Very Commendable Soundtrack
22 January 2006 | by dizzy_dawnSee all my reviews

I've seen this movie three times now, but only once all the way through. In general, it's a classic tear-jerker but not as much as I would have liked. Having a good cry when watching a movie is a good thing... (unless you're crying because it's horrible) but this didn't give me the sense of emotional drama I was hoping for. To me, it didn't seem like the characters were really showing how much Juliana's Cancer was affecting them. There was only one scene when I felt her parents were really showing us their true feelings in the situation. Sam, I would also have liked to have seen the emotions from a "best friends" point of view, which I don't think was shown that much. This movie was based on dancing, but it could have took a deeper more in-depth look at the sides of Cancer and how it was affecting Jules's family and friends. Something which really caught my interests in this movie though was the music. The music in this movie really conveyed the situations playing in front of us and fitted in perfectly. For me, the music was one of the best parts of this movie.
