Actually, I wasn't expecting to like this movie. Usually real stories are poorly presented and they lack the intensity of emotions that other films provide. However, this one is one of the good ones. The story starts softly, with how the couple met and got engaged. Soon, the girl goes into coma and the family and her fiance struggle to cope with it. Kudos to the film makers for not focusing on the coma period too much and making the plot boring. So, soon the girl wakes up, but she can't remember anyone, especially her fiance. It was nice to watch how she was trying to regain her life gradually, while the people around her helped her. The love story was stronger and more tragic at that part of the movie.
In addition to the story and the well execution of it, the performances were really good. Especially from the girl, who was amazing. She played the coma state perfectly without overdoing it and she also potrayed her rehabilitation process really well.
