Mini Review: Nothing in this world will satisfy you. When we forget this and pursue things in the world, the result is always the same. There can seem to be temporary satisfaction, but the end result is always pain, guilt, and death. This world is not your home and so it can never give you what you want deep in your heart.
The movie uses the symbol of angels to show the presence of God’s Love. The deep metaphysical idea that the script is written is beautifully depicted. When we know that the script is written and everything is literally going to play out the way it will play out, then all our fighting and struggling is gone. We can relax and surrender to the One who knows.
