I can't recall a movie that has ever so totally charmed and captivated me. Like other Jaglom films, this one makes great use of Victoria Foyt, and uses the refreshing method of allowing actors to ad-lib many of their lines. I found this to give the film a fresh, unconstrained feeling well suited to this type of story. I came out of the theater enveloped in a dreamy, warm romantic glow that stayed with me to the next day. I've been checking for this movie to be available for purchase on video ever since! For anyone who believes in fate and its hand in our lives and loves, this is a movie you'll cherish.
