a wonderful, moving movie., 21 July 2000
Author: jhogan7621

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.
