The best of all the Danielle Steel Adaptations...
9 September 2002 | by staceymSee all my reviews

Message from Nam is my favourite of all of the Danielle Steel adaptations - and I do have them all! I could watch this movie back to back two or three times at least and not get bored.

I can't really express how much I love this film and how much of my day I spend thinking about it! The whole premise and setting seem so... appropriate. The acting is TV movie, but with standout performances from the two leads, who not only seem to fit the parts perfectly, but seem to fit one another too. Not to mention that Ted Marcoux is gorgeous looking... but anyway!

If you get a chance to see it, I would highly recommend a look.
