Intéressant...ce film a été tourné en français. Il ne faut pas être pressé ou s'attendre à de l'action mais se laisser imprégner par les personnages qui se révèlent en douceur. J'ai été très touchée de la façon que la directrice a choisi de développer son film en passant par le don d'organe. Le + est d'écouter les commentaires de la directrice à la fin. C'est suave et elle rend compte de son cheminement à partir du moment où elle a décidé de faire ce film. C'est tout un art.

Very slow movie. The most interesting part is the transplant operation. Great surfing shots. With a stronger, less melodramatic storyline it would have been an even better promotion for organ donation.

A single devastating event intertwines inextricably the lives of an unfortunate teenager, a weary woman with a critical degenerative heart condition and a team of compassionate doctors; all perfect strangers, perfectly interconnected.

A fresh look in an original organ transplant story told with compassion, sadness and joy by weaving the lives of the past, present and presumably future of a vibrant young man and those he touched, and ultimately life goes on. Excellent subplots on the intersecting characters that included those medical professionals in the transplant process.

This a great ensemble film with the theme of doctors healing the living. This is one of those films where it is best to know as little as possible about it before viewing. Let the director tell you the story and you will be rewarded.
