I'm writing this mostly to address some comments by other viewers that, when I read them before deciding to watch the film, almost caused me to not watch. However, I'm extremely glad I went ahead and invested the time; this film is extraordinary from start to finish and the wisdom it conveys had me in tears every few minutes.
In any event, at least a few reviews that I read took issue with the idea that eating too much in life could justify the experience Andre Luiz had in the dark world (Umbral, I believe they called it?). The thing is, that's not really what the film portrays at all.
The experience he had in Umbral was the after-life corollary to the dark night of the soul that many experience while still living. It was an experience that passed when he reached the point of being "helpless and hopeless," and surrendered personal will, just as the dark night passes when we are brought to that point. He was scorned even amongst the...
Whether the reality after life depicted is "accurate" or not, I think this is a good movie, and inspiring. I don't know whether there's much point in saying ***SPOILER ALERT*** because ALL the reviews are spilling the beans, but what I appreciated so much was the subtlety. Whatever spiritual persuasion you may be, the lessons the Doctor learned were subtle in the extreme. Petty irritations, ego and pride, concern about status and outward appearances were shown in small, seemingly insignificant yet profound ways. For example, in one scene in life the Doctor is annoyed, sigh, but reluctantly sees a woman and her husband at the end of the day without an appointment, SUCH an imposition. In the afterlife, he avoids the woman again. Later he learns this woman was so grateful to him for helping her husband that she prayed for him (with utter selflessness), and thanks to that single prayer he was plucked from hellish oblivion and given the chance to repent, be rehabilitated...
This is a foreign movie with English subtitles. I have never seen such a movie. It is inspirational as well as interesting. It leads one to a more open mind about the afterlife. A place where everyone is valued and loved. I have watched it several times. This movie is one of a kind. I highly recommend watching it. It does not have a regular "Heaven" afterlife, so if you strictly believe in that, you probably won't like this movie. If you have an open mind as to what the afterlife might or could be, I think you will find this movie refreshing.
