Movie Reviews

Look for the forest beyond the trees.
Gary R. Kilburn | Chicagoland | 02/28/2000
(4 out of 5 stars)

"I found this movie to be very uplifting. It isn't just about a girl learning to fly or about her romance on ship board, although those things are elements of the film. It is a message to everyone that in order to live and move forward in life one must let go of the past. One needs to let go of one's fears, and one needs to love regardless of social convention, race, orientation, etc. While the plot did have a lot of angles, it was tied up nicely by the end, and I felt overall it was a film worth watching."
Wow What a Bad Movie

"The only good thing I can say about this movie is that it was colorful. The island scenes, the flamboyant shipboard sets...etc. However, the story is too stupid to be believed. I believe there is supposed to be some kind of mystery tucked in and amongst all the vapid and shallow subplots but you will find your mind wandering so often you will not be able to figure out what the mystery is.

Then there is some kind of philosophizing which goes on when the main character Gabriel Angel (I guess that name is supposed to have some kind of significance too but who knows what?) makes her speeches about what life is about but, again, it's almost impossible to figure out what the point of these speeches is either.

Don't waste your time."

"Truly disappointing film. A good starting linestory, wasting good actors; I saw it on TV and the DVD has a different ending missing scenes while adding others that are irrelevant. A waste of time and money."
