It´s a very very sensible movie!!!
12 June 2001 | by lelene-bonoSee all my reviews

When I watched the movie, it remained for a long time in my head. It´s a beautiful movie, sensible, and I liked very, very much. It´s one of the best movies I already watched... The place where happens the story is wonderful, the song is wonderful and Brad is very well like "Rick"... I get sad about the final, but the choice he made was correct. All the movie was correct. Perfect.
