Very nice story, but a bit too sentimental
25 November 2003 | by (Geilenkirchen, Germany) – See all my reviews

This is actually a very nice movie with good actors, a very imaginative plot and some great cinematography. But the extremely melodramatic music made some scenes almost impossible for me to take them serious, although this definitely is a serious movie about love and death. A bit more humor would have helped to increase the overall impression, though.
