The movie "What Dreams May Come" has provoked astonishment and repulsion, admiration and aversion. Some love it and some hate it, but no one seems to be able to be indifferent about it. From our perspective, we appreciate the fact that a movie about the after-life dared not to be shallow and make religious brainwashing. Quite on the contrary, Vincent Ward’s film instigates the audience to think about death, and to rethink their values regarding after-life. Maybe that is why so many were shocked by its contents and scenes.
