Storyline

A homely maid and a scarred ex-GI meet at the cottage where she works and where he was to spend his honeymoon prior to his accident. The two develop a bond and agree to marry, more out of loneliness than love. The romantic spirit of the cottage, however, overtakes them. They soon begin to look beautiful to each other, but no one else. Written by Daniel Bubbeo <dbubbeo@cmp.com>

Excellent
11 October 1998 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

This is without a doubt one of my all time favorite films though very few people I know have ever seen it. It is a story of true love as never seen before. If you have never seen it, make a point to do so. If you love romance films, you will love this one.
