Trivia

Around the time that the movie was released, 'Robert de Niro' said of the teaming of Streep and himself: "I was always thinking of something I could do with Meryl, a play, a film, anything. We had a reading and began to see possibilities in it". Meryl Streep added "We wanted something real, something awkward and crumpled". See more »

Quotes

Molly Gilmore: [talking to Isabelle about Frank] No, I think about him every day. Last thought before I fall asleep and first thought when I wake up. I talk to myself all day about him, even when I'm talking to somebody else, even when I'm talking to you now I'm talking to myself about him. Brian thinks I'm ill, he thinks that it has to do with my father, he thinks the stress and, you know, all that... Thinks I'm having a breakdown, but I'm not, there's nothing wrong with me. Except that I love him.

Love sees no reason
17 September 2006 | by (Kolkata, India) – See all my reviews

The passion between the protagonists, De Niro and Streep is completely unbelievable. The nuances, the manner in which they fall in love is so completely real, they literally make one want to fall in love again! Streep's presence is natural, her attraction towards de Niro very gradual and in the end completely possessing. Both are brilliant. Dialogues could have had more depth, they lacked substance. Robert de Niro's honest confession to his wife, his helplessness with the feeling he feels towards Molly - it could happen to anyone! I had watched this film when I was only 16, and at double that age now, the emotion I feel is exactly the same! Watch it if you want to know what falling in love feels...
