The plot of this movie itself is very ordinary and simple...no love triangles, no memory loss or anything...:) Two people fall in love, fall out of it (or not?...who cares...), make love, cheat, divorce - that's it. So what's so special about this movie? I must say it's that special mood that filled me after watching it. As many movies, this one postulates that life's not so great after all - people may be mean, bad things happen, everything good ends one day, but even so it's worth living and to be more specific - it's worth to love. Fact, that we see events developing backwards highlights this idea. At the end of the movie no one actually remembers the beginning (divorce) - audience is just so moved by by this beautiful, banal love story...and I must say that it should be this way always. Who cares, that love won't last forever - what's more important, is that it exists!
