Romance by the water.
10 April 2005 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

I enjoyed the story. It's romantic and fascinating. I was impressed by the images and the initial confusion of the story line. I don't think it's possible to find this movie on DVD. But its quality is superb. I totally understood what the character of Hannah went through. It's a little sad and a bit romantic, but I wouldn't say more just in case you came across it. I never got to know where it was shot. It looks like there's a lake, but it's hard to figure it out. I also enjoyed the train part, in which the guy -the person she's infatuated with- seems to ignore her. I thought the two actors were perfect for the parts. Very interesting movie.
