Trivia

Parts of the film were made in -40 degree temperatures. And then +40 degree temperatures. See more »

Goofs

There are two scenes where helicopters are used: in Cambodia when 'Vietnamese' helicopters pass overhead and on the Chechnyan border. Both of these scenes were US-made Bell helicopters, the UH-1 Huey. It would be more factual to use Russian-made helicopters in these instances, particularly in Cambodia. See more »

Quotes

[first lines]
Sarah Jordan: I wonder, do we all know where we belong? And if we do, in our hearts, why do we so often do nothing about it? There must be more to this life, a purpose for us all, a place to belong. You were my home. I knew from the moment I met you, that night, so many years ago.

15 July 2004 | by (New Zealand) – See all my reviews

I was absolutely amazed by this film. It has changed my entire perspective on life. After seeing this I want to smack myself for every time that I've ever complained. Ever been depressed. Ever "suffered". I am very disappointed that Beyond Borders was not released in cinemas in my country, and did not do well worldwide. I think it could touch so many more lives like it did my own. I am so much more grateful for what I and everyone else in the Western world have/has. We have very little to worry and stress about. Our lives are so trivial and we need to understand just how lucky we are. On top of it being an amazingly meaningful movie, it has a very well developed storyline with excellent acting by both Angelina Jolie, Clive Owen and everyone else.

Please see this movie. It is wonderful and breathtaking and emotional and heartwarming and covers almost every other feeling you could have.

And if you are one of the people brave enough to do something about the situations discussed in the movie, I thank you so much, from one human to another.
