Beautiful, Romantic and Moving Masterpiece!
15 February 2006 | by matt-lairseySee all my reviews

Sometimes it isn't always love at first sight for both of the people involved and you actually have to work at it. That's true for most of us and most of us never have the courage to keep walking such a tenuous thread for another person. This has become my most cherished and favorite film. I love to watch it late at night on weekends - this really brings the atmosphere and music of the film to life. And such a wonderful ambient soundtrack that is woven throughout the film! Settle in one evening with your significant other and put this one on - it will heighten your perception of your relationship and make you appreciate just how much easier it was for the two of you to get together than for the couple in the film.
