F. Murray Abraham,
Adapted from a stage play by Anne Nelson, a drama centering on a slice of the aftermath of the 9/11 tragedy. Nick, a fire captain, who lost eight men in the collapse of the World Trade Center, enlists help from an editor, Joan, to prepare their eulogies. Nick builds a relationship with Joan, who helps him put together the difficult, heartfelt speeches that he must deliver with honor, humor and poise--all the while, navigating his way through his own emotional response.

I knew then that every time I saw a person on the street, I saw only his public shadow. The rest, the important part, lived in layer after layer beyond my view. We have no idea what wonders are hidden in the people around us.

When it happened, here in Belgium, we were shocked. When we saw the documentary's afterwords, we were shocked again. Watching this movie for the first time, i was shocked for the (i lost count) time. What a movie. Hat of for LaPlagia, who play's the broken worn out commander perfectly. You can see the man's pain through his eyes. Sigourny Weaver begins to feel the man's pain and guild and play's excellent the reporter who begin's to know Lapaglia's friends and share his grief. A real tearjerker from the beginning till the end !! It's like you get to meet some of "The Guy's", and understand the way they worked together.
Respect from Belgium for the fire department (anywhere in the world)
