Based on a true story of a blind man who regains eyesight and is able to see. This movie is beautifully written. Although I have not read the book or original material related to the movie, I would definitely say that it is an enjoyable couple's movie, a movie about the bonds of love despite all the "handicap stigmas," and how a couple finds a deeper meaning to their lives.
Good movie, worth the viewing..........

There were parts of this movie that will make you wish that you were blind(and deaf) these are just all the parts that Mira Solvino was around for, I'm sorry she just can't do romanitic commidies.
Kilmer was great playing a blind man who is given his sight and has no idea how to react to it. His performance at least is something everyone should see.

Kilmer gives a caring and powerful performance as a masagge therapist whose blind and encounters the lovely Mira Sorvino and they fall romantically in love, its just great, then Kilmer goes and gets his blind eyes fixed and then he can see but hes not adapted to the world with its shapes and sizes and then he goes blind again at the end. you cant take your eyes of Kilmer, you really care for his character and what hes going threw and Nathan Lane is great as the blind school teacher.

A sentimental true life story.Simply wonderful and touching.
I really felt sorry for "Virgil(Val Kilmer)" but thanks God things went at least a bit better for him in the end.

I love Oliver Sack's writings. He is a real intellectual who also writes beautiful prose about strange yet beautiful world of neurology. His books were made into a few movies and they were more or less a disappointment. I think this one might be a better one (especially compare to Awakening), although I can't help hoping that one day a geat director will turn one of Dr. Sack's hauntingly beautiful story into a fine movie.
One minor thing about Sorvino. I found her to be adorable and loveable. However her state of the art make-up was very distracting. I know she is supposed to be a sophisticated new yorker but her $1000/hour makeup-artist perfected face (especially her multi colored eye shadows and Always perfected painted red mouth) in every frame of the movie distracted from her fine acting ability. Did anyone else felt the same way? maybe it was just me....:)

I live in a suburb of Atlanta, Ga. I work at this store in my town and the real Virgil and Amy Jennings come in there all the time. The wife (Mrs. Jennings) has a web site that she always mentions to all of us all the time that is Jenningsart.com. She always talks about making her eggs and how she paints them and stuff like that. She always reminds us that one is in the White House and another is in the Smithsonian museum. She is nice and her husband Virgil (who is blind) is nice too, but what is so funny is how neither her nor her husband look like Val Kilmer or Mira Sorvino. They could have never looked or acted like either one of the Actors.
Mrs. Jennings is constantly making reprints of pictures of Val Kilmer and Mira Sorvino's visit to there house a couple of years ago. Everyone I know who has worked at the store I work at has at one time been in possession of one of the pictures because Mrs. Jennings loves to make copies of them and pass them out. I guess it was her 15 minutes, and she's gonna spread it out into 1500 more. :). They are both good people I guess, but my main point here is how I experienced first hand how "hollywood" and most of the entertainment business can't stop ruining good stories. They refuse to belive that real life can be interesting. Instead they have to cast two well know actors to play two people who are nothing like them. They just want to sell sell sell. Which I guess isn't such a bad thing except there comes a point in time where everything becomes diluted and worn out and that is when people start looking for something real, and I hope it's soon because if I see another weird Tom Cruise movie or another remake of an old classic like the Spider Man or Scooby Doo movie that has just come out, I think I will just stop watching television and stop going to the movies all together.
Thats all.
Thanks.
D. J.

Charming little movie about an architect (Mira Sorvino) whom falls in love with a blind Massage therapist (Val Kilmer) whilst on holliday at a weekend retreat. This is a good movie to watch if you are in a "Sleepless in Seattle" mood or a "When Harry meet Sally" frame of mind.

"At First Sight" delivers the basics of romantic story, but takes too long time to tell its story, so you might want to cut the tape of your own copy to make its running time much shorter. Fortunately, the two leads are very likable characters (and the film credits tell us it is based on a true story), and the chances are you never feel wasted your time.
It's about blind Virgil (Val Kilmer), who loves hockey-playing, and New Yorker Amy (Mira Sorvino), who meets Vigil at a hotel, and falls in love with him. As she found an article on the possibility of restoring sight, she suggests he take the chance (actually, the film tells that very few people had ragained their sight after long time of blindness). The operation succeeds, but it turns out much harder than he expected for Virgil to handle the situation with the newly given power of sight. For example, he cannot tell an real apple from a picture of an apple; or he cannot feel the distance between him and what he sees, so things coming in his direction would inevitably hit him in the head. Now he had to learn "seeing." The story is very good.
However, the script is too uneven. We don't need any episodes about Amy's ex-husband; though as Virgil's sister Kelly McGillis shows good performance, she sometimes delays the speed of the film, and seems to tell us too obvious things about Virgil's life. And most of all, the film is making a potentially tragic nature of the original story too sentimental. But as I said before, Kilmer and Sorvino both make such an amiable couple that you may forgive these shortcomings as the film goes on. And wait for always reliable Nethan Lane as a slightly eccentric therapist. He never fails to deliver the good moment though this time a little short.
