Quotes

Steven: God's plan is something you'll find in your soul.
Saul Gregor: God's plan?
Steven: Yes. Yes, God's plan. He's got a plan for you, Saul.
Saul Gregor: For you and for me?
Steven: For you. For me. For every living creature on this earth.
Saul Gregor: How does that work... exactly, Steven? How does God choose who gets which plan? See, you got the plan with, uh, a mother, wakes up every morning and makes you breakfast, sees you off to a nice safe school.

Opinion on the movie.
11 May 2007 | by gennylunaSee all my reviews

The movie "Take" is definitely a brain teaser type of movie. I went to see it at the "Tribeca Film Festival" and I really enjoyed it. Its very interesting how it only focuses on the two main characters and how it goes into the present and past and then you end up in the future. Its very fascinating because the movie kind of takes you into a journey into the lives of the main characters Saul and Anna as we see what happens the day that everything changed for them. And its interesting just to see how each of their lives are so different, yet the same in a way. The most important part of the movie and probably the biggest lesson of and in real life is forgiveness. Can we forgive that easily? I found it very interesting. I really enjoyed it, the cast and crew did a wonderful job with it.
