makes you think
10 June 2001 | by (Bloomington Illinois USA) – See all my reviews

this movie changed my life and makes you question what life is about. I cannot say much more than that w/o ruining the plot. I would recommend this movie to any "coming of age" person who feels unsure or confused about what life means. It is not an answer to the question, but rather an introspective of what life means to the individual. Or, it could be that I just read to much into it. Either way, it is very well done.
