I would recommend this move to anyone who wants to view a story that presents enduring love and perseverance.
14 November 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

This is a beautiful love story....but it is also an excellent example of patience, perseverance and never giving up on those you love. It also gives the viewer an insight of how life can make many twists and turns and one must look deep inside themselves to go on and do what is necessary to deal with whatever life throws at you.

It is a story that can inspire young people (especially women) to not be defeated by the curves life throws at them. It also shows how real love can endure through most anything...even death.

This movie moves me to laughter and tears throughout the presentation. It makes me want to pattern my life and ideals after the main characters (Zoya and her husband).
