It's a beautiful, authentic film.
27 February 2004 | by starybrtSee all my reviews

I was touched by the over all presentation of this film. It reminds me the feeling of walking in the woods in colorful autumn. All the charming textures and senses of a romantic story were well presented throughout the entire production. The story combines precious moments of that famous kiss scene and a woman's journey to discover her optimal loving and beauty in her reality realm. This abundance of love and romance echos through this film has provided a very warm, soothing comfort to the viewers. The actors and actress are very real and natural which makes a fancy story become earthy, full of life. Music, camera, in terms of visual and audio design created poetic dimensions in the film. It is definitely a beautiful, authentic film, for a viewer like me, it was a great experience in enjoying " The Kiss".
