The Alchemist is a simple, enjoyable, elemental morality tale, easily understandable for those (few, I guess) people who understand humanity and what we do to ourselves and our own souls in the name of "justice." I'm surprised and saddened that so many people seem to have missed the point of the film. It's worth seeing.
