[about to say "I love you"]
You should stop.
In a heart beat, I could fall so hard. But I'm, I'm not, I'm broken somewhere. Quite broken. So I'd start to think you were stupid for loving me. Then I'd begin to resent you and eventually, I'd hate you.

I don't want anyone (most especially Canadians) to take my criticism of this movie to mean that I have anything but the height of respect for the courage and sacrifice of those who fought and died in WW1. I had the honor of being the first member of our family to pay their respects at the grave of my father's uncle who was killed in action in Belgium in 1916. Standing in the midst of those endless rows of gravestones was one of the most emotional things I've ever done. The futility and scale of loss endured by that generation is beyond imagination. I have also studied this period in history in some detail. That said, I was really interested in seeing this movie. Sadly I was very disappointed. The plot is so unbelievable that it ruins what should have been a realistic account of one of the saddest and most tragic periods in history. It's best described as "Mills & Boon" meets "All Quiet on the Western Front" with "Mills& Boon" winning the day. The film tries to be a war movie and a romance, but succeeds in neither and has to resort to visual clichés of the poorest kind, and a plot tissue-paper thin . I hope somebody makes a fitting tribute to the Canadian dead of WW1 soon, because this is defiantly not it.
