Astral City: A Spiritual Journey (Nosso Lar) | Review

5 December 2011 2:07 PM, PST | SmellsLikeScreenSpirit | See recent SmellsLikeScreenSpirit news »

Director: Wagner de Assis Writer: Wagner de Assis Starring: Renato Prieto, Fernando Alves Pinto, Rosane Mulholland, Inez Viana, Rodrigo dos Santos, Werner Schünemann, Clemente Viscaíno, Helena Varvaki, Aracy Cardoso, Selma Egrei Based on the best selling book by the infamous Brazilian medium Chico Xavier, Astral City: A Spiritual Journey tells the story of André Luiz (Renato Prieto), a doctor who experiences a spiritual awakening after he dies. Xavier purportedly wrote Astral City with the guidance of André Luiz's spirit -- who communicated the story to Xavier from the afterlife -- and considering the minute and thorough details revealed in the film, that actually seems as if it could be believable. I will refrain from commenting on that, though... André first wakes up in purgatory, a nightmarish dimension of pain and suffering. In this realm, André is referred to as "a suicide," therefore his purgatorial peers do not believe that he deserves to be saved. »
