The film has an interesting chamber orchestra score by Philip Glass, and uses the Beethoven Moonlight Sonata (where it seems a little trite) and the Haydn C Major string quartet (very effective here). The style of this film anticipates Lars Van Trier, and makes me anticipate "Melancholia".
A leaflet called "The Other Side", "A Twelve Tribes Freepaper" writes that "When a person dies, the physical body, the material part of him, is buried in the ground and decays. But the immaterial part goes to death. That is the soul -- the unseen part of a person." When a person dies "he goes to a place of waiting. receiving either torment or comfort based on his life's deeds... Although death lasts long, it is not eternal." The paper calls Christ by the name "Yahshua." I recall, back in 1983, driving back home to Dallas on a Sunday night, passing through Commerce, TX and hearing a pastor say (and warn), "when you die, two angels escort you to judgment. At first, you don't realize what has just happened."
