A Haunting Tale Of True Love And Tragedy
12 June 2014 | by DLSchindlerSee all my reviews

Beautifully woven kaleidoscope of a story. Very touching but also heart-breaking. Enjoyable by anyone that likes to be taken on a journey through a character's life in a way so realistic you are sure it is reality. There are moments that made me squeal with delight as characters finally had the courage to say and do what was in their hearts. This film is the first time a bed scene actually made me cry a little. The overall effect of the film is very memorable and familiar to almost anyone. There were other scenes that were upsetting as well and left me feeling as if something left incomplete. If you believe in love-at-first-sight isn't always a fairy-tale, or even if you don't, then some of that waits for anyone who finds this film.
