Default The movie Bliss.

There's an Australina movie called Bliss--one of my favorites--I've been rewatching it for years. It's about an average, succesful family guy who has a heart attack and dies; but while he's dead he thinks he goes to hell and comes back to life. After that he's changed; he sees things he never saw b4, like his wife is cheating with his business partner, his daughter is trading sex with her brother, his son, for cocaine, the companies he does advertising for are evil and produce cancer causing materials and cover it up. He believes he is still in hell and the only way out is to "be good." He gets involved with a lovely, spiritual call girl from the outback, moves into his garage with her and quits his job--his wife takes over the firm. Anyway he starts to fall back into his evil ways and the girl leaves him, goes back to the outback; he realizes he made a horrible mistake and follows her; when he finds her, she wont have anything to do with him b/c she thinks he's a phoney. He knows she loves honey so he plants trees that take 7 years to bloom flowers for the bees to make honey for her. After seven years of planting trees and waiting, one spring she tastes her honey and realizes it's different--the best honey she ever tasted, and she realizes it's b/c of him. She goes to him and admits that she still loves him; they get back together and have kids and live out the rest of their days in the outback.

If only things could work out this way. I think this is hell. I'd plant trees for seven years if I knew for sure I could be happy for the rest of my life. This story gives me hope b/c I think it's what life should be about. There should be forgiveness, redemption and the possibility of a peaceful, happy future.

It's hard to find in a video store, but you can always order it online. That's what I did b/c it's out of print. It's not the one with nicole kidman; it's got barry otto in it.

No, I haven't seen that one. It's not an indie and I would know--I'm the indie film king---I see almost all of them--it's just Australian and from the mid 80's so it's hard to find, but not that hard.
