A poignant tale of star crossed lovers through beautiful images and taut story telling.
30 October 1999 | by squeeze-5See all my reviews

Check out the incredible Title Sequence. Marlee Maitlin does her best role since Children of a lesser God. If you haven't see this movie yet, RENT IT.

Jeff Fahey leads a brilliant cast, including Montreal native Carl Morotte.
