It grips to your heart and never let go
4 May 2009 | by (London, England) – See all my reviews

It seems like I'm the first to comment on this movie so let me just get straight to the point. This is a special film. A very very special film. It is worthy as a birthday present in its own.

The acting from Ananda (Shutter and Me...Myself)delivers as well as Chayanan. The directing are progressive and impressive. It started out as a simple romantic/comedy. As soon as it reaches 1/3 of the film, I'm awestruck. There is something in this film that is worth mentioning and worth watching more than words alone can describe. I won't type any part of the story in here to spoil it for you. The only thing I can say is....go watch it. Go watch it now.

There are many interesting points in this film that can be interpretted in various ways. But it all sums up to two things: what is happiness and there is not much time. There isn't much time indeed. We should do what we want to do now than letting another second slipped from our hands. We have what we have and we cherish it. Loving someone is not duty, it's free will dictated by love. Like that quote from 'If Only': "Love her. Just love her. There isn't much time."

This movie wins a 9/10 from me. This is as much of an art movie as it is of a tragic love story. Sit back, and enjoy the genuine love feeling building up inside you.
