Great Simple Love Story
1 May 2009 | by PoisonedRainSee all my reviews

This movie is a love story. There isn't much more to tell. But i don't want spoilers here. For those who seek more than a simple, beautiful teary-eyed love story, than this movie isn't for you.

I loved this movie for it's simplicity, for it's simple touch. Something more wonderful about it. It's very realistic and the acting is quite amazing.

It has beautiful songs, the ending is heartbreaking, but again, it has it's special simplicity that makes it feel so original and fresh.

Most of you will probably identify yourselves with this story, because it has a common love type story. Though, the way the movie was build, the way the acting was, made the story seem so powerful in it's own accord.

If you are a big fan of love stories and if you don't need sex scenes or other over the top stuff that many people put into a love story just to try and make it realistic(which in my opinion,is quite the contrary)then watch this.

I give this movie a solid 9.
