The most beautiful love story I've ever seen. And it's for real.
19 February 2007 | by (Bromma, Stockholm, Sweden) – See all my reviews

Bob Claunch and Jack Reavley, two guys in their late 70's, tell the story of their life long relationship. With the help of old footage and recordings they take us back to when they met, in the US Army in Munich, and they then guide us through their whole lives, through sickness and health, the good times and the bad times. The interviewer mostly lets Bob and Jack themselves take care of the talking, but when he intervenes, he asks daring and relevant questions.

It's pretty, it's cute, it's beautiful, but most of all; it's important. The story of Bob and Jack is more than just a tribute to Bob and Jack themselves, it's more than a film about homosexuality. It's also a film about sticking together, about making it through the rough times, and it teaches us the most important thing of all; that love can't keep us together unless we are willing to work for it, and that if we are, nothing is impossible.
