| Re-edit?
This movie could be a hit if they'd edit out the kids and the crow...

I watched it on TIVO sped through it the first time (gave it one thumbs down). For some odd reason (guess the description caught my attention) I TIVOd it again.

This time I let it run on a Sunday afternoon whist cooking an early dinner...sorta like company. When the scene where Joanna describes the human body as a vehicle (I like container) caught my eye/ear I began to pay attention.

From that point forward, I found that Helen (Going) and Dave (SPF) interactions to be quite engaging.

I finally sat down to eat when Helen asked the boys if they'd ever seen their bodies from above. I relaxed, ate my steak and watched the rest of the movie.

I loved the ending line so much I played it a couple of times and decided to "watch" Eden a third time.

I found that I was speeding through the painful and superfluous family footage stopping only for the interactions of Helen and Dave.

As a video editor, it was clear to me that a really great, interesting spiritual movie could be cobbled together using the existing cut. Simply by editing out the kids and the crow a terrific movie would emerge..try it yourself.

There are so many great monologues and dream sequences in this movie it'd be worth the effort just to get the message out.
