The scenery is breathtaking.
26 July 2000 | by (ft. lauderdale, florida) – See all my reviews

This movie must be seen in the theaters to be appreciated. The scenery is breathtaking. Every frame is like a painting that you can hang on the wall. The songs are memorable. It is a type of film that makes you appreciate life and all its beauty. It also shows how blind people can see and appreciate things much more than those who can see.
