It's bad, Joe. They're evacuating the villages. We're about to be washed out. We're hearing gunfire now.

Can you… can you get to Calamar? Can you get across the border to Columbia?

They're putting us on the bus. I don't know where they're taking us. Joe? Joe?

Emily!



User Review

Great

Rating: 9/10

Call me an soppy silly man, but I loved this movie. I loved every
sentimental sugar-coated silly second of it. I don't believe in life after
death and I think near death experiences are hallucinations, but this
movie
grabbed hold of me and didn't let go. I was genuinely surprised and
touched
by the ending. Great movie.
