I expected a lot from Clint Eastwood and Matt Damon. That's why I tried this. What a slow, tedious, sappy movie. I even watched the whole movie! Expecting some redeeming value to giving my time. Matt, I forgive you, you must have just wanted to work with Eastwood.
Clint, shame on you for thinking your great music could salvage this disaster.

Not a Matt Damon fan: he is basically a stupid overpaid actor with an IQ about the level of the average cop--maybe 90. But Clint Eastwood directed this so it is interesting; Clint is a true genius.

There was a part of this movie where I was wondering if it was worth the time. Once all the stories came together it became a wonderful story. Be sure to watch the extras, they are worth the time. Good movie!

of Clint Eastwood's movies this is probably his most tender amd thoughtful, the subject, still controversial, though utterly irrevocable, is respectful and accurate, coming from someone who's been there, performances are splendid, often heartbreaking

Very confusing and disapointing. A real waste of time

I didn't expect much from this film, but I got a lot. Unexpectedly moving.

I really enjoyed this movie. I was surprised it didn't get more favourable reviews when it first came out. Thought provoking subject, well acted, directed and sticks with you.

Did not expect much from this film but was surprised at how good it was. Matt Damon does a fine acting job. The story is compelling and believable. Would see it again.

Guy is lonely since he has special powers.
Girl is lonely since she has special experience.

The last twenty minutes of the movie is them making each other not so lonely.

Dr. Rousseau: You know, as a scientist and atheist my mind was closed to such things. Oh, absolutely. Afterlife, near-death experiences Like everyone else, I thought people saw bright lights, Eden-like gardens and so forth because they were culturally conditioned to do so. But after 25 years in a hospice working with people, many of whom were pronounced dead but then miraculously survived. the account of what they actually experienced were so strikingly similar it couldn't just be coincidence. And add to that the fact that when they had these experiences they were almost all unconscious, a state in which my enemies agree the brain cannot create fresh images.

Marie Lelay: So you think I really did experience something?

Dr. Rousseau: Oh, yes.I think you experienced death.
