  1. A love story that veers uneasily between mysticism and melodrama.
  2. Reviewed by: Angel Cohn
    Combining an interracial friendship with an age-old love story is certainly a worthy idea, but this poorly executed film is riddled with every cliché in the book and then some.
  3. Theresa Russell is terrific as Angela's slatternly but loving mother, but her character disappears abruptly midway through the movie.
  4. Reviewed by: Eddie Cockrell
    A preposterously convoluted and exasperatingly sappy saga.
  5. 25
    A schmaltz-laden soap opera from Saskatchewan.
  6. Reviewed by: Matt Singer
    At least the title's accurate: This is a viewing experience that feels like it will never end.

    It is a rare movie that has grit and passion. It is heartwarming. It teaches patience as a backdrop to a much to real love story. It has "Sixth Sense" elements and was very touching. If I could change anything, it would be that I felt sorry for Mia and her fellow actors for performing some scenes. The performances were realsitic all the way around. You are left with the knowledge that you have just watched one of the unforgettable movies of your lifetime. Full Review »

    This movie is full of so much beauty and compassion... I was left overwhelmed with an undescribible feeling of truth and beauty. The best movie I have ever seen... and I don't say that lightly. Full Review »
