This movie took me by storm
1 April 1999 | by (Santiago, Chile) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was 10 years old or so, I had a crush for a girl in my neighborhood and this movie took me by storm. I have not been able to find it in video format. But the story is so simple yet very touching for everybody I know has seen this movie.
