Haunting Love Story-Unforgettable
20 October 2002 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie only once more than 30 years ago, when I was very young-about 16 or so in NY. I have never forgotten the plot, and whenever I would ask someone about it, no one was able to tell me about it until today. The impact this move made on me was lasting.

I loved the characters and always felt that it was one of the most under-rated love stories ever written. It's a great movie for watching on a cold winter night with your loved one by your side.
