the most heartbreaking tear jerker i've ever seen
7 May 2007 | by Kristaleyes1See all my reviews

I watched this movie first as a child and recently saw it again on true movies on sky TV. I would love to be able to watch it again and again but after searching for weeks i still can't find where i can buy it. If anyone could help me out i would be eternally grateful. I don't care if it's on DVD or video i would be happy with either. Anybody that has watched this movie and says they didn't cry must be lying or has a heart of stone. If you know where i can get hold of this movie, please contact me at Kristaleyes1@h0tmail.co.uk, i would be very happy to hear from you. I check my e-mails daily and i would be sure to let you know if and when i get successful. Thank you for taking the time to read this and i hope to hear from you soon.
