an ideal, stirring romance
15 May 2003 | by (milwaukee, wi) – See all my reviews

One might think this movie is doomed to obscurity due to its overall lack of stylistic individuality. It's trite story-line is an easy target, too. However, for some reason, this motion picture totally won me over. This can be attributed to what i feel are the films three striking qualities: fluid character chemistry, naive but beautiful innocence, and a gentle, almost ideal humanistic touch.

There is nothing wrong with relating to some of the predictable ideals this movie outlines. I found myself getting lost in the era- the music, history, and politics of the mid 40's were all way before my time. Perhaps this is what drew me in... The romance between David and Janet is very sweet. As a result, the integrity of these main characters is very enchanting. What might seem on the surface as a predictable B-movie is actually a gentle and reassuring stroke of simplicity... a calm breath of fresh (and inspiring) air amidst today's loud and obnoxious box office hum drum.
