This movie is not only visually impressive but it is also the most beautiful story about the real meaning of life.
I recommend it! You have to watch it to have your own opinion since there are many moral values involved in this story making it hard to trust the reviews.
The movie tells us a story about "Andre Luis" who was a successful doctor living a rich life (rich material life) and just like many of us he did not care to enrich his spiritual life (moral values) letting the selfishness, pride and self-centeredness take over his personality. Only after death he finds out that knowledge, status and money without moral values doesn't help him to be happy in the eternal life.
