A movie big on themes yet crafted with brevity. One can argue as to what on screen is meant to be taken literally, but at its heart this is a meditation on the need for an acceptance of death.

Hugh Jackman is very touching in a solid performance in three different haircuts. (When he’s bald, he looks like Peter Gabriel, by the way.) Oddly enough, this tale of a man so completely in love with his wife led me to inadvertently insult mine. It’s a long story.
