During the scene shot at Balbriggan County, Dublin, a Northern Ireland Railways GM locomotive 113 passes in the background, with a passenger train. The sound dubbed in is a British Rail HST railcar set, which is quite different. The sound
effect is also too short; most of the train passes silently. See more »

Unconditional love transcends all boundaries, real or imagined.
From a philosophical viewpoint, this movie illustrates unconditional love, which is not that prevalent in our present world. We could all learn some things from this movie, if we chose to do so.
I regret that I am only ten (10) years behind in seeing and understanding this work.
The entire cast and crew were excellent in their work and the writer deserves tremendous credit for such insight and understanding of the degree of heart and soul which can and does exist in some people.
I would recommend it to anyone who is attempting to understand humanity and some of the trials and tribulations it puts itself through.
It is classified as a "teaching movie" specializing in unconditional love, or "fiction with a definite positive purpose". Beautiful work.
