Love it or hate it. I saw this at Westdale theatre when it came out. There's a compelling family story here and some very good scenes (Where were you / You spoke to me / I give you my son) which were so moving they gave me chills.
Then, there was the creation of the world stuff and the dinosaurs, which unfortunately I am not sophisticated a film goer enough to appreciate. Although I was not the only one who thought so, several people walked out during the screening.
Only film I've ever watched where I'm literally hitting my head on the seat in front and saying "No, not the dinosaurs again!" Someone should do a "Phantom Edit" and cut out most of the distracting superfluous stuff, there just might be a good 75 minute film in here.
