I don't have a lot to say about Awakenings except from that it is an amazing masterpiece and one of the most touching films I have ever watched. The performances by Robert De Niro and Robin Williams are fantastic and this is one of the best movies of 1990. There are moments in this movie which made my cry and weep and others which made me laugh because a thought of how beautiful and valuable life really is. I recommend this movie to anybody who loves cinema, art and life. And I also recommend the book from which the movie was adapted because it is also brilliant and extremely touching and gives more details about the lives of the people involved (doctors and patients).
