This is the first movie I ever saw.
2 November 2001 | by johnnyayalaSee all my reviews

I remember my stepfather and I, way back, when I was about 8 growing up as a farmer in Puerto rico, made a trip to his brother's house just to see this film on TV. I remember how much I enjoyed it and been a movie buff since. I'm sure the movie is probably not as good as I remember, but it does have a very sad ending.
