such a lovely film...
11 August 2002 | by vivi gucciSee all my reviews

and very true to the book! the actress who plays Eve is wonderful (you'll cheer her on), but Pierre is a little too old. the pain of the characters is captured beautifully in the dialogue. see if you can find this movie. it's worth it.
