Extremely Loud and Incredibly Close

Although we love romantic comedies and other chick flicks, we also can appreciate movies with a serious message. One of those rare movies is Extremely Loud and Incredibly close, which tells the story of the autistic Oskar who loses his father on, as he calls it, 'the worst day': 9/11.

''“Extremely Loud & Incredibly Close” is a story that unfolds from inside the young mind of Oskar Schell, an inventive eleven year-old New Yorker whose discovery of a key in his deceased father’s belongings sets him off on an urgent search across the city for the lock it will open. A year after his father died in the World Trade Center on what Oskar calls “The Worst Day,” he is determined to keep his vital connection to the man who playfully cajoled him into confronting his wildest fears. Now, as Oskar crosses the five New York boroughs in quest of the missing lock – encountering an eclectic assortment of people who are each survivors in their own way – he begins to uncover unseen links to the father he misses, to the mother who seems so far away from him and to the whole noisy, dangerous, discombobulating world around him.''

What we like about this movie is that you not only see the expedition of Oskar, but you also experience this movie as an expedition itself. Piece by piece you get more information about what happened to Oskar's dad at 9/11 and you will come closer and closer to the lock that fits the key. The movie lets you experience one of the thousand stories after that horrible day and it is really touching. We absolutely recommend this movie, 'cause there is so much more to the story than you would think...
