When Tala beckons Eddie to come to her in the river, she calls him with her palm facing up. In Asian cultures, including Filipino culture, it is incorrect to call someone over with the palm facing up. A Filipino girl would only call another person over with the palm facing down, reserving the 'palm up' gesture for animals. See more »

Heartwarming and tear-jerking all at the same time!
I watched this movie and thought it was such a wonderful story. It really goes through all the parts of his life and who he touched (whether he knew it or not). I would love to think that we will all have that kind of resolution when our time on Earth is done. This movie will definitely make you cry! I lost my mother when I was younger and this movie made me understand what my father went through at this time. It also gave me an idea of what it was like to fight in a war and have to live with what happened there for the rest of your life. I would absolutely recommend this movie to everyone. For all of us that think death is such an awful thing and are sad to think of those we would leave behind, it was a great way to look at what could happen after our life is over. It also gives hope that those we have lost are still watching over us.
