Loved the acting; the characters; the story and the music.
22 February 2000 | by (New York, New York) – See all my reviews

I loved this film. As an Italian-American, I could readily identify with the characters in this movie and found it to be very heartwarming and realistic. Unfortunately, I cannot say the same about "The Sopranos" which shows Italian-Americans in the most negative and humorless way imaginable. "True Love" depicted the closeness and genuine warmth between family members and friends and made me forget that I was watching a movie. Recommend it highly!
