a film about reincarnation, past lives confusion and self discovery
A daring and ballsy move by SHIRLEY MCLAINE to explain her discovery on her personal truth on reincarnation. The topic of reincarnation and past lives is subjective to each person as religion and ideology should be. yet, the book and movie that spawned from it as well as tv appearances were daring. There have been a few times myself Ihave met people inlife who resemble people who died in a past life of one of my ancestors. The concept of reincarnation is open to debate but interesting at best. The woman in this film was open to attack several times by far right religous groups who view all reincarnation buffs or explorers as a nazi grade generational lines cult..this is not the case. Not by a long shot. Reincarnation, suppose you meet a person you met during a past life this doesn't mean you are inclined to date etc. This film and her tv experiences relayed on shows like DONAHUE etc. were ballsy and daring in a era when people didn't want to talk about this stuff and her story a catalyst for change. I have my own opinion on this topic yet, well don't all of us? Interesting topic. I saw at least a hour of this film. I liked the live apppearances better.
