What is the movie Winter's Tale about?
Winter's Tale is a romantic fantasy drama set in New York City which is subsumed in arctic winds, white lights and dark nights. During one long winter night an orphan and a master mechanic named Peter Lake, played by Colin Farrell, attempts to rob a well protected mansion on the Upper West Side. He thinks that the house is empty, but the daughter of the house is home. This is where Peter, a middle aged Irish burglar, meets with Beverly Penn, a young girl, who is dying, and this is how begins their love. Winter's Tale is a breath of fresh air based on a book written by Mark Helprin. The book is long and very complex, difficult to comprehend at times and can be a bit confusing. Some of the aspects had to be left out in order to not make the movie very long. The adaptation is well done and all of the important parts of the book are in the movie as well. The music in Winter's Tale is wonderful, it brings the whole world to life and it is actually awe inspiring. Cinematography is excellent and it can be said without a doubt that many people will enjoy this flick. If you're looking for something different, something romantic and fun to watch, definitely give Winter's Tale a go.

This movie is about a real and sincere, breathtaking love, that some people are looking for many years, about wonders that this feeling is able to revoke. He is Peter Lake- the intelligent, sincere and a bit tangled in his life. And also he is a great thief, who has made angry the local mob. She is Beverly Penn a wonderful young lady from a very rich family, who is innocent. She is great at playing piano and is great about discussing people’s fate, and also she is very sick with a incurable disease.
No one could ever think that those two have something in common, but there really is something wonderful and sincere in their mutual feeling, that makes this world much better. And of course they meet a lot of obstacles on their way. I will not say the whole story, as it is better going through all those moments yourself, i can only say that it is a great one, and a bit sad one!

I got a bit desperate about the fact that people have stopped filming something good, beautiful and touching, as movie with essence, but this film has made me changed my mind! I didn’t regretted for even a moment the fact that i went to see this movie, and i am pretty sure that i will want to see “Winter’s tale” one more time. The actors were splendid while performing their roles, and i did not thought even for a second that i was sitting in the cinema. The pretty Colin Farell, and the gorgeous Jessica Brown -Findlay- what can be better than their tandem? I can hardly imagine something like this exists. After watching the movie i was thinking about it many times, which is a sign of a great movie. The sense of the movie is simple, each life matters, and each person is aimed for something, while time is just number. I recommend this romantic story to happy couples, there is nothing more pleasant than laying in the arms of your beloved person while watching a great movie!

Actually i am not a fan of love stories or horror movies, as after both of those i am usually quite upset, which is not a very thrilling thing. But in general i can say that this movie, during only two hours has managed to save my life completely! It changed my thoughts and imagination about the world itself. The beginning of the movie is quite foggy, and not clear at all, and i really regretted the fact that i didn't read the book before watching it. Little by little the plot becomes clearer. I can say that it is not a soap kimd of movie, but a movie about life! I was desperate about the fact that i haven't seen some good and beautiful and touching movie for quite a long period of time, but this film has made me change my mind! I didn't regret even a minute of the time spent on it, and i am sure that i will watch it again and again many times in my life! The actors did just great! I can hardly imagine now someone else performing in it! So i can say that this movie deserves your attention and highest possible marks!

I have never thought this film was supposed to be funny, but I found it funny. I do not recommend watching it with your partner, unless you're thinking about ending the relationship. If you didn’t read the book, you will find this film confusing, still you shouldn’t read the book to enjoy the movie. Still, I am afraid to fid a book and read it to get frustrated it is as bad as the movie itself. The film is awful, but funny. Maybe this is due to the fact as it was written, directed and produced by the same person, I do not really know. This is what I really mean when I say I consider this movie funny.
