I once read the best-selling book "Eat, Pray Love" by a New York-based woman, in which she wrote many times about her conversations with God when she was confused. I was skeptical, and even more convinced that God's words to her were actually her own thoughts. But can't find a reason to do it.

My guess is backed up in this movie, Alex is actually an otaku who doesn't want to be around people, and has a quirky temper. In the past 20 years, whenever he was confused, he always liked to turn to God for help, but could not respond, so he wrote down his confusion and tried to answer it by himself. ” and became popular all over the world.

But he accidentally met Elizabeth, a holistic doctor, during a back injury, and fell in love inevitably. In building, breaking, and restoring relationships, Alex realizes his helplessness, so he reveals his secrets to the public for the first time - he is not a god who can communicate with God, he is also a trapped person, everyone They are all looking for answers.


The heroine's 8-year-old son, Chris, is very lovable. When his biological father left him, he told him that he would come back after leaving for two weeks, but he never came back. So, Chris was confused, math was very bad, and one day he asked Alex, "How long is two weeks?" Seeing Alex's look of astonishment, he said "it's okay, I don't know the answer."


This is a romance, It's very romantic, but it also reveals the author's philosophy. When confused people turn to God for help, it's like facing a mirror and seeing themselves in it.
