Critic Reviews for 39 Pounds of Love
It's not quite on the level of Enron, or even other disability-themed nominees such as Murderball. But with a subject like Ami Ankilewitz, nitpicking seems out of the question.
So inherently poignant, a conservative approach would have been wise.
Stirring, sobering, and manipulative enough to be slightly suspect.
39 Pounds of Love is a heavyweight emotional champion. Although deserving such adjectives as lovely, loving and inspiring, the documentary steers clear of cloying excess.
Audience Reviews for 39 Pounds of Love
Love it or hate it, you'll never forget it. It is a decision that you really need to make for yourself... See it prepared to laugh and don't forget the kleenex... :fresh:
This film made me glad to be alive. Watching Ami overcome his life circumstance made me feel like I could overcome anything. No whimpering allowed!
A great uplifting movie. Ami inspires us all to remember our purpose and find gratitude in life and our natural will to life. I encourage all to view the film and be uplifted.
