    I initially watched this film at a theater and over the course of a blind date. Unbeknownst to me, and while I'm not particularly religious myself, my date just happened to be a fairly devout member of Church of Christ, and naturally, I had chosen an arthouse flick centering on the theme of reincarnation.

Perhaps in a way this film was simply too fantastical for me. Whatever the ultimate reason is, I just couldn't get into…
