one of the best from my younger days
16 January 2007 | by (Canada) – See all my reviews

While doing a search on your website to find out what other movies Robert Englund was in besides A Nightmare on Elm Street I came across a movie that I haven't thought of in years, Buster and Billie. I immediately felt this wave of emotion. I was 20 when this movie was released and although I couldn't remember right away the whole plot of the movie I remembered it as one of my favourites. After reading some of the story line and talking to my husband who has a much better memory than I do I realized why my feeling at the mere mention of the title was so extreme. It was wonderful albeit very, very tragic. My husband also remembers it as being one of his favourites. I don't know if I want to ever watch it again or just keep the memory of a film that touched me deeply years ago.
