The Celestine Prophecy
- 1 hr 39 min
The Celestine Prophesy was originally a book written by James Redfield, then produced as a movie in 2006. It is based on New Age writing, but/and holds a lot of truth. If you have no interest in this spiritual truth, read no further. However, if you do, this movie might be very interesting to you. It may be especially interesting as many of the supposed fictions in this story have become well known lately. The music, by Nunu Malo is lovely throughout, and the photography, by R.Robin Givens is quite spectacular, theoretically showing beautiful Peru, with a lot of Florida credits at the end. It is widely known that Florida is not full of mountains, however. There are 9 prophecies, which are all based on common sense, reiterated in script at the end of the film, basically telling humanity how to get along better. The Catholic church and the government are the bad guys with the closed minds, naturally, and the truth seeking common people are the good guys, which will probably sound familiar. Now television’s Matthew Settles plays the teacher who is laid off, which gives him the opportunity to chase these supposed prophesies in Peru. After a series of enlightening adventures, he is able to stop his controlling attitude and have a fairly intelligent time, including a potential love interest. One of the fictional prophesies is telling us that everything is not a coincidence. For example, it is not a coincidence that you are reading this movie explanation right now. There is probably something that this movie can teach you.. Indeed, the philosophies of the writer are put forth here, but it is not unusual for a writer to weave his own philosophies into his writing. The film also brings up the fact that you might want to follow your intuition, which is probably not a bad idea.
