The reoccurring clip of the man at the side of the road using crystal glasses as musical instruments is actually going back to the music video for one of the featured songs in the film's background score. "Humans Like You" by Chop Suey had an official music video which featured the same figure playing with crystal glasses in it. This confused a lot of viewers when My Life Without Me was first released, because it wasn't ever explained to the audience. See more »

If you are in the mood to cry and be moved and touched then this is the movie for you. Even though it has a very sad story line...it doesn't leave you extremely depressed like most sad movies do. The movie is very well done both artistically and acting wise. The main character is so beautiful but in a very real way. I think that's one reason why it is so easy to relate to this women and her life. She is a very strong women through her last few months before she knows she's going to die, which I find to be very refreshing, compared to just watching a sad, depressed, angry women dying. When I tell people what this movie is about they usually don't seem very enthusiastic about seeing a movie about a women who knows she's going to die, but let me just say it is so much more than just that! I would definitely recommend this movie to anyone that is sensitive and deep and compassionate. I loved it. It also makes you really look at your life and makes you want to live life to the fullest. Give it a try!
