quirky piece of work.... I sure did like it though
I voted this film a little low only because there is magnificent competition out there, masterfully crafted stuff perfect from alpha to omega... despite my lower end vote, I enjoyed the heck out of this work by the end of the film.
First I should say, I only tuned in because of the cast, I knew nothing else about the film except the quickie blurb in the TV guide.
I thought it started out a little odd and choppy. The early "dating" scenes though only from 1992, seemed a bit unnatural and "dated" - (and made me wonder if when I was young and starting to fall in love, I was ever really that hokey and scripted) but I hung in there... I had hopes the film would go somewhere other just "another Hollywood love story" - boy, did I get my wish.
I honestly didn't see the turn of fantastical events coming, Lukas snuck them in softly allowing the viewer to discover for themself before the reveal... but once I did, I was hooked right in, line and sinker.
Other opinion writers have given the details in their "spoilers." I don't think I need to, but I would like to say to those who haven't yet seen this film to suspend your sense of disbelief with a heart open enough to hear the quiet breathing of someone you love while they are sleeping miles away from you.
By the end of this film, I was very glad I took the time and highly recommend it for any but the most cynical and insensitive of clods.
