Our impressions and movie review:
The great film “Still Alice” is based on the novel with the same title by Lisa Genova, which was published in USA in 2007. Even though the screen writers – I can’t tell you about the book – have rounded the world of Alzheimer, still alice 2014the film still is like a punch in the stomach. The excellent performance of Julianne Moore make the scenes very realistic and very shocking. This dramatic film is not suitable for a movie night to relax with pizza or snacks. But this is one of the films the whole family can watch and discuss. Alzheimer disease does not ask you before it enters your house, and when it does it turns your life upside down. Therefore it is a good idea to learn about Alzheimer and see how can we stand against this and stand by our people who are affected.
