A excellent movie that captures the essence of cancer
15 February 2000 | by (St. Louis, Missouri) – See all my reviews

This movie, although dry and depressing, captures the fear and anger that young cancer patients face every day. For those people out there who feel that this movie is too much, then I hope you never are stricken with a deadly disease. I have not been that fortunate. I am currently in remission from stage 3b Hodgkin's disease that I fought for 2 years. I am now 23 years old and can identify with both Eva and Claudia in their daily struggles. Although the setting makes this movie seem very cold, the director was trying to show the isolation that cancer patients feel. This is the type of movie that should open our hearts to those who are sick and realize that some people really are going through this kind of pain.
