A very ambitious movie with many different facets (just look at the cast to see the different characters). This movie covers a vast amount of time and follows many different characters. The characters and stories are interwoven from beginning to end. We are watching characters develop over the course of many different lives and how every event prior to the new life effects their decisions. The actors give top notch performances throughout and this is one epic movie that deserves several viewings.
