Beautiful film about mortality

It is essential to let go of needs and allow for something new, something more peaceful, to take its place. The main issue for people is not to advocate any specific worldview or philosophy, but rather to show that death is natural to life and something that everyone has to face. It is when people find some way of reconciling with mortality that they can fully be present and not be too worried about the world around them. Our lives are brief and are at the mercy of forces beyond our control, which can suffocate consciousness and delude people into falsehood.

A very good drama with a great idea

With his beloved wife suffering from terminal cancer, a scientist works hard to find a miraculous cure for her terrible disease, while having trouble with the terrible thought that they might get separated way too soon. At the same time, two more stories unfold, one in ancient Spain and the other in space, all somehow linked, presenting the idea of a man who seeks eternal life with his beloved.

It's an unique movie, one which presents three apparently different stories but which all have the same core concept. Each male character swears to do everything in his power for a chance to spend time with his lover, forever if possible. It's full of drama and emotion, presenting in detail the sufferings of the characters, their desperate attempts to fulfil their quests and what lies ahead for each of them. You simply have to be very though in order not to drop a tear, as this movie seems determined to make you cry with it's very well developed characters and its parallel stories.

Although it seems confusing from time to time, changing the story almost out of nowhere, it manages to keep the viewer interested and curious about what will happen next. It manages to link two of the stories pretty well, this being the main point of interest in my opinion, but the third one seems a bit off. It tries to present the spiritual part of the story, but it somehow left the feeling that it wasn't all that connected as it should have been.

All in all, I really liked this movie. It brought plenty of drama which makes you care for the characters and their fate, thus keeping you eager to find out how it ends. It's unique idea manages to be at the same time it's most important plus but also a bit of a let-down, in terms of connection. I had a very good time with it so I will definitely recommend it to anyone. It brings something new, a fresh idea, and this alone deserves recognition, not to mention the feelings involved throughout.

found the fear of loss

I was once a fan of mystery genre and I watched this due to the name of Hugh Jackman . This was fantastic . No wonder it was commercially unsuccessful . One of the best and one of a kind . Amazing story , great acting and direction . It is visually stunning and emotionally fulfilling . Just don't expect a mindless blockbuster and you will be rewarded .
