The title comes from a poem written by scriptwriter Frederick Stahl. He was a friend of Heather Rose and the poem appeared in an early draft of the script. It reads: "Whatever fate may thrust at me. I'll never be the same. I've had less fear of times to be. Since first I heard your name. I need to feel secure from harm. I will not keep you long. Please hold me tight within your arm. And dance me to my song." See more »
Although quite difficult to watch because of some of the violence, it is a very realistic portrait of a young handicapped girl and her care-giver. Having taught children and adolescents with these kinds of handicaps, I and my wife were completely enthralled and could not leave our TV screen. Yes we winced at some of the violence and hoped for a good ending, but this is a must movie. Ironically, this kind or movie does not show up on English TV but was shown on Canada's French language "life" network! What a pleasure! An excellent picture. Oh, I forgot... the movie, even though shown on a French language network, was not dubbed, so if you wish to view this excellent picture, please watch "Aime-moi telle que je suis". An experience you won't forget!
