slowed down at times and other characters in the film that are forgettable.

Amazing actors performance, half of the dialogue is with corporal language; about how a life could change after lost someone loved, and how it could return a sense of refresh. Is not a "nice" movie, although, like Carlos says: "Sometimes awful things have their own kind of beauty."

This is a movie about visual cues and nuances. First-time director Tom Ford's attention to detail in crafting this slow-building story about appreciating relationships is magnificent, especially for a debut film. Colin Firth proves that he is one of the great actors of this generation yet again.

Gorgeous movie with great performances from Firth and Moore, but that ending....you may end up feeling as though you wasted your time.

A moving film about a man who is living, he believes, to be his last day on Earth. George is grief stricken due to the loss of his lover and decides to end his life. He spends his final day getting his affairs in order so he can leave peacefully, but every encounter slowly makes him realize the value of his life. Colin Firth gives a very good performance and has you from his opening scene. While a key element of his character is his sexual orientation, at its heart this film is about love, loss, grief, and acceptance.

Unfortunately this film revels in sadness. I'm not sure if it's brave for a straight man to play a gay man anymore. A boring film is a boring film. After seeing this film, I saw its trailer while seeing another film. I can't imagine all the acclaim around Colin Firth and Julianne Moore. I actually cracked up when they called this "a role of a lifetime" for Firth. I think that was Mr. Darcy in the Pride & Prejudice mini-series. Sorry!
