Goofs

Although constantly referred to as a "hero", Slick Novak's naval uniform only has his aviator wings; there are no ribbons to indicate that he had received any award or decoration for being a hero. In reality, he would have worn any and all ribbons to which he was entitled, per Navy regulations. See more »

What I Liked About This Film
26 November 2001 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

Possible *Spoiler*

What I liked about this film was the dialogue. Yes, the dialogue. To me, this film was about two people who were struggling with their inner desires, disappointments, hurts and longings. Both main characters were somewhat stiff in social situations. The uneasiness between them was understandable to me because of their past experiences.

The romantic scenes were awkward in my opinion because of a spinster who is within her shell; and a man struggling with his inner desire to be a priest. Plus it appears the characters were two introverts.

Yes indeed, the film was slow moving, just like real life is sometimes. I do not mind slow moving films, for films should not always be about speed and excess of excitement. There were some really good moments in this film. If you do not mind a story unfolding slowly, with an emphasis on dialogue, check out this film.
