Major tear-jerker...
14 August 2001 | by (Singapore) – See all my reviews

I think I saw only the ending some few years ago on HBO, but I remember being moved to tears. Literally. I hardly cry during movies, but this one was so touching that the floodgates opened. And I don't believe I saw the whole thing. So if you have a chance to see this movie, be sure to catch it. I, for one, would definitely make it a point to see the whole thing if I ever have the chance.
