heartwarming film, superb performances
28 December 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

An overlooked gem of a film, with beautiful music and superb performances.

This film was one of the top grossing films of the year, and its theme song, Wonderful Things, was top of the charts.

The story of a fisherman in Gibralter who falls in love with a beautiful young English girl is told with wonderful grace and humor.

It is almost impossible to find this film, and I have never managed to track down a DVD or VHS recording.

The producers should release it again by 2008 to celebrate the 50th anniversary!
