Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah Jordan: I wonder, do we all know where we belong? And if we do, in our hearts, why do we so often do nothing about it? There must be more to this life, a purpose for us all, a place to belong. You were my home. I knew from the moment I met you, that night, so many years ago.

User Reviews

great movie, one complaint, personal effect
1 November 2004 | by LaLa218-1See all my reviews

I loved the movie because it opened my eyes to the world of relief work. It may not be accurate, but for some reason, it made me want to be a relief worker. I know that my work as one would not be a love a story, but what's important is that the movie showed me some characteristics about the line of work and its importance to third world countries. I also like the touch of Schumann music. He is my favorite composer. Jolie is a great actress, my favorite. I believe she held the film together. It is a delicate plot; I agree with others on that.

However, I did take note of the fact that the amount of money used to make the movie could have been more effective on third world countries if they were to buy food, medicine, and make better living environments. Yes that would have been more productive.

But I am still happy that they made the movie because it did touch a number of people. Even though I am 16 years old, I still do what I can by no longer spending money on superfulous items and saving what I have for the relief/aid program I am starting in my high school. So I must give credit to those involved in making the movie, because without it, I wouldn't be living the life I'm living. Not to make it sound like some sort of god, but I am proud of the effects that the movie brought into my life. I hope that it affected other people in the same way, both old and young.
