“To die, to sleep. To sleep, perchance to dream – aye, there’s the rub, for in that sleep of death, what dreams may come..” From “Hamlet”, act III scene I
We follow the river down into the stream
That’s where my dream began
I left my worries to the people who stare
And dreamed without a care
I know I’m not the only one who’s always had a special place in my heart for Robin Williams’ films. He brought a special, warm feeling to his movies with his kind face and seemingly good person, a feeling you can’t avoid noticing.
Watching this movie earlier this evening, I remember watching parts of it some time ago. What catched me now was the reference to Hamlet’s Soliloquy in the title, then I read the plot summary and thought it sounded like a movie worth watching.
It is a beautiful piece of art. An original story, unlike any other I’ve seen or heard about, with some amazing scenes and artwork. It is sad and full of emotions the whole way through. The choice of colours in some scenes are very interesting, and the music is beautiful.
It’s one of those movies that stays with you, that you’ll always remember. It does something to you..
“Soul mates Chris and Annie couldn’t be happier, having married each other and had two wonderful children. Unforutnately, tragedy strikes when they lose them both in a car accident, and then again for Annie many years later when Chris is killed in another accident. What Chris finds is a Paradise unlike anything he ever imagined, where he is guided by Albert, the first doctor he interned under and is helped to see his children once again. Unfortunately, when Annie takes her life in despair, she does not venture to the same plane of existence. Taking it upon himself to rescue her, Chris ventures into the pit of Hell with Albert and a Tracker to save his wife from the damnation she doesn’t even know she is forcing on herself.” Written by Curly Q.
