4.0 out of 5 stars a good companion for the book, 24 Nov 2009
This review is from: The Celestine Prophecy [DVD] (DVD)
For those who say this is new age twaddle, they clearly have no idea and can provide no substance to their argument to say why new age or spiritual ideas are somehow wrong... tell me what's wrong with recognising our faults, or control dramas, or loving others? Not sure why one reviewer thinks this film is made in soft focus... it isn't, perhaps there was something wrong with their TV.

As a standalone film, it certainly isn't something that's going to compete with hollywood blockbuster special effects or high impact action movies, and if you've no interest in spiritual matters or the philosophy of happy living then it's not going to be for you. However, if you've read the book(s) and like what you read, then this film acts as a good reminder of the concepts provided.

In the 1 and a half hours of the film, there's clearly not enough time to go into the details of the insights that are presented in the book, and you'll recognise that certain details from the book have been left out. It may have been more complete if done as a 6 hour total, 4 part serial set, but I guess budgets and timescales didn't allow for that.

The exras are just the trailer (as you can see on the Amazon website anyway) and a 25 minute "making of", which has some interesting discussion with the actors, but doesn't offer any further insight into to the film or book.

If you liked the book, it's worth seeing the film.
