The last scene in which Annie is seen alive, sitting on a bed writing in her journal, there is a triptych by Early Netherlandish painter Hieronymus Bosch on the wall behind her. The painting, called "The Garden of Earthly Delights", features three panels. The first being Bosch's interpretation of Heaven, the second Earth, and the last Hell. See more »

It's been a while since I last saw this one, but I will always remember this as one of the saddest movies I ever saw, in a good way of course!
There are hardly any cheerful tones throughout the movie, so it is not for people who like soppy stories. But the effects are amazing and the vision of heaven is very original. Robin Williams is, as always, very good at performing. This was the first serious movie I saw featuring Williams, and I was amazed. I had thought Williams would be the type who could only act decently in comedies, but this one proved me wrong. He can put down a serious character with all ease not only that, he can truly touch you with his oh so tear-jerking lines.
My conclusion: if you are planning on watching this movie, keep your tissues at hand, and some food and drinks as well since the movie isn't exactly what you call short.
