Please keep in mind that I am a movie watcher, I don't care much for "the deeper meaning" behind it. I work hard, life is tough, I see all the pain and suffering in the day to day grind. I watch movies for the pleasure. OK? OK.
I haven't seen this gem in many years. I rented it from the big "B" video rental store over and over again. If I had more of a criminal bent, I'd have made myself a copy, or even better "lose" it and pay them for it. It is a lovely movie with a happy ending. It evoked emotions, made me believe it. The characters were real and at the same time larger than life. The actors were all accomplished in their craft. The location was perfect. I'm not one to pay attention to how they made the movie unless it stinks, this one made me notice how VERY well it was done. This is probably my all time favorite. I tried to expose friends to it, but with little success. I choose to believe that I am right and the rest of the world is wrong in regards to this particular movie. If you ever get a chance, try this one.
