I think I cried, but I'm not sure
30 June 2000 | by (Leuven,BE) – See all my reviews

It is a sad movie and it almost made me cry. Tony Kaiser (Richard Dean Anderson) finally finds the love of his life. But when then he has to go fighting in the Vietnam War. Because of a stupid accident, he gets blind. This ruins his life. He doesn't want any visitors. Even his girlfriend Maria isn't allowed to see him. His best friend - and also the person he saved in the War - succeeds in bringing him home, although he swore never to return. That part is the most heart warming. I'm not gonna tell more, just wait and see!
