I have to agree with all those people that say, this movie isn't a great one. However a lot of people, I think, don't like this movie for the lack of magic. It's obvious this wasn't a big studio production, no mentionable special effects, the filming has a bit of a cheap look and most of all the ending is more down to earth than Hollywood would dare give us. But for me, the end is just the thing that makes up for a lot of the flaws in this film.
Like i said, the movie is not great, boring even at some times (I caught myself checking my watch once or twice), the characters just live their lives with all its ups and downs, they fight, make up and then jealousy makes them fight some more, but this is like real life and it's obvious they do love each other. The end of the story is equally real, something happens which calls for emotional decision making, and although the viewer may not agree (Because IT has all the facts of the story), sadly this is how things usually turn out.
5 points out of 10 for the movie, and one extra just for the ending.
