The ending of this film left me in tears, but the good kind where you simply emote from the pleasure of seeing a work of art.
I had to figure out how to log back into my IMDb account, just to express my humble opinion for a moment.
I had to give it a 10/10 because it filled me with the emotion described above -- the entire movie was pure, honest art. The acting was excellent, as well as the entire direction of the film, visually and otherwise.
The film accomplished what it set out to do --share a love story worth remembering. In this case, a special romance that was expressed in the most succinct and captivating way.
What may have cost this movie a star for others (looking at you, 9/10 people), I do not know. I just know that special feeling only certain movies give me after the first watch and this one had it.
