Love the memories
21 July 2010 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I was 23 when I saw Sandcastles in '72, and absolutely loved it. Anytime I hear Sibelius's Finlandia I think of this movie, although for the longest time I couldn't remember the name or cast of the movie, although I could picture the main players. I just heard the music again, and had to search...and I found this site. Now I know that I'm not totally out of my mind. The cast was perfect, as was the music. I knew from the first strains of Finlandia, and watching Bonnie Bedelia's face as she played the violin, that this was going to be a wonderfully romantic movie, and that romance, along with the "mystery", made for an unlikely combination to equal a fantastic movie. Yes, it should be repeated, at least a few more times. Let the younger generations see what a true romance is.
