Daniel: I'm not going anywhere.
Jane: Yeah, well, you're not the one I'm worried about. I'm not crazy, in case you were wondering. I mean yeah, but no, not really. It started off as a joke. But just saying it, "I'm dying", finite. It gave things a sense of urgency and sometimes it doesn't work. Well, most of the time. But there are days, if I really let myself buy into it, I can actually see the beauty of how little time we really have. And lately, that only seems to be happening, when I'm with you.

Good movie, but do research after...
18 September 2017 | by tmjirgalSee all my reviews

I read a lot about this movie and since I'm a Catholic I looked up information about this movie from Catholic websites I could trust. I'm not sure what kind of light this shows Catholics in, especially the monk who smokes and seems to not care about the fact that this priest might be breaking his vow of chastity. Yes, I understand that priests are human and temptations are real. But I think it's important to point out that not all Catholic priests act this way. In fact, when a priest breaks his vow, its a very big deal. It sounds like a funny, romantic movie but its good to keep in mind, especially if you don't know much about Catholics, that this is not 100% accurate.
