Unforgettable
21 July 2003 | by (USA) – See all my reviews

I have found this film to be absolutely unforgettable. Obviously, after seeing many years ago, I am still touched by it. It was a love story that truly touched my heart.

In fact, I am trying very hard to find a copy. I want very much to be able to watch it someday.

If anyone happens to have ANY information, please let me know.

I think this love story got tucked away and shouldn't have. I bet there a lot of people that would love it now, but have no idea it even exists.
