Emblazoned in my memory
13 August 2003 | by (Alberta, Canada) – See all my reviews

The day I was watching this movie, I went into labour with my second son, who has now passed away., therefore this particular movie has stuck itself into my memory, and when a friend told me today of this website, I had to see if it was listed....and it was.

I never actually saw the entire movie, and would now love to purchase it if at all possible.

Thank you. Mary Anne Sibley
