My first impulse was to think the movie sounded depressing, and who needs it? especially these days, Then I realized the story is compelling and might be interesting, Now I think I'd like to see it, When I was in college and shortly afterwards, I used to see over 150 movies a year, I learned that the desperately sad, melancholy movies like "Z". "5 Easy Pieces"."I Never Sang For My Father" and even "The Sorrow and the Pity" were often not only enjoyable but also uplifting, This was because they were well made and allowed the audience to share in the emotions of the movie cast, That had a profoundly positive effect, in being with other human beings in their most significant moments, and if only for a brief while, feeling at one with them,

So I would like to see "Pieces of A Woman". Ellen Burstyn is a masterful actress, I don't expect anyone to view the subject as I do, although you might,
