One-line Reviews (20)

The story lines were riveting and unpredictable.

It's nice to see a movie with a complex plot and fascinating characters.

All in all, a very intriguing film with characters that could have been rounded out a little more.

It is the worst movie ever made, don't believe me?

I thought the unfaithful husband was just plain boring.

Well-acted, slow-moving story with big payoff.

I highly recommend it and can't wait to see it again.

I borrowed the DVD from the library, and could only watch it in ten to twenty minute blocks, it was so slow getting anywhere.

Oh, and the music is most awesome and entertaining as well.

It seemed odd, sluggish and pretentious in that 'Touched by an Angel' sort of way.

: --------------------------------------------- -------------------------------------------------------------------The movie actually becomes worth watching immediately after the scene where Malissa (sic) has received her gift from Doctor Albertson.

The five stories that are told are intriguing and the transitions between them are smooth.

Decent acting, intriguing stories...

A sparse, slow-moving film about a man deeply affected by an event we don't know until the last 15 minutes.

this movie was absolutely emotionally intense!!!

The film was both heartwarming and poignant and I really enjoyed it.

Pointless messages galore the genre should be horror because I was pretty scared watching this crap!

Jill Soublue is VERY entertaining, and very easy listening.

It was slow moving, the songs were dreadful and depressing, and the characters a collection of certifiable oddballs.

While the film is very long as it leisurely follows these characters' twisted trajectories, the mostly strong acting (particularly by Alan King in what I presume was his last film role) and the intriguing situations and lively conversations keep us curious, though the precocious kids interact with the adults like Gilmore Girls.
