a wonderful, moving movie.
21 July 2000 | by See all my reviews

Please go see this film. It is what movies used to be in the golden age of cinema. Simple, moving, a joy. The performances are award winning. And I heard the movie was done for less then $600,000.00. Wow! The music alone makes this movie worth seeing. A pure film from start to finish.
