A must see (if you get the chance)
2 September 2004 | by gusdltSee all my reviews

How many times have you wondered about healing powers? Well, this movie will clear some of your questions in a fascinating way. Learning that not everything weird is a bad thing, this movie will touch your soul (especially if you believe in healing, you are a healer or you have experienced healing). Emotional though not corny, this is a complete must see. The actors are completely bright, nothing is exaggerated at all, everything is so much as you would experience in real life. This movie being so simple in the way it was filmed made it even better, a true masterpiece of reflecting reality (at least in the everyday situations, because healing is not that usual in our world). Watch the movie, you won't be disappointed or at least you will learn something new.
