One of the most beautiful movies I've ever seen.
27 March 2004 | by (Sydney, Australia) – See all my reviews

This is just one of those enchanting movies that stays with you. I will definitely see it again on the big screen, and will certainly add it to my DVD collection when it is released. The stunning cinematography, charming storyline and excellent cast make this a must-see. Giovanni Ribisi is in a movie that truly suits him. Adam Garcia just leaps out from the screen, he's such a natural. Amelia Warner is just gorgeous and is so totally right for her role. There isn't one actor who doesn't do his/her role justice. A totally uncynical story, told with warmth and a great fondness for the characters. How wonderful to see a movie that all generations can enjoy together. I sincerely hope there are more of the same from these superb filmmakers. Congratulations.
