The title refers to what's left when we depart this life. And it's a fitting title, because, if you slog through this overlong movie, you could feel like departing this life, too. There are two stories going on. In one, a present-day thief (Arian Lester) befriends a cranky old lady (Rosemary Murphy) to get her secret stash of gold. The other tale is set in the old West and concerns two mercenary brothers (Joseph Fiennes and David Wenham) fighting over the same woman.
There are parallels between the past and present, and each is spelled out in giant capital letters so that the audience can't miss a single overworked, labored point. It's a clumsy, pretentious, dull movie--the kind that thinks it's way more important than it is. If there's justice, it will get swept up and tossed in the garbage.
