I really enjoyed the story and the film.
17 April 2008 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I really enjoyed the story and the film. It was very rich, complex and filled with layers (much like a painting). I really felt like I was part of the journey, and it just reminded me about how real life can be sometimes. The film captured so many of life's subtleties. The cinematography was also very engaging. I was touched by so many different emotions. I saw the film with my mom, and she thought that at one point there was sound during the rain storm. I can't remember if there was sound or if the image of rain and all of the connections actually allowed her to "hear" it even if it was silent. What happened to Andrew could happen to anyone. We all go through life for the first time and things happen that we can't ever explain. How do we go on? How do we have the courage to open our hearts again and again when opening our hearts to others can be so scary? The film really made me think and ask myself a lot of questions. It really opened my mind in so many ways. I was so happy to share that with my mom.
