A Fantastic Movie

Catharine Austin Fitts is one of my favorite people.  I've never met her or even seen her in person but the things I've heard her say in interviews resonate with my spirit.  I love her common sense-matter-of-fact way of speaking/thinking.                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                  

Her lots of diverse resources, one of which is movie reviews.  When reading one of the articles I came across the fact that Catharine's all-time favorite movie is "As It Is In Heaven," a Swedish film starring Michael Nyquist.  As you can see from the Amazon link it is pretty expensive to buy new but I searched for it used and found it for about $10.  The DVD arrived yesterday so we watched it last night.  It is an amazing movie--possibly our all time favorite--because of the message and the emotions evoked, the exceptional acting, and the beautiful music.  Now that I've seen it, I wouldn't hesitate to pay the $30 for a DVD if it was the only way I could see it.  I plan to watch it again and again--possibly starting tonight.  It was THAT good!

From a review on Amazon: "Seeing this movie is like hearing a symphony that leaves you both empty and full. Empty of misery and full of what is beyond words and thoughts."   I totally agree!
