    The drama & romance film potrays Gabrielle who is not in the best stable condition. I wish that the end was different but it is what it is. As always i admired Marion Cotillard's acting.

    This film is a brilliant exploration of the fragility of the human mind and the redemptive power of patient love. Based on the negative reviews here, it appears that many have experienced it on a very superficial level (i.e., the sex is not the focus despite its explicit portrayal). Those who take issue with the plot twist at the end must believe that intense self-delusion is not possible. This will come as quite a shock to those who have spent their lives studying multiple personality disorder.

    I actually love this film very much, the ending is quite shocking, but also make it real and great. The power of imagination and conflict to reality, I think only women can really understanding it.... Great performance by Marion and Beautiful music "June"

    When I saw the critics gave the movie a 32, I thought, typical critics, looking at their watches and not willing to use their brains to put the whole story together. I would recommend this to anyone looking for a unique romance.

    Marion Cotillard is great, but the story is terrible for the clichéd mental struggle.

    If you can hang in for the character development (and the vesting is what makes the movie pay), then you are in for great film experience.

    Sadly what can you do when an Oscar winning, deservedly, actress works with a screenplay, actors, a director and even a music score that works against her? "From the Land of the Moon" as a title makes even less sense than the movie, which took 2 screenwriters to adapt from a novel. Marion Cotillard can either be crazy or a nymphomaniac or a crazy nymphomaniac or neither but it really doesn't make a difference. She marries a man she tells she won't have sex with and either has an affair with a gravely ill or doesn't with the bottom line meaning nothing when the 'great' reveal comes at the end. Marion Cotillard is always a joy to watch and if the 2-hour film had just eliminated everything, every character and just showed her it would have been worth seeing but no way can I recommend this film!
