The book of poems from which Sabine reads was actually written by Robert Hass, who plays the part of the poet. Later, when Cally is in the bookstore, both that book and his earlier volume of poems are seen on the shelf. See more »
When Cally first visits Sabine, she is carrying Sabine's diary and a white box of chocolates. Cally put the chocolates on the poet's bedside table as she introduces herself to him. She also returns Sabine's diary to her, and does not get it back again. However, later on in the film we see Cally standing outside the poet's house, and she is once again carrying Sabine's diary and the box of chocolates. See more »
Bland, boring teenage girl starts obsessing over and stalks a beautiful woman (Daryl Hannah) she sees dancing. Then we find out the girl might have a secret connection with this woman and returns a book that belongs to her. Geez, I wonder what could that connection be? I figured it out probably an hour before the movie finally revealed it. It's so obvious by the way they have set the environment so that this girl wouldn't miss anyone if she connected with this person.
Unfortunately when they finally start to meet regularly it isn't heartwarming or special at all, the woman is an emotional wreck who constantly relies on this teenager to look after her and comfort her. The conversations are long and not interesting, the shots of Daryl Hannah can change 5 times within 10 seconds (I thought something was wrong with the video quality!), making me wonder if she couldn't hold back a laugh or something, why else would they need to have so many different shots in such a short time? It also leaves the conversations choppy and it doesn't feel like the actors put much emotion into it as you get the feeling each sentence was done on different days.
I also feel they played the same acoustic guitar melody over, and over, and over... the same bland melody finally made me fall asleep as there was nothing to keep me awake anymore.
