20 December 2006 | by See all my reviews

This is another lousy God selling commercial movie, it 'sells' us "All life is sacred, and everything is the spirit of one." Apparently there are some natives, somewhere in the wild world, they have lived by these ideals since time immemorial, but now they face extinction. They want their voices heard and it's time for us to listen! Sadly we don't hear their voices; their voices are dubbed in English, and to give the native flavor, they have been dubbed in native-sounding 'bad' English! The movie speaks about how all life is one spirit, and how it is proper to see the earth as a mother, yet it presents these ideas so conceptually, with makeup but without feeling; we are almost forced to agree with it, because it sounds so logical and there are so many beautiful hypnotizing scenes. The movie has no philosophy. It doesn't touch the ground, it doesn't say anything. There's nothing that 'evolves' or 'developes' in it. Some people may find it relaxing to watch the beautiful landscapes, but after you relax, the constant commercial sounding assertion that all life is divine, sensing the hidden manipulation that we should all become new-agers and live like tribal men gets boring fast. Everything is covered in a wave of nostalgia. It makes you feel stupid. The spiritual depth of the concepts are taken very lightly. I would wish this God, whatever it is, would stay inside the movie and rule there whatever it wants. I want my movie to stay in the movie. Don't stretch out of your boundaries and teach me reality!
