This is a great film.
3 January 2000 | by (Albany, California, USA) – See all my reviews

Cherie Lunghi is marvelous in this movie. I could watch "Letters to an Unknown Lover" over and over again. Mathilda May is good in this and she looks great with her clothes off. The editing of the movie is good and creates a great effect.
