Love story da groppo in gola per due 'belli e impossibili' di Hollywood, di quelle che ti fanno sperare per tutto il film in un eccezionale lieto fine. In una New York autunnale ed umida, Will è uno chef cinquantenne molto amato dalle donne e senza storie troppo lunghe da raccontare, Charlotte è una ventenne dalla salute precaria ed entrambi sono convinti che la loro avventura durerà poco. Sarà vero? Ma l'amore può essere più forte di tutto quando un male incurabile sta minando il fisico della ragazza? Written by
Not screened in advance for critics. Both Richard Gere and Winona Ryder spoke out publicly against this move, saying it damned the film's credibility. MGM countered that the reason for the action was that they didn't want critics spoiling the film's "surprise" ending. See more »
When Charlotte is ice skating, Will says "The judges give it a 10! A perfect 10!" In the sport of figure skating, a perfect score is 6.0 - gymnastics is the sport where 10 is a perfect score. See more »
You don't want to die! You want to live!
You don't think I've been through this so many times? I don't want to give people hope when there isn't any!

This film has been savaged by critics and it's easy to see why. The story is oooollllllddddd (young girl dying of an incurable disease) and some of the dialogue is beyond belief. But it is well-acted (Ryder and Gere give two of their best performances) and it looks beautiful. Basically the acting and photography kept me in my seat. Take those things away and it would probably be unwatchable. So, not too bad but not good either.
