**** It says trauma doesn't make suicide right? Which is true. Also, if the afterlife is mental, would it make sense for someone who's punishing themselves like that in life to suddenly be happy when they died?

** This troper got the impression that committing suicide is kind of like accidentally inflicting intractable depression on one's soul. The action causes the soul to get stuck in a painful loop, and it's very hard to break out of it (I don't buy that hardly anyone breaks out of Hell).

** The entire movie works on the principle of ''reincarnation'' (typical Eastern mysticism) and then incorporates the more Western (Judeo-Christian) aspects of heaven and hell.

*** It says "Don't kill yourself any time you lose someone you care about because you think you can be with them again that way"? Which is... a good thing?

** What does this say that a person would inflict hell on themselves for having committed suicide in despair over the loss of their family, even if they can be reunited in heaven? Or that this was not made clear to them?

** In the movie it is established that nobody actually sends people to hell, that place is a self-inflicted penance.

* What kind of message does the film send by saying who becomes depressed after losing their family and kills themselves goes to hell? For one thing, since clinical depression is a medical disorder, I doubt that a notion of "free will" applies to it. The film also brings up the problem of reconciling hell with a just and loving god in general, of course.
