The garden we all dream about
11 February 2001 | by See all my reviews

Have you ever dreamt about Love ? The one which comes out of nowhere, turns your world upside down, heals all your wounds and gives your life a meaning ? Now this movie is about a love like this. It is a contemporary romantic fairy tale with a good sense of humor achieved by not taking itself too seriously. You won't regret seeing it.
