She retraces his path, meets all the people he touched before he vanished, and makes a startling discovery. The answer to what happened to Daniel is resolved in a remarkable life affirming ending.

A burnt out lawyer disappears in order to put the puzzle of his life together.
30 January 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

The spiritual journey of Daniel Coplan unfolds much like the spiritual journey that many of us find ourselves on: Confusing, painful, humorous and inspirational, anything but boring. Echos of Enlightenment is stylistically similar to books like Robert Persig's Zen and the Art of Motorcycle Maintenance and movies like Memento, with the philosophical weight of What Dreams May Come. If you are in the mood for a 'brainstem' evening of movie watching, Echos of Enlightenment is not the movie to see. It requires the full attention of the viewer, prompting each to reflect on the state of their current existence.

One especially 'enlightening' aspect of the film is the look at the life of a lawyer. Mr. Coplan (Director) does a particularly good job of illustrating the tedium and minutia that can (and does) drive individuals to brink of implosion. I for one will never become an attorney after seeing this movie.

Echos of Enlightenment, while not technically perfect, is a film told in a unique and interesting fashion. Its subject matter is worthy of the art of cinema and should be explored more often. Thank you Mr. Coplan. Please make more movies.
