Director Gabriele Muccino was attracted to the story because it tells of a mysterious personal journey that is, in fact, a true declaration of love. He feels it tells the story of a man consumed by remorse and the pain of having lost a loved one, who finds himself face-to-face with the one thing he expected the least, the opportunity to start again, to live a new life, and that the story is thought-provoking, bold, touching and full of emotion. As such he believes only Will Smith could have been capable of giving the film so much strength. See more »
Ben says "The first time I ever saw a box jellyfish, I was twelve. Our father took us to the Monterey Bay Aquarium." If we assume Ben is the same age as Will Smith he would have been twelve in 1980. Monterey Bay Aquarium didn't open until 1984. See more »
If this movie doesn't touch every sentimental nerve in your body and
reach to the core of your soul, you are not human.
This movie will touch your heart in places you never knew existed. Each
of us has seen those movies that reach deep within and cause the light
tear to seep out of corner of our eyes and we quickly wipe it away and
hope no one sees us. You will indeed be seen crying on this one. You
will need a box of tissues.
I do not know how or what the so called self critics are seeing, but I
don't think it's the same movie I just finished watching. Yes it's a
little slow, but its real . This is a human in tune with what he wants
and doesn't let ANYTHING stop him from completing what he started.
It's a Shakespeare tragedy in today's society. A movie you should
9 out of 10.
