I've found it!!
26 April 2004 | by (Sydney) – See all my reviews

I also saw Sunshine only once, in the early 70's, and was deeply affected by it. I remember the movie as very simple, but very powerful. The night I saw it was without doubt the MOST memorable night of my life. I say that because at that age (18) all things seemed possible, and the movie allowed me to express emotions and feeling that had been in the back of my mind for years. Feelings like love, unadulterated by the pressures of society. I'm 30 years older now and it amazes me that even today I hold the memories dear. I've been lately thinking About my life's time All the things I've done And how it's been And so I found this message board. Mike
