It's bad, Joe. They're evacuating the villages. We're about to be washed out. We're hearing gunfire now.
Can you... can you get to Calamar? Can you get across the border to Columbia?
They're putting us on the bus. I don't know where they're taking us. Joe? Joe?

I don't want to speak about this lovely movie too much. The story is simple, but the actors and the acting are great. The ending is surprising in a good way and the atmosphere of the film is very well realized.
I write this review because I wonder how low is the medium IQ of the regular voters on IMDb ? How can they rate a idiotic movie like Dark Knight 9, ranking the 10th movie of all times !!!, and a decent film like this only 6 ? Maybe because there are no special effects , no lame actor died shortly after filming, and the romance is no more appreciated.
Few years ago you can rely on the IMDb ranking, but now you can miss many good movies and go see a lot of rubbish, if you consider the vote from present site.
If you are a little bit romantic, see this film, you will like it.
