If you wanna go...
1 June 2005 | by dbdumonteilSee all my reviews

One of Robert Carlyle's finest performances,this wonderful movie avoids pathos and melodramatic effects .Multiple sclerosis is an awful disease but the director focuses his work on the patient's courage,humor and resilience .All is not rosy,far from it,and Nick's pals are subject to egregious gaffes while his parents try to take their boy home to protect him.

This film contains one of the most heartrending love scenes that has ever been filmed!No ,there's no sex in it!Nick's girlfriend ,Karen does not want to go now,and she stands in the pouring rain,she keeps waiting waiting desperately waiting.She gave the highest proof of her love that she could.

It's not a desperate film.The last scene is a message of hope. As Bessie Banks sings "Go now....or you'll see me cry "
