This movie provoked much more of an effect than I'd have liked., 9 June 2006
Author: danandchad from United States

The movie starts a little maudlin. Homeward bound for his family holiday, he meets a young woman on a train. He brings her home with him, and the family assume they are a couple and have been. He introduces her to a past friend, with undertones that it was a previous unrequited love interest. As she moves away from him towards a relationship with that friend, loneliness sets in. It brought back feelings of loneliness and emptiness, combined with anger and jealousy I felt at those ages (having been in the same scenario coming of age). To say it's better to have loved and lost has no bearing in this story. To see someone come of age with a story as this one rarely has a good outcome; I survived, many do not. The story takes a real almost unrealized twist toward the end, all I will say is pay attention to names and time-lines. I know my past was not the norm and hopefully most people seeing this movie, would be viewing it as the abstract life of another. No one should live through that pain and emptiness. I cried for an hour after the film was over.
