"Muted cries and echoed laughter, banished dreams that never sank in sleep/Every ghost that calls upon us brings another measure in the mystery..." -Dan Fogelberg
Can the spirits long past, ghosts of who we once were, haunt us so impressively that our future is irrevocably transformed? The past selves are never disappeared ages ago, for our former selves has made us who we are. Without them there is no us. And our feet are forever trapped in the clay of our former actions, beliefs and experiences.
My real question about the film is that an event in the far past, overwhelmed by a lifetime of memories, settled arguments and decisions to remain... would the memories, no matter how potent, really cause such an earthquake?
Almost perfect acting by the two leads.
