A must see movie
25 October 2001 | by (Philadelphia PA.) – See all my reviews

This is a movie that touches your heart as well as your mind. As I was watching this movie I couldn't help but think how much time we waste looking at the world through our own personal tunnel. That the things that truly matter, which are there all around us, seem to get lost. From things as simple as the smile on the faces of the people we love, to seeing the sadness in their eyes, to being able to really listen. Because in the end what really matters most, is the life and love we share, and the love we leave behind. I highly recommend this film.
