The Invention of Lying

Finished this movie a couple of minutes ago, and I really liked it. It's about a man who lives in a world where nobody is able to lie, nobody even know what it is, everybody just speaks the truth basically, and Mark (main character) tells the first lie ever and it changes his entire life.

So Mark first uses his ability for personal gain, but then he helps other, he basically invents religion by telling his mother on her deathbed that she will go to a better place, and later he tells the public, which at first makes them happy but it doesn't work out the way Mark intended.

His love interest doesn't work out the way he wants to, 'Anna' likes him but doesn't want to be together with him, because he is chubby and has a snub nose, and with everyone being brutally honest, she tells him this, several times.

I don't want to spoil more then I've already done, but I advice everyone to watch this move, it made me happy and gave me a couple of laughs, and somewhere there is a lesson learned.

+Great acting
+Brilliant concept and very well executed
+Funny

-Not a huge fan of the whole religious theme

  3. Hrm, the religious theme aspect seems really interesting to me though. Did they just do it poorly, or is it offensive to religious people?
