I saw this movie on the recommendation of an older friend. They had watched it when it came out way back. I just watched it.
I think it is a beautiful love story. A simple kind of love but a real love. Not fraught with obligation or pretense like other relationships of the time. When two souls are drawn to each other undeniably.
I think IMDb should consider adjusting their requirement of ten lines. A lot can be said with few words.
The beginning was a bit hard to watch but once the two main characters meet up, it was lovely to watch.
The main actors both did a good job.
I recommend watching this movie. It's unique.
