Beautiful
5 August 2003 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This movie was so beautiful and so moving, I cried while watching it.

I was impressed by the visual style and completely unaware of the acting - that's how caught up I was.

I prefer the music on the original film as Saturn before it was redone as Speed of Life.

One of my very favorite movies.
