Eben Adams (Joseph Cotten) is a struggling artist. However, he finds inspiration to paint from the heart from his strange encounters with Jennie (Jennifer Jones) who seems to have returned from the dead. Do they remain together forever?
This film has a good cast and an interesting theme of lost love as 2 people search for what is important to them. We follow Eben as he gradually realizes that Jennie belongs in another time. Yet, somehow the strands of time have woven their lives together and this gives them both hope. Although the film is meant to be inspirational, I came away with a feeling of tragedy and a sense of sadness.
There are many memorable scenes including the lighthouse segment with the tidal wave at the end of the film. My favourite moment comes when Eben visits Mother Mary of Mercy (Lillian Gish) in the convent which Jenny attended. It is the moment when Eben learns of Jennie's true fate and he realizes what he must do. The scene ends with the nun kneeling down to pray for him and it is accompanied by an effective musical score.
A haunting film that may bring a tear to your eye but also a belief in the idea of an impossible love being made possible.
