My favorite part of this movie is when Amy Acker's character stays alive and don't die suddenly for shock value before the ending like it usually happens on tv shows with her.

Felt very awkward and staged. I understand how they wanted a literal translation of the work, but it didn't really work in this case. Couldn't watch it through and turned it off after 1/3 of it.

Whedon's MAAN is probably one of the few films I'm actually enjoying re-watching time after time. The actors and the fact that it was filmed in black and white are the main reason why this movie works so well. And it made me fall in love with Acker's talent all over again so I can't be more grateful.

Amy Acker may not be the best Beatrice ever but her acting is nearly close to perfection and, what's more important, her delivery of famous "if I were a man" monologue is breathtaking. Just as it should be.
