Very good movie
22 March 2004 | by (Sweden) – See all my reviews

I saw this movie when I was a little boy, just 10 years old. I'm almost 21 now and I will remember this one forever. This is one of those movies you once see, and love so much, but are afraid of not getting another chance to see it again. I have forgotten some parts of the film, and i would do anything to see it again, just to remember it to see if it still would be one of my favourites. So i hope someone reads this and maybe can help me? I liked it so much I sudently got interested of reading Gabriel Garcia Marquez' tales and books, so I told my father to read some of them for me. I now am a big fan of Garcia Marquez. I'm a movie lover and my favourite movies are such as The Usual Supects, The Shawshank Redemption, Memento, Schindler's List, Life is Beautiful + many, many more. Good movie. Please forgive me for my bad english... Peace y'all
