Incredibly Romantic Movie
29 February 2000 | by See all my reviews

Nice to see a great Canadian film! This movie is one of the most romantic movies I have seen. The sex scenes were so tastefully done that you felt so happy that they were able to express the love and passion that they felt. The interaction between all of the major characters is quite believable. This is a must see movie if you are a romantic at heart.
