There's a lot of good things you can say about this film
There are a lot of good things you can say a bout this movie. The subject - the impossible love of a dying person - is important and not so common in film. The film is told in a slow but not in a dull pace. The emotions are present but stay below the surface and therefore never become sentimental. But despite of that, the film failed to move me. Why? I really don't know. Maybe it's the predictability of the story. From the very beginning you know those two people will love each other and this love will be impossible. Or maybe it's just missing this magic thing that some films seem to have and others don't.
