I THOUGHT IT WAS VERY WELL DONE, NOT TOO MUCH DRAMA BUT VERY TRUE TO LIFE. IT SHOWS THE LOVE OF A MAN FOR A WOMAN WHILE AT THE SAME TIME HIS HEART BREAKING, HE WAS WILLING TO MAKE HER HAPPY IN THE END BY BRINGING BACK THE MAN SHE GREW SO FOND OF. EVERY WOMAN SHOULD BE SO LUCKY

While this is not a "feel good' movie by any stretch of the imagination, it's a movie worth seeing. Julie Christie is magnificent in her role (and still breathtakingly beautiful) as a woman with Alzeheimers. This is most definitely not a mainstream movie and will not appeal to all but for those who want to see a dignified, intelligently done, thought-provoking movie - this is a must-see. The performances by Christie, Gorden Pinsent as her husband and Olympia Dukakis as the wife of another patient in the long-term care home Christie ends up in are all top-notch. Wendy Crewson was spot-on in her performance as the administrator of the facility. I highly recommend this film.

thought it was a beautiful love story about a very sad situation which was handled well. i really did not know what to expect but very pleasantly surprised. my husband and i left with tears in our eyes. i hope many people see this movie to better understand how to handle if a loved one ever gets alzheimer's.

Julie Christie does a stellar performance and I found it to be extremely realistic and tender. I highly recommend people see it of all ages because it creatively but gently protrayed a very serious reality of the experience of aging from both sides in a partnership. Lovely and bitterweet.
