Daniel Pearl stating his identity in the video...Image via Wikipedia Watch a movie of Angelina Jolie,and a late review on "A Mighty Heart".
"A Mighty Heart," the story of Wall Street Journal reporter Daniel Pearl's kidnapping and murder six years ago, a story that everyone knows and most people ( not all ) would like to pack away if not forget? but i adding this late post and movie for a thing to whom love Angelina and her works.At last , i love the song of the film and you could be watched "A Mighty Heart" movie from link at the bottom of this post.

Reading the book ,full story of Daniel Pearl ( The Brave Life and Death of My Husband  Danny Pearl, ) it constitutes a much richer experience.
Pearl is idealized as an honest reporter, a perfect husband and an abstraction — he never comes to life as a three-dimensional hero. In the end, the producer fails to address what about Pearl made him worthy of the film's title.
"Mon amour," Mariane tells her newborn son, "It is fine by me if you want to change the world."

The story was already told with beatific, haunting resonance over six years ago, but on an adaptive level, the movie's creators appear to have missed half of the equation by only absorbing the surface of the text and missing the heart (a fact that makes the movie's title that much more ironic) the central problem of A Mighty Heart: "They left out the laughter and the love".

I quote this post below on All Movie Guide to knowing more...(AMG Review-Nathan Southern )
The film offers virtually no insight into the inner dynamic of the Pearls' relationship, and here it misses the very spirit -- the inner vitality -- of the book. Winterbottom attempts to compensate for this with a handful of flashbacks to Daniel (Dan Futterman) and Mariane (Angelina Jolie) experiencing moments of intimacy (enhanced to some degree by Harry Escott and Molly Nyman's piano score), but the film could benefit immensely from a longer, deeper, and more resonant exploration of Daniel and Mariane's relationship -- either prior to the coverage of his abduction, or via more extensive flashbacks. 
The picture suffers, as well, from Jolie's lackluster performance. She is, simply put, miscast -- she's much too polished for the multiethnic, expectant Mariane Pearl, and she reflects glamour and gloss in every shot -- as if she's ready to walk right off the set and pose for the cover of Vogue or In Style. (In the book, Mariane indicated a significant loss of sleep and physical suffering that almost drove her into early contractions -- shouldn't we glimpse this via a dramatic shift in Jolie's appearance?) But more problematically, Jolie utterly and completely fails to display necessary emotional nuances and inner evolution of her character. 
She plays Mariane Pearl as a sort of tabula rasa -- an ice-water-veined woman, so emotionally guarded as to render herself virtually impenetrable to outsiders. Projecting a vague aura of cockiness and indignity, she acts like a bitchy, spoiled-rotten princess and does virtually nothing to involve us in her plight; it is an interesting conceit, but does little to engage the audience. Consequently, Jolie's histrionic breakdown at the end of the film when she learns of Daniel's murder (screaming maniacally -- not just once, as indicated in the book, but multiple times; pounding her fists on the walls violently) seems that much more misaligned with everything that has come before it -- and suggests that Jolie perhaps read Mariane as a woman unable to even explore or project the contours of her feelings until tragedy drove her to the point of emotional breakdown -- an idea not underscored by Mariane Pearl's self-insights in the book. When Jolie does give us emotional transitions upon receiving a devastating or discouraging piece of news...
