Magical movie !
on 25 May 2015
A heavenly romance with its feet firmly on the ground. This movie is seriously under-rated by the worldly-wise "critics", probably because while it starts on Earth during the time of the Depression , it also goes on to show how life in the Spirit World is radically different to the version offered by orthodox religions, based on information deeply researched by the author ; and to the cynics, will be too lacking in the usual "darker" side of human emotions which they seem to prefer in romantic films these days.
There is no violence, physical or otherwise, just nice, ordinary folk, on both sides of life, dealing with normal day-to-day problems , and thereby gaining mental and spiritual maturity, depicted by two principal young characters who meet, part, and then meet again. How, when, and where this all happens is the basis of the movie, and is depicted via an unusual story-line. A film for all generations. The music is excellent too !
Why this never gets shown on TV while lesser productions such as "Ghost" are endlessly repeated is a mystery, except that as said before, there is no blood and gore, and perhaps those who control what we are offered on TV probably cannot accept that some of us actually do like movies that have a great story, and yet without the doom and gloom most current movies have ?
Excellent value for money - but ensure that the DVD you buy will be suitable for Region 2. The one shown has a cover only used in the USA, the Region 2 version has a different label.
