It shows a life.
10 February 1999 | by (Seoul, Korea) – See all my reviews

I've seen this movie on TV. The song - Because you loved me - sung by Celine Dion is pretty good. I like the song. But the most important thing is that it showed me my life. I'm a male. But Michelle had a great ambition like me. Finally she ranked the first position in broadcast world. I hope to be like her. We will make our dreams as we have wished to be. I believe you make your dream, and me too. also looooove.
