Awesome Music: The entire soundtrack for the film is beautiful. From the original violin pieces in it to the numbers from Golden State and Lisa Gerrard, the music makes the scene in this movie.
Critical Dissonance: Most reviewers panned the movie for what they felt were excessive religious themes. Roger Ebert, on the other hand, said it "achieves something that is uncommonly difficult. It is a spiritual movie with the power to emotionally touch believers, agnostics and atheists - in that descending order, I suspect. It doesn't say that religious beliefs are real. It simply says that belief is real. And it's a warm-hearted love story . . . I fell for it."
