Storyline

Nico Rinaldi gets Dr. Matthew Heller to see his wife Silvia, born D'Alessandro, privately, about a tumor. This stirs doc's memory how they met 15 years before, as young medical idealists, postulating for a relief expedition to (ficticious) civil war-ravaged Gomba in black Africa. After an Amsterdam prep course from Dr. François Francois, who warned they'll age a lot in year, the Chicago laborer's son and Italian industrialist's daughter left for man-made hell in the tropics. Written by KGF Vissers

So unrealistic
9 August 2011 | by devil_girl15See all my reviews

This movie was way over the top, mostly dealing with the cancer, it was just unrealistic portrayal of a women with caner. Then the constant going back and forth and the screen saying what year it was. I don't appreciate watching Silvia collapse every five minutes from the brain cancer, i mean in real life people don't constantly collapse i've never seen a cancer patient ever do that, and they have her shaking vigorously like a vibrator, its so disturbing seeing this. People don't melodramatically do that in real life, and her death clichéd, shes talking and then dies, like love story ugh. 1/10 stars, and Marissa Tomei wasn't all that great in it either.
