A must see movie for the soul
7 June 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this documentary. I saw it at a film festival last year and am so excited to get all my friends and family to attend.

The documentary is a humorous but not mocking, earnest attempt to answer unanswerable questions.The questions are simple, but have profound implications on both ancient and modern belief systems, morality, laws, politics and religion. There are as many answers to these questions as there are respondents. Some are quite interesting or sincere while others are just nuts!!

Overall, its a must see movie to start our own discussions about what IS the Nature of Existence! What is our purpose and all those other intriguing questions that sometimes get lost in the everyday motions of life.
