Trivia

Thomas Harriman (John Heard) recited almost the entire poem "Los Enigmas" by Pablo Neruda. The last part of it says: "I want to tell you the ocean knows this, that life in its jewel boxes is endless as the sand, impossible to count, pure, and among the blood-colored grapes time has made the petal hard and shiny, made the jellyfish full of light and untied its knot, letting its musical threads fall from a horn of plenty made of infinite mother-of-pearl. I am nothing but the empty net which has gone on ahead of human eyes, dead in those darknesses, of fingers accustomed to the triangle, longitudes on the timid globe of an orange. I walked around as you do, investigating the endless star, and in my net, during the night, I woke up naked, the only thing caught, a fish trapped inside the wind." See more »

Utterly fascinating
3 February 1999 | by jmooshaSee all my reviews

I was certain I'd be bored out of my skull when I sat down to watch this film, upon the recommendation of a former girlfriend.

Who would've thought a metaphysical conversation captured on film could be so spellbinding.The subject deals with our place in the universe, and it is explored from several angles, all of which will send your mind swirling to higher and higher realms. No small part of the film's success is the chemistry between Liv Ullman, Sam Waterston and John Heard, one of our most underrated actors.

Add to this the stunning backdrop of Mont St. Michel, which in startling counterpoint, complements the wide-ranging subject matter, and you have one hell of an entertaining movie on your hands.
