I found this movie to be excellent. The cinematography was crisp, complete and didn't stumble in its presentation. The acting was solid and believable, not overdone. The use of the soundtrack with the selected scenes was perfect. The music didn't draw your attention away from the picture, it was complimentary to the actions involved and provided a soft pulse. The story was well written and it made you think about what is important in both life and relationships in ways I feel most people have long since forgotten. I think you would be doing yourself a disservice if you choose not to wrap your arms around this film, settle into its warmth and open your soul to the message it delivers.
