Profound movie. Really at a loss for words about this one.
I had seen the occasional trailer here and there for it when it was at the theater and when it was released on DVD. On a whim I got the soundtrack and started listening to it before watching the movie. What a great soundtrack. Some people have voices that you can just listen to all day long. Two people that I enjoy their voices a lot are Eddie Vedder and Tom Waits (very extreme differences, I know). Something about their voices is soothing to me. A couple of days later I got around to watching the movie. Wow. Just wow. Started looking things up on the internet the next day to find out more information. I really enjoy movies that get you to think about things and can prompt one to look for more answers and form more questions.
I wouldn't call it a touching movie as it is more hard hitting, at least for me.
