memories everlasting
1 April 2006 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

this is one of the most powerful depiction of two people in love for a quote of, until death do us part. more touching than i could ever imagine. for many years i have waited for a production to be released to the public. a must to see for all couples readying to take their vows or have taken them. at my age i don't remember everything, but i still remember this movie like it was yesterday.it's at the beach, when i look out over the water and i see the movie playing, that my love for my best friend grows stronger. the hard times and the good times are so well portrayed in this movie, that i use some of the lessons learned in my

life today. this movie shows that life may be at times very tormenting, but the love and union of two people can be stronger than any hurdle put before two people that sanction as one. i do hope this movie will be on the market soon, for our new generations to see.
