I remember the first time I saw this movie I could barely breathe from all the intense sobbing I was going through. This movie is beautiful in every way, I can't even describe how intensely beautiful it is and how much I can relate to the whole alienated/ freak thing going on. It breaks my heart everytime I see this movie but above it all, it gives me hope that in the end something good will come my way. Loved it 10/10

To me ...this story is a depiction of human hatred, prejudice, hypocracy, and ignorance as well as a look at a remnant few who dare to love, to give,to stand, and to "love there neighbor".... if only more would dare, and hatred "be cast into the sea". Unfounded hatred is unacceptable, never the less, to forgive and to be forgiven is always a righteous "antidote".

Methinks the Doc had a bit of a "thing" for Amy. But being a Doc, she was "beneath" him. Though he certainly seemed a good-hearted man. I also feel she reminded him in some way of his lost wife. Sad there are so few movies such as this nowadays, with subtleties deep as the Sea.

Based on Joseph Conrad’s short story ”Amy Foster”, this film is about a Russian man, Yanko, who survives a shipwreck. He stays in Britain to start a new life, only to face maltreatment and discrimination, and finally falls in love against all odds, for an outcast just like himself. The passionate love affair leaves you absolutely breathless. As Dr. Kennedy says in the end, ”he came across the world to love and be loved by Amy Foster”. The enigma around Amy Foster exists only because people don't grasp the subtleties of her personality . Her silence was not out of inaction or stupidity; rather it was a way of communicating either disdain, disinterest, or disapproval for how others were treating her. Amy's main way of communicating, aside from her silence, was through her eyes. Even though Yanko learned to speak English, he also appreciated and learned to communicate in Amy's own language. Rachel Weisz is brilliant, her line about her dearest belongings being ”the gifts of the sea” is heart wrenching. Vincent Perez has the most kind eyes, he makes you feel his anguish against the harsh and cruel opposition of the people in his new home. Ian McKellen shines. Kathy Bates and Joss Ackland are top-notch. The landscape (the Cornwall coastline) is strikingly beautiful. Those who seek emotional experience will love this movie.

Watch and weep all you cynics and misanthropes!! lol Great story, beautiful couple...physically and how they were depicted spiritually...Vincent Perez was hot with his wild long hair and his way with words... thanks to the novelist who put them in his mouth. If anyone knows why the doc was so down on Amy...please PM me because I missed it.

I usually don't watch romance movies, but after reading all the reviews, I am a little curious about this one. I think I will give it a try to see what everyone is talking about.

Oh My Goodness this movie no words can explain how awesome it is! An as for Amy I clearly don't understand why they felt she was "a little off or slow" she was to me smarter and more than they ever were! Awesome Awesome Movie!!! Must see!
