Magnificent, aren't they? "God's tears".
Yeah. It's beautiful. So are the others, I... I guess I just have to make the right decision.

well went to see this movie at it's screen test, where at the end, we had to answer some survey questions about the movie. before going in to see the movie, i thought it would be just another romantic movie but i was soo wrong...
the pace of the movie was just right...with flashbacks and character intro and perspectives on certain situation during the movie was quite interesting to see, plus how the story unravel very much satisfied me as it was totally unexpected...just amazing, plus the camera works/effects just so cool to watch...
i must say this is not your usual love story and it sure will appeal to all movie-lovers and it's just amazing!
