I would rather have seen a film that dealt with survivor’s guilt in a serious way. The ending is like a trick at the ending of a non-serious film. I decided to watch to see what Uma Thurman was doing nowadays, but her presence was not enough to make up for this malarkey.

I thought this movie was excellent. Deep and penetrating, I found myself thinking about the premise and the characters after the movie was over. I watched it over a year ago and I still remember it as a very good movie and recommend it. It also has an unexpected ending that may make you want to watch it again.

I found the movie disappointing and messy. It's slow moving and disjointed. The ending made little sense to me.

Good - The Life Before Her Eyes (2007) 90 min. starring Uma Thurman and Rachel Evan Wood. I watched this film cold in the sense of not knowing the premise of the picture and I'm glad I did - I got to experience the events (in mind only) as the characters did in this picture - surprised and in horror. Very good acting, good messages throughout make this a winner. The only reservaton I had was the conclusion of the film (it just wasn't necessary, in my opinion, because it created holes in the story that it didn't have to).
