Forbidden love
9 March 2002 | by (Australia) – See all my reviews

Trust me, it is well worth watching! 2 young people meet at the ballet and start a romance, but politically, they can not be together. He is on one side, she the other, and "there is no 3rd side". Yet they defy everyone and continue to see each other, playing a very dangerous cat and mouse game with their superiors.

The movie itself seemed either very pre-code, or very modern, with the details of their relationship and eventually the news that Anna is to have a baby; when of course she is not married to Ted!

Overall I gave it a 10. It held my interest for the entire time, it was happy, sad, heartwarming and heartbreaking, and some of the suspense would have made Hitchcock proud.
