This is my all-time favorite movie. As a kid who has Asperger's, the plot of this film meant a great deal to me. I mean, I certainly am not as, well, "different" as Oskar is, but I am still different, and this movie has had an impact on my life in more ways than I am able to describe. Honestly, this film is so good, so perfect, so spellbindingly and achingly beautiful, I genuinely find it hard to describe. It is sweet and genuine, heartbreaking and crushing, funny and lighthearted, and sad and frustrating all at the same time. Normally, with a movie that has that many tones and moods, the end result would be uneven and jarring, but they all fit together perfectly. Thomas Horn's performance as Oskar Schell is the single greatest performance ever put on film in my opinion. They way he captures the mood and character of Oskar is so spellbinding and powerful that I honestly wouldn't be surprised if he himself had Asperger's. Tom Hanks is just the right kind of fluffy and whimsical father that an Autistic child deserves, and Sandra Bullock captures the nervous and soft-spoken mother that a real 9/11 widow would be. Max von Sydow, while not given all that much to act with considering his character is a mute, is also supportive and gentle as the old man who wants to help Oskar. The plot goes into a significant amount of depth and intrigue, giving a constant and heavy helping of twists and turns that made it so that you never want it to end. The twist at the end, in particular, was relieving, satisfying, and unexpected, making you want to rewind the film and look more deeply at the plot elements. The emotional moments were so unbelievably well handled and gripping, never letting go and nearly pushing me to the brink of tears (the only film I ever really cried during was The Land Before Time, which I still get teary eyed at). The philosophy and psychology that the movie takes the audience through is so well done and interesting, really allowing you to breathe in the film's atmosphere and explore Oskar's mind. I can seriously and honestly say that this is the only film I have ever seen that literally has zero flaws. Simply put, there is absolutely nothing wrong with it. It's just a perfect movie. Nothing less. It is a must-see movie that truly deserves the honor of, in my opinion, the single greatest movie ever made.
