"As it is in Heaven"
The movie is touching profoundly up the simple, yet divine aspects of humanity.

A burned-out maesto, forced to retire by illness, returns to the small village of his birth to become the leader of the church choir, and finally find fulfillment in his music.

Screenwriter and director intended to open hearts with the movie as the musician wanted to do with his music and they succeeded I would say.




Very beautiful!

I bring to You now something really special Smile

"The Holy Mountain" by Alejandro Jodorowsky is a movie made out of symbols - it is something to be not only watched, but seriously studied.

"Heaven is for Real" is a story of a preacher, whose son temporarily leaves his body during an operation and makes a journey to Heaven, where he encounters angels, spirits of people who left the world and Jesus Himself.
Movie tells more of the father of the child than the child itself, as it shows how his faith and sincerity of his beliefs - as well as those who are a part of his congregation - are being tested by this miraculous experience.
The movie is based on a real story and interviews with the boy can be even found online. It is not particularly "charged" in my opinion, but I like the honest and curious attitude of the preacher - couldn't help but conclude he will make a good yogi one day Wink

The following movie is not actually a feature movie. It is a documentary.
It does however tell a story, and one very inspiring and interesting, so I decided to mention it here instead of the thread describing documentaries.

I talk here about "Jodorowsky's Dune" (2013), directed by Frank Pavich.




Alejandro Jodorowsky is an initiated artist. One of his movies - "The Holy Mountain" was mentioned here earlier and it is a remarkable production indeed, full of significant symbols and aimed at providing spiritual impulse and inspiration for the conscious viewer. Inspiration did not leave him after that movie however - he decided to make a movie based on a famous science-fiction novel "Dune", written by Frank Herbert. Preparations lasted two years, with amazing synchronicities at every step of the way. Despite all that, the movie was never made, as no studio wanted to finance it's production. It was a project of huge proportions, ambitious, daring, monumental. It's aim - altering in a beneficial way the consciousness of the viewer rather than simply depicting the content of the book. Widely described as "the greatest movie never made" it influenced generations of filmmakers, who in many cases bluntly used the ideas which Jodorowsky put in the storyline.
Apart from the talk about the Dune, this documentary shows also an Artist and how a Supreme Force guides him on every step of the way, in many cases through amazing synchonisities and inspirations provides solutions to challenges that seemed to be beyond reach.
This passion that Jodorowsky displays and instills in the viewer is amazing... I very much recommend it.

RE: Best Movies with Spiritual Messages
an old favorite of mine is the film karate Kid. i like it because of the way it shows the relationship between a master and his student.
a kid comes to a Japanese master of kartate and asks to be taught. the old master just puts him to sand the floor, wax the car, paint the fence, paint the house - yet being strangely insistent on doing these things in a very particular way. the kid wants to learn karate, but the master insists - wax the car on, wax the car off. eventually it turns out the master was training the student, preparing him for the next steps, laying the ground floor, but at the beginning the student cannot see it. this is why faith and openness are necessary.
here is the scene where the student finally realizes what the master is actually doing:
