Trivia

A lot of the props seen in the film had belonged to the director's grandmother. After she died he emptied her home and put everything into storage for safe-keeping. When the film was made he brought everything out of storage to dress the sets, deliberately featuring key props in prominent camera vision that he had grown up with since he was an infant, such as curtains.

Beautiful mediation on love
21 September 2006 | by (Los Angeles) – See all my reviews

This jewel of a film is strictly for romantics. The film is a quiet character study of a woman who finds the courage to open herself to the possibilities of love and happiness. After a lifetime of repression and fear of disappointing family, the lead character can no longer deny the intense feelings that have developed between herself and her son's schoolteacher, and finally allows herself to experience what she really wants. The film may not contain the flash and raunchiness that many viewers are used to (no kissing, although there is some very heart-warming hand-holding), but for this viewer, it was stirring and captivating, and one of the most vividly romantic pieces I've seen in a long time. Magnificent acting highlighted this beautiful story.
