An effects vehicle disguised as a metaphysical meditation (or a metaphysical meditation disguised as an effects vehicle?), this strikingly unimaginative 1998 movie contains visuals that can barely assert their niftiness amid the vacuous themes. A neuropsychologist (Robin Williams) and a painter-restorer (Annabella Sciorra) are so in love that one of them has to die to introduce some drama into their relationship, and most of their story takes place in an effusively art-history-inspired heaven and hell, where they encounter friends and relatives and try to undo some bad karma. Vincent Ward directed a screenplay by Ron Bass, based on the novel by Richard Matheson; production design by Eugenio Zanetti (Restoration). With Cuba Gooding Jr. and Max von Sydow.
