I watched Breaking the Waves with a pleasure. It's hard to find a movie done this well. I know it gets a lot of stick for being the mainstream popular movie, but honestly I can not think of anything wrong with this movie online. Breaking the Waves also looks nice from the soundtrack side. Varied dialogues are the quintessence of this image, they inspire the viewer. The whole movie is still very relaxing and motivating. I bought this movie in blu-ray quality last time, so I decided to upload full movie here.
