The two eventually form a close friendship, each drawing wisdom and strength from each other allowing him to write the final chapter on his romance with his wife before succumbing to cancer and inspiring her to find a lost love.

Goofs

I'm not sure if this counts, but at one point, Cara is signing a letter to send to the author and putting it in a priority mail envelope. She then folds the edge over to seal it, but she never removed the protective strip, so it wouldn't have stuck. See more »

Cara Thompson: Where do you want to start?

Out of the ordinary
25 September 2003 | by (Detroit, MI) – See all my reviews

Finally, a film with content and true character development. The Kiss, which I viewed at the San Diego Film Festival, is one of the most refreshing films I've seen for a long time. Is it setting the scene for a turnaround in the American film style? I hope so. The storyline flows elegantly throughout the scenes from beginning to end. A realistically rendered emotional scene with Terrence Stamp and Francoise Surel toward the end only makes you wish that the film would not end so soon. A genuine change from the vapid, in-your-face, so-called dramas we have been subjected to over the last few years. This film brings the whole concept of movie watching up a notch. Highly recommend it.
