Magnificent, aren't they? "God's tears".
Yeah. It's beautiful. So are the others, I... I guess I just have to make the right decision.

I hadn't heard of this film before seeing it, but I was pleasantly surprised. It was suspenseful, even "gripping", with a touching and romantic plot. Overall, a movie definitely worth renting.
The film begins a bit slowly but picks up very nicely about 30 minutes into it. There are a few twists and turns that will keep your attention. The acting was quite good, albeit with little-known actors except for Josh Hartnett of Blackhawk Down.
The best part of this film was the clever way the story all comes together towards the end, including the flashback style which was very well done.
