Storyline

In 1952 while driving to California to start his life anew, twenty-something Mike Shea accidentally dies while doing a heroic act. Despite floundering in his life - he was having troubles holding a steady job and his supposed girlfriend was about to marry someone else - he was not ready to leave the living. In heaven, he learns that despite it being a fantastical other world existence, he still has human emotions, such as romantic love, which he feels for a "new" soul he meets named Annie Packert (i.e. she has never been among the living on Earth), who in turn loves him. He also learns that one's next life is somewhat predetermined by their stay in heaven. So when Annie is sent to Earth for her first go around as a human, Mike pleads with the man in charge at heaven, Emmett Humbird, to locate him in his next human life at least in the same country so that he can find Annie. Emmett reluctantly agrees, but only gives Mike thirty years in his next life to find her. Those next lives of ... Written by Huggo

For those who believe it or not
5 January 2004 | by See all my reviews

I absolutly LOVE this movie. The charm and magic of the movie inspire me since I was 9 years old. Thimothy is fabulous and drives the movie to the paces of the character smoothly. For those who doesn't have a bitter heart and wants more than a Meg Ryan movie.

I'm the fan number one of the movie that must be seen by the ones searching for the twin soul.

The songs are also brilliant !!
