Most is the story of a single father who takes his eight year-old son to work with him at the railroad drawbridge where he is the bridge tender. A day before, the boy meets a woman boarding a train, a drug abuser. At the bridge, the father goes into the engine room, and tells his son to stay at the edge of the nearby lake. A ship comes, and the bridge is lifted. Though it is supposed to arrive an hour later, the train happens to arrive. The son sees this, and tries to warn his father, who is not able to see this. Just as the oncoming train approaches, his son falls into the drawbridge gear works while attempting to lower the bridge, leaving the father with a horrific choice. The father then lowers the bridge, the gears crushing the boy. The people in the train are completely oblivious to the fact a boy died trying to save them, other than the drug addict woman, who happened to look out her train window. The movie ends, with the man wandering a new city, and meets the woman, no longer ... Written by Wikipedia

20 August 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

My church showed this film this past Sunday in place of a sermon. Our minister is a fantastic speaker but nothing that he could have said could have delivered the message of the sacrifice that God made for us as powerfully as this film did. Several people had to get up and leave the church and everyone else was left in awe. Everyone should see this film...and hopefully then would understand and remember how much our God loves us. After viewing this story, I have decided to buy a copy for all of the people in my life that I love. What better message can I possibly give to my family than this. In a world where the focus is on "me", "mine", "more", I could only wish that MTV would broadcast this instead of the sad and vulgar videos that our children are exposed to...
