Quotes

Rudi Miller: Never before have I see hair of such luxurious length. Tell me, has it never been cut?
Beth Atherton: No.
Rudi Miller: Then whoever issued that command was very wise!
Beth Atherton: It was my father, and he did not issue commands. I had Scarlett Fever when I was three, and I had to have my hair cut off. When it grew back, my father asked me never to cut it again... and I never will.
Rudi Miller: You speak of you father in a past tense. Nicht wahr?
Beth Atherton: Both my parents died when I was a child.
Rudi Miller: Yesterday?
Beth Atherton: I'm 18!
Rudi Miller: [laughs] Forgive me?
Beth Atherton: Ok. Now please get out.

Touching Love Story
19 February 2000 | by (New York) – See all my reviews

I thought that this was a very cute, touching love story. Marie Osmond always has such a kindness and sweetness about her that I couldn't help but care for her character and feel for her when she was being forced into a arranged marriage all the while her heart was with another man. I thought that the movie was very well done and it is the type of movie you walk away moved by.
