Having lost my wife under similiar circumstances, I experienced exactly What Peter Gallagher's acting expressed in this Film. His moving potrail of deep grief was so much like what I was experiencing it was chilling. The film did make me realize, that its time to move on.

Here's the thing about this movie: He knows she's dead. A lot of the other reviewers here seem to forget that he acknowledges she's dead but that doesn't matter. She is dead but not gone. For some people, that statement sounds like some kind of sacchrine line to calm children. Sometimes it's the truth, though, and that's what this movie is about.

The movie does take itself seriously, but the subject IS serious. This is a solid movie, it's not a great film. Taking yourself seriously is not the same as claiming greatness. David Kelly is a capable director and the cast has chemistry and participate in the telling of a good story. That's it. It's a good story, and a fine film.

This is a fantastic film, from the writing to directing to the score to the acting. Peter Gallagher is superb in conveying the torment and guilt felt by a widowed husband. This is a situation that occurs all over the world all the time-losing a loved one is probably the most trying event that any person can ever go through. It's perfectly paced. David Kelley is such a great writer, it's just a joy to let him take you on this ride.

People compare this film to the play too much. They're completely different, theater is much more dialogue, film much more visual. I read the play after seeing the movie first, and although I'm always tainted by what I see first, I still feel the film is better. The characters aren't shallow in the film-they're just what's needed for how many of them there are.

I can't imagine what it's like to lose someone you love. I'm sure I will someday, but after watching this film you'll see how it can drive someone nearly mad trying to move on with their lives. A beautiful achievement.

I was widowed at 31. For whatever reason, I saw this movie shortly after that without knowing what it was about. I'm not sure if it's a great movie or hit me at the right time, but I really associated with it and it had a special place in my life. I'm not so sure that one ever really moves on completely from being widowed, but life definitely goes on and one has to learn a new balance for everyone's sake.

I've always like Michelle Pfeiffer.
The acting is excellent in this film.
Peter Gallagher does an excellent job of a man who is mourning the loss of is wife.
He talks with her on the beach at night.
But as his unwillingness to let go of her memory starts to effect the emotional stability of their daughter he realizes the inevitable.
Very well done.
But its not a film you will watch often, as it is so saddening.

I love Michelle Pfeiffer and Peter Gallagher in this movie. The only thing I did not like was the sister who comes in with her dose of 'reality.' I'm not sure I agree with her character's point of view and that somewhat spoiled it for me, but everything else was lovely.

Fanciful, imaginative and a beautiful tribute to how love lives on in the heart.

Order the movie on the recommendation of a friend. Since I've been carrying the torch for a love ones tragically lost. The story was good, the guy seems a bit wacko carrying on with a vision of the past. I wonder if I act the same at times. Still he had his rights to his feeling, just beginning to lose touch with life's realities. As for the seller good communications, fast ship, DVD advertised as used, I couldn't tell it worked great.
