What would happen if the dead did come back
8 January 2008 | by (Glen Cove, New York) – See all my reviews

This is NOT a horror film. When a decades long missing boy returns to his mother a ministry official is sent to investigate. Soon more dead people begin to return to their loved ones.

What is the nature of longing, of human needs and of mourning. What would you do if that person you've missed finally came back? These are some of the questions that this intriguing movie raises.

Sentimental.touching. heartwarming, harrowing, contrived and yet completely and almost compulsively watchable. Think of it as something similar to Field of Dreams but not just for guys, or going into that purely sentimental direction.

This is a one of a kind film that really should be seen
