I just saw this movie and was surprised to see so little comments on its page. This movie is a true little gem. The performances of the actors are excellent and the story is interesting from both the historical and the character aspect of the script. The movie is also very romantic so you can maybe use it as a nice way of spending an evening with your girlfriend/boyfriend or wife/husband.
Excellent photography, nice costumes and all around emotional performances that make you really fall in love with the characters make this movie an real surprise. The only problem that I have with it is that it is maybe a little too long. I found myself looking at the watch a couple of times.
