What Dreams May Come is a beautiful and haunting metaphysical tale of life after death.

Neurologist Chris (played by Robin Williams) and his artist wife Annie (played by Annabella Sciorra) had a fairy-tale life until they lost their children in an auto accident. No sooner do they begin to recover when Chris meets his own untimely death.

Chris meets up with an angel named Albert (played by Cuba Gooding Jr.) who gives him a tour of his afterlife. The images are stunning--with Chris cavorting through vibrantly colorful, impressionistic, oil-painted terrain.

Meanwhile, Annie becomes depressed and takes her own life. Chris must then traverse heaven and hell to save Annie from an eternity of despair. The mystical themes that I enjoyed in this movie are that of redemption, the power of love even beyond the grave, and life after death.
