A simple movie with good values. Families can watch it with no fears.
11 June 1999 | by dennis-35See all my reviews

This is a wonderful film. It moves slowly and surely. There is no last-minute crazed finale. You get what you think you are getting: an innocent, tender love story. I highly recommend it.
