Overview

The prophecy of a worldwide spiritual awakening gradually begins to come into focus in director Armand Mastroianni and screenwriters James Redfield, Barnet Bain, and Dan Gordon's sweeping adaptation of James Redfield's best-selling novel. John Woodson (Matthew Settle) was a high-school history teacher before the loss of his job left him disillusioned and facing an uncertain future. When John is contacted by ex-girlfriend and journalist Charlene (Robyn Cohen), who is currently in town on a brief layover after covering a story in Peru, the pair arrange to meet for dinner and Charlene explains that she has just returned from a remote Eden known as Viciente, where scholars are currently studying a mysterious set of eight ancient scrolls. It was there, continues Charlene, that she came into contact with a priest named Father Jose, who explained to her that the scrolls contain a prophesy written before the birth of Christ and foretell a coming time of enlightenment that will redefine life in the 21st century. Though at first skeptical, John is compelled to book a flight to Peru when Charlene states that she appears to have been drawn to him by a higher power, and a travel brochure on Peru appears in his mailbox the following day. A subsequent encounter with a professor who is also on John's flight and has been studying the scrolls reveals that the scrolls were written in 5 or 6 B.C. and buried in a wooden box that was assembled in the 1600s. Though there was, according to legend, a ninth scroll, it has yet to be recovered. A late-night stroll on the streets of Lima soon leads John into the company of Father Jose, who later disappears after a frightening encounter in which a high-ranking operative holds the priest at gunpoint while insisting that he reveal the location of the lost scroll. Later led to Viciente by the guide who was with Father Jose when the cleric discovered the scrolls, John is haunted by dreams of a remote paradise and a young child, setting into motion a spectacular series of events that will ultimately culminate in a transformation of light that promises to reveal the future of humanity.

The movie was okay. The dialogue was too on the nose. It's something you'd expect to see late night on hbo starring john ritter, eric roberts' types. It playes like a novel on screen, so it's cheesy because of time constraints. The concepts and theories of the film are cool, but the movie in general is easy to forget about. The film's about a teacher whose laid off around the same time some magezine lady comes screaming at his door to venture off to peru. Why? well, it seems there are these scrolls of ancient wisdom -- celestine prophecies -- that allow its readers divine insight. Okay? well, the readers of the scrolls go on a walkabout in search of people linked to the scrolls' destiny. While in peru, the teacher gets into all sorts of trouble with the military, catholic church, and 'the captin of das boot.' what? down and out in peru leads the teacher to do what anyone would do: find the last scroll to the celestine prophecy. I expected "what dreams may come" with shining path, instead of people staring at flowers and trees for help.

This movie has more insight than most. The message that this movie provides is refreshing and something we all need to think about. As far as the acting, it could have been better but it was nice to watch something that did not show blood and guts. The message is what makes this movie great.

If you ever wanted to have your life change for the better, these books I recommend will change your life. I've never been so happy in my life. The movie is excellent as well and will help you visually see what these books discuss. Either way if you down on the dumps and feel like the whole world is shutting you out, read these books, see the movie, you will be amazed. And please, please, share it with your friends and family. I am grateful that my friends have!!!
