A Great Drama and Very Moving Film.
13 December 2006 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

This film was found to be very emotional upon its release in the U.K. All fine actors both Martin Sheen, Blythe Danner and the late David Hemmings all gave excellent performances, yet alone all the child actors especially the young french son Jean Claude who most people would have thought had the beginning of an excellent film career ahead of him. The location scenes in France were beautiful as was the music accompanying this.Yes a sad film but one that holds you especially with the traumatic scenes throughout. This film was in comparison very much on the lines of Love Story, and definitely better than the sequel to Love Story, entitled Feelings, which was of poor quality. I like many other people cannot understand why when there is so much rubbish being released on DVD when this excellent little sleeper of a film is begging for re-release.
