how heart can make things different
22 February 2001 | by (Milan, Italy) – See all my reviews

Knowing perfectly this is not and extraordinary movie, I have liked it anyway.

I find it especially light even sweet...I have been loving the book very much which is far better than the movie but I think every woman will like the romantic female (zimbalist) leading the film, though seeing the movie imagination has to work a little bit further.
