    How can a film look so radiant and be so hollow? show more

    Bob Graham San Francisco Chronicle

    Astonishing visualizations of the afterlife are coupled with a drawn-out allegory about communication between the living and the dead that becomes something of a trial to sit through. show more

    So breathtaking, so beautiful, so bold in its imagination, that it's a surprise at the end to find it doesn't finally deliver. show more

    I was completely surprised by this surreal, unusual and beautiful love story. Cannot believe that I haven\'t heard anything about ********** a \"must-see\" for any movie fan. Not only was it a touching story, but the portrayal (directing????--from me, a novice) was fantastic!!

    TODAY IS SEPTEMBER 24 2011, I ************ THIS MOVIE AGAIN. IT IS AN ABSOLUTE \"MUST SEE\" FOR EVERYONE ON THIS EARTH. THE STORY AND THE BEAUTY OF ALL THE VISUAL EFFECTS IS \"A WORK OF ART\" IN ITSELF. ROBIN WILLIAMS AND THE REST OF THE \"STARS\" WERE ABSOLUTELY INCREDIBLE AND SURELY HAVE A SPECIAL PLACE IN HEAVEN FOR BRINGING THIS STORY TO LIFE FOR THE REST OF THE WORLD. THANK YOU SO MUCH
