A beautiful romance movie!
27 February 2009 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie when it first came out. Lambert Wilson is so handsome in this movie, I like him better with facial hair! Those eyes, his lips his demeanor and stature, God he makes me hot!! LOL! And I'm 56 years old! LOL! But he can still stir up some hot feelings in me! What a talented actor!! I love his eyes in this movie and the music is so haunting. If you're a sucker for romance than this movie is for you! It has a gorgeous love scene it. Not tawdry, or nasty, just beautiful the way two people in love should look on camera. I wish more romance movies were made this way! I wish Lambert Wilson would seriously think about doing more American movies! I didn't realize he was in the "Matrix Reloaded" movie, because personally, I haven't watched any of them. Also I didn't know he had a major role in the recent "Sahara" movie in 2005!! Wow! Where have you been all my life Lambert, c'mon. Please start doing more American movies! We LOVE YOU!

And for you guys out there, Brooke's loves scenes are gorgeous, she's so beautiful and I think you guys would enjoy it!!:)
