Definitely movie from my personal top 10 of best movies ever. I have good news for lovers of Romance cinema. This film, which I even refuse to compare with the other ones is the masterpiece created by my favorite director. There are some scenes in this movie that I will remember them until I die. The variety of dialogues, which is the power of this production, excites the viewer, especially against today's movies that are clearly weak and so boring. H. Bruce Humberstone proved that the whole film can hold the viewer's attention. Now sit up and watch, I'm 100% sure, you won't be disappointed.... Show more
