| The future of spiritual entertainment
This movie will not appeal to those who are spiritually asleep, and who are numbed and insensitive to feelings and require bombastic pain and negativity to feel anything. They will call this film boring. But those who are more highly evolved in the capacity of the heart and of consciousness will recognize a magnificent masterpiece of high-frequency subtlety in this work.

I was amazed at the superior maturity of emotional frequency of the movie. The beautiful music, the magnificent northern Italian Alpine scenery, the slow and quiet pace, the intermittent scenes of India (because one of the characters is from India), and most of all, the complete absence of any conflict or harsh words between the actors, all combine to create a magical experience that transports sensitive and spiritual viewers into a heavenly world.

It qualifies for at least the low end of what we call Third Phase of World History entertainment . . . that level which has transcended duality and negativity, and is now exploring the infinite wonders of beauty, knowledge, and creation. The drama of the script involves lost relatives searching and finding each other . . . which creates just enough intrigue to hold the attention and create anticipation . . . but like the lotus, it consistently remains completely above the mud of negative words, actions, feelings, or events that usually characterize most stories. The worst emotion in the movie is a kind of prevailing sadness in the early part of the movie, but even that is done beautifully, and it gradually gives way to miracles and greater and greater brightness towards the end.

This is the future of entertainment because mankind is destined to wake up and mature out of the morass of thousands of years of destructive feelings, and rise into the beauty of exalted feelings . . . and this movie displays this masterfully. Very well done.
