  • 5 stars "Beautiful movie!!! One of the very few movies that I already want to watch again the next day. Such a touching story that you keep thinking about it later."
  • 5 stars "I fell in love with this movie. The power and love and the idea of reincarnation. Was beautifully filmed. Both Astrid and Matthew were flawless. This will really tug on your heart strings. Appreciate what you have"
  • 1 star ""As their relationship develops, so do questions about the morality of science and the validity of religion" Interesting premise. Unfortunately the movie is a pretentious juvenile story preoccupied with lots of sex and little meaningful dialogue."
