So let's see if words can somehow transfer some of the feelings related to this movie.. At least some portion of these feelings.
Because let me tell you something, they are a lot! This movie is taking you on a roller-coaster of sweetness, attraction, love, desire, heartbreak and everything between.
One of the most striking part of this movie is the usage of "silly superficial" love-romance music while all hell breaks loose after a certain point.
In a very subtle yet powerful way the movie absorbs you and has you hooked. But you realise it after it's "too late"...
I must admit that at some points it felt too much to take. But I cannot view such a thing as negative. It only enhances, it only adds to the rich and depth of feeling.
I understand it can be frustrating dealing with difficult issues such as illness and emotional pain. Yet this movie somehow manages to tie it all together maintaining a sweetness, keeping a certain attitude towards life that I cannot but applaud. To me it seems as though it is layered with several stories acting as background for each other or completing each other in a way.
But be warned. Tears will come.
It's up to you to decide if you wanna be on the ride.
Thank you for reading.
