Gentle supernatural romance with sad end.
Director: Brad Silberling
Stars: Nicolas Cage, Meg Ryan
In a few words, I would describe this movie as “human world vs angels city.” An excellent implementation of the story, with intangible matters and thin entities in the movie.Great play of the main actors – Nicolas Cage, Meg Ryan.
The plot is based on the concept of Free Will, which allows any spiritual entity to make its own choice. Such a choice is done by Seth. Originally, angel, he started to desire to become a human due to his love for a woman. Seth got what he wanted, but his happiness wasn’t long-lasting. The love story ends tragically, revealing the non-perfect humans’ world for what it is and pointing out the big risks of having a human’ existence.
PS My dying husband was staring at something behind my left shoulder in the same manner as dying Meggie was watching behind Seth’ś shoulder. I was talking to him and he always looked at my face, but not that day. It was several hours before he was gone. I was curious what the entity was looking like, but I didn’t ask. My intention was to encourage him for the transition to another world, but I was afraid that the entity had an awful appearance and I would spoil the last moments of his life by emphasizing on the matter. However, if “it” was looking like Seth- its not terrible at all and this gives me a release :).
Thank you for the wonderful movie helping us to clarify a reality beyond the border!
