I first saw the film when screened January 2005 I have since bought the DVD. I loved the whole casting in the film but in particular it was Sinead Cusack performance that delighted me. It lent itself to more in depth story and time spent on characters the brush stroke of the different story lines did however lure me to the book by Rosmunde Pilcher. I had not read her work before too romantic I thought but have since read some of her other works. The story of the film while being different from the book adds to it for a 'new' Pilcher fan. Gentle moving story in film more depth in book and great casting where has that Jan Niklas been very pleasant on the eye.
