great story of how love can last a lifetime
18 November 1999 | by jcb4See all my reviews

This was an excellent movie of how love can withstand a lifetime of trials and tribulations without the total commitment to each other. Their love for each other doesn't stop them from living their lives the way they want. It is my number one favorite movie.
