A movie that pulls at your heartstrings
6 June 2005 | by (United Kingdom) – See all my reviews

I loved this movie, it is a very emotional piece and the two leads do brilliantly. Vincent D'Onofrio does a very good Scottish accent ( very sexy one too ) despite being around 30 at the time he and Greta ( his off screen girlfriend )made this film the makeup is very convincing for his ages ( 19-50 ).

George falls in love with Gavin, but her new life of the arts appeals more to her and she rejects Gavin because his lifestyle doesn't interest her, but they continue their love affair regardless of the obstacles in the way, spanning the globe from Paris to Montreal.

The love scenes between the two actors is very realistic conveying the passion that they feel for one another all the more emotional for the viewers. Despite Georges treatment of him, Gavin continues to love her. She tells him she loves him in the end, but it is too late and is left to her memories and regrets at the close of the film.
