A fantastic film
13 June 2009 | by See all my reviews

This is one of the best films I have ever seen. Passionate, moving, caring - but all without being over bearing. The use of several centuries worth of beautiful music really adds to the script. The two leads produce phenomenal performances, and really make you feel for them. The film, as a wonderful compassionate message, without being overbearing, and managed to make me laugh out loud on several occasions.

The musical scenes could have been more tightly tied to the script, however, the were powerful and moving. No complaints.

I would recommend this film to anyone.
