I am not very busy listing Soulful Movies, but I am doing more work on my Soulful Books Blog
This is a great introduction to NDEs, and Mediums and a great story as well.
George (Matt Damon ) Was very sick as a child, and based on his description in the movie had a Near Death Experience (NDE) which resulted in him becoming a Medium, who no longer wants to use his gift (curse).
A French journalist Marie (Cécile de France ) is caught in a tsunami and drowns, has a NDE and is resuscitated. Upon returning to France and trying to continue in normal life she struggles to understand what she experienced.
A London schoolboy, Marcus, loses his twin brother and is on a search to communicate with his brother.
The movie documents these 3 characters experiences struggling with their knowledge of the afterlife and bringing them together to understand the truth about the hereafter.
This is a delightful movie about the loyalty of a dog to his owner. It is based on a true story about a Akita puppy who becomes a loyal companion. The Akita Inu breed is originally from Japan, and in the credits we find out that the original True story is Japanese based. So apart from Hollywood needing to westernize this story, I found it a delightful tale. Made my eyes leak, whilst I was traveling home on the Train, very embarrassing.
I found this movie on a list of 25 best movies on Samira’s notebook.
This is another Faith Based movie, and it features a Near Death Experience.
A young girl who has a very painful incurable disease, has an accident and falls down inside a hollow tree. It takes many hours to rescue her, during which time she has her NDE, in which she is told she will be cured. when she is rescued she is taken to the local hospital, and it is found she has hardly a scratch on her, and over the next few days her parents realise she is no longer suffering from her condition, and when they check with the specialist he stats she is no longer showing any signs of the disease.
When I watched this movie recently, I realised I had watched it as a child, as I remembered all the characters hiding in the house behind the steel shutters as the monster bashed it’s way in, but I guess I did not get the deeper message of the movie. I love Sci-Fi and enjoyed watching this movie as the rescuers struggle with a monster slowly realising where the monster comes from “a monster from the ID”. Another great movie from Stephen Simon’s recommend list.
