I saw this movie when i was 13 . It shook my heart a lot . Well , i actually had forgotten the name of the movie and the stars . Until today when i was intentionally searching for it on the net . Its a good touching movie that will make you wonder .Why this has to happen? the background music is also good. Sidney Poiter acting was natural and touching. He really deserved an Oscar for this movie.
My favorite scene is that when Elizabeth cried on the rain. I don't know why i had the feeling of immense emotions at that scene. See it and enjoy WITH your tears!
Its a privilege to watch it.
