    Le meilleur film de toute ma vie

    I wrote my headline in french meaning - the best movie of all my life. It's just a masterpiece or ''chef-d'oeuvre'' in french. I saw the movie the first in 1996 and I just couldn't forget it. So I ordered it online in DVD version some monthes ago from France 'cause I wanted to see and hear Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman in french - french is my mother tongue. I almost know now some of the dialogs by heart. Freeman and Robbins are just sublime. There is no better expressive word to tell about them in this movie. It's just the best of them two ever. May I say a few words in french for some of the french speaking people who aren't necessary good at english? I guess I may: Ce film est et restera l'un des plus grands chef-d'oeuvres dans l'histoire du cinéma mondial. Il vous donnera des frissons, beaucup de tristesse et vers la fin, il vous laissera heureux car la justice, la vraie, triomphe de l'injustice et des faiblesses du systeme judiciaire americain. Andy vaincra la combine incarnee par Sam Norton and le tres violent garde Hadley. On vit ce film, on le respire, on le sent dans la peau et on l'integre totalement tant il est bon. Il faut le voir pour mieux comprendre mon etat d'ame. L'auteur de ce manuscrit - Stephen King - prouve encore avec ce roman qu'il demeure le maitre inconsteste dans le genre et c'est a juste titre que Frank Darabont a choisi Morgan Freeman et Tim Robbins pour lui donner vie. Je suis a court d'inspiration pour traduire le degre de perfection de Shawshank Redemption ou ''Les evades de Shawshank'' en francais. C'est tout simplement un chef-d'oeuvre inoubliable que tout homme doue de raison devra avoir dans sa videotheque - ou DVDtheque.

    This movie deserves 10 stars!

    I have watched this movie an untold number of times. Tim Robbins and Morgan Freeman stir the very existance of life in this movie. I get emotional every time I think about this movie. Few actors have achieved such magnitude in their careers. There is sooo much more I could say but will limit it to this......don't cheat yourself ANY longer, watch this movie. Buy this movie. Tell your friends. In my opinion, owning it on DVD is an honor. Real acting without all the special effects.

    A MUST BUY movie

    I saw this movie already more than 35 times... and I already order it on DVD. For everybody who did not see this masterpiece, you are missing a masterpiece directing by Darabont. All the way Zillion Stars.

    Best Movie Ever Made .......EASILY!

    Before this movie, I didn't like dramas much. There are so many things about this movie I enjoy I can't fully explain. It is such a simple movie with a simple story but it hits you in an amazing way. I believe every person should see it before they die!

    One of Freeman's Best

    Morgan Freeman was excellent. You can't get any better than this. Tim Robbins - what can I say. The lead role was played to perfection. 5 stars all the way. A must see movie!

    the Most Terrific Movie I have seen

    Last Saturday I saw this movie, it inspires me ''Never To Give Up Hope''. And I think ''Andy'' is more charming than ''Jack'' in ''Titanic''.
