very over-rated

If you are familiar with this disaster and watched many of the excellent videos on Youtube, you'll be surprised by the narrow focus of this movie. Too much time is spent with triviality. BY the way: I find the "I'm in" selection totally useless.

Love and Hope Triumph

Beautiful movie....hard to watch at times, but a film full of love and hope in spite of overwhelming tragedy all around. It was inspiring to watch the Thai people tenderly help those in need.

Not bad... But I wouldn't reccomend it.

I think the movie was a little to drawn out. Although I thought there were some scenes that were very good and emotional there were some scenes that were very boring. Overall the thing I didn't like about the movie was it was too graphic in the medical scenes for me. I had to shield my eyes a few times.

The Movie Lives Up to the Title

I've seen all the big movies this season, and this by far is one of the most exceptional films of them all. The fact that it is a TRUE story and the family was very involved in the making of it makes it all the more powerful. It is the only film I've cried during this year, the only one worthy of tears honestly. The 2004 Tsunami ripped apart the islands of Indonesia, but this movie is about the love the wave couldn't ripe apart. It is magical and moving and makes you very aware of the power of love and hope and really makes you question the materialist world we live in and what really matters. Excellent! Powerful! Impossible to forget!
