The tragedy life of a Borderline Personality
31 October 2004 | by (Israel) – See all my reviews

Its a great movie that shown the tragic life of a female that suffer from a borderline disorder. The sensitivity, she suffering and the way to love are the mean key for the tragedy in the life of the borderline. The movie focus into the life of a couple giving a huge brand of sense to the special way to love and to feel life trough Betty, a young borderline. The borderline disorder provide to the movies the best female personalities, but in real life, this rebel, intelligent, unpredictable people finish on a tragic end. Enjoy this amazing movie.
