Not great, not bad, just a good way to kill some time
9 June 2002 | by (Gothenburg, Sweden) – See all my reviews

It´s an ordinary movie about love with difficulties, boy with dangerous job (forest-fire fireman), meets girl, who's,holy damn, ALSO has been a fireman. I do not regret in any way that I saw this movie, but if I had brought it myself....I would be a little disapointed...to say the least. (I got it as a Christmas present along with some other better movies) There are really not much more I can say about this movie, it´s simply too plain, those movies goes thirteen by the dozen.

If any TV network sends it, why not give it a chance, but as of a buy-to-have DVD, there are a s**tload of better movies to spend your money on.
