I like this movie!!!!
30 November 2000 | by (Texas) – See all my reviews

This movie is about a flutist that has a lame leg. She wants to see if people would treat her differently if they didn't know she was handicapped. So she talks a French doctor into putting a cast on her leg. She does and decides to go into the Mountains to a ski Resort. She finds love, friendship and finds life. Great movie I like Kristy in this movie. The music keeps you into the movie. I still watch it every time I see it on. Something to watch when it is cold outside and want something to watch that makes you laugh. Romance and comedy mixed well. Enjoy!!!
