  • The melancholy attached to the impermanence of life and love suffuses this film, making it memorably haunting and hypnotic. show more

  • For its delicate tone, provocative themes, impeccable craftsmanship and superb performances-by Carey Mulligan, Andrew Garfield and Keira Knightley-Never Let Me Go earned my great admiration. I wish I'd been affected in equal measure, but I wasn't, and it's not the sort of film you can will yourself to enjoy. show more

  • A beautifully mopey adaptation of Kazuo Ishiguro's much-praised novel. show more

    The first time I watched it, it was very late at night, yet I could not stop. I was drawn into the characters. As the film proceeded, it was so emotionally compelling and I pondered as to the premise of the film. I felt sad that their purpose on this earth was to donate their vital organs and complete, I wondered why they Cathy and Tommy didn\'t just run away from this torment and begin their own lives, once they realized their life was a lie. The acting was superb, and music very sad as it intertwined with the story. I think this film is worth watching.Just to experience a really unusual film.

    I felt the movie was very moving, a little slow for people who like alot of action though. Carey Mulligan was excellent, rent it, you won\'t regret it...

    I had to watch it twice - to fully realize the stunning meaning of this film. The characters are compelling and they etched themselve into my heart. Never Le Me Go is a haunting and memorable film that I will never forget.
