This is a superb movie, for those who have the aptitude and endurance to sit through 2 hrs of discourse, personality driven story lines of 3 people who have life changing experiences. It is also a striking movie visually from the very first scenes of the tsunami to the mountains of Switzerland and the street scenes, housing etc.
In my opinion I am an agnostic with no faith at all in an eternal life or life after death sort of things, but that does not change the amusement value of this film which I qualified as an investigation of human love, patience, and mercy.
For me the most painful story line was that of the twin brothers Jason and Marcus. These roles were commendably overflowing. Born into what at the most excellent were very complicated state of affairs, one twin must tolerate a loss of almost untold proportions. Each character suffers immense failure, of elected work, of trust in those close to them and a hesitation of their own capability to go on. Within the configuration of the story all these worries are resolved and gladly so. It doesn't make an affair whether an entity of a moviegoer accepts the idea of the film, or not. To me this is a greet breath of fresh air, a film where the characters have a superior will, politeness, where there are no conscious acts of meanness and where people are in actuality trying to do the greatest they can with the situations dealt them.
It’s a must watch experience!
