    I remember seeing it at the video store years ago and thinking I'd like to rent it when I'm alone one day but never have. Is it good?

    BTW love Shaun.

    Yes It is so good ..... It is sad, but so well done, at least I think so.. Thanks for responding.. I wondered if anyone had seen it or remember it. It is a story of arranged marriage and love that cannot be. PLEASE rent it ....

    I love Shaun too!!! LOVED THE HARDY BOYS!!!

    Loved The Hardy Boys too. I'll definitely check it out. Love those types of movies. Like Water For Chocolate sounds a little like it.

    No it's Stephan Jenkins of Third Eye Blind but I absolutely loved Rick Springfield even from his days on General Hospital.

    ^^ Yes they were... I thought it was just sad, then sweet at the end .. And the scene where she is on the ship, and she is watching the people say goodbye and his car is there watching her leave just made me so sad.

    I love that movie. The ending is so sad.

    If you like the movie, you should read Duras' book.

    No offence, but she looked like a 12 year old in that movie and watching the sex scene kinda felt wrong IMO
