Sandcastles was the most romantic movie i have ever seen.
1 March 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie over thirty years ago, and I still remember the feeling of it. I would love to see it again. I think it was the most beautiful movie, and it had this haunting feeling that stayed with me for years after the movie was over. I think it made a very huge impression on me as a young person. Jan Michael Vincent's performance was wonderful, and he created a character that was unforgettable, sweet and very sexy. I think it was his best movie, and that is saying a lot. I actually found this site, looking for a copy of the movie, which I suddenly remembered, just out of the blue, after thirty some years. Suddenly I pictured scenes from the movie as I remembered it. I think a movie has to be pretty powerful to still be remembered that way after so long. It is truly an unforgettable movie.
