    There was a TV movie called ‘Yesterday’s Children’ that I watched a few years ago. It stars Jane Seymour and has that LMN-vibe...however I actually liked it.

    Then there’s the comedy ‘Defending Your Life’ with Albert Brooks, who is in between lives and sort of ‘on trial’ to see if he goes on or is reincarnated. There is a hilarious scene where he and Meryl Streep go to a place called The Past Lives Pavilion, where they can see what they’re past lives were! There is a cameo appearance by Shirley MacLaine—this scene cracks me up every time I watch it!

    Café de Flore (2011) - "Healing a broken heart isn't easy. Sometimes it takes a lifetime...or two. Cafe de Flore is a love story about people separated by time and place but connected in profound and mysterious ways. Atmospheric, fantastical, tragic and hopeful, the film chronicles the parallel fates of Jacqueline, a young mother with a disabled son in 1960s Paris, and Antoine, a recently-divorced, successful DJ in present day Montreal. What binds the two stories together is love - euphoric, obsessive, tragic, youthful, timeless love." https://www.imdb.com/title/tt1550312/

    It's such a beautiful and tragic film, I cried so much over it.

    My Mom loves The Fountain, for my personal taste it is a bit too kitschy, though.
