Originally the film was to feature Ann recording tapes for her father and for Dr. Thompson, in which she forgives her father for being absent during her childhood, and tells Dr. Thompson that his seeing patients as people isn't a bad thing before thanking him for keeping her impending death a secret. The ending montage was also supposed to feature a video clip of Ann's dad making shoes for his granddaughters from prison with tears in his eyes. These things never even made it to the filming stage, probably because of the length of the production itself. See more »

This is without a doubt, the saddest, but most beautiful movie I have ever seen. It really touched me. The acting is superb, the plot heartrending and thought provoking, and the cinematography outstanding. I spent 2 hours blubbering like a schoolgirl, and it was worth every second. The simple fact that one's life can seem not to have started until the point where one's own mortality is realized is a revelation to me. This movie has opened my eyes to the importance of life and love. Money, power, fame, all are fleeting and can be lost in a moment to illness, famine, war, or fate. It is those around us, and our relationships to them, that are the things to be held most dear in our final accounting.
