I don't remember for sure, but it was 2002 or 2003 when I 1st heard about this wonderful movie.
A very nice person told me it's his all time favorite movie. As a coincidence ;-), in 2003 Adrian received this movie as Christmas gift from Santa Claus. We watched it back then, but we lost at least half of the movie's magic, as our DVD didn't have Romanian or English subtitle...
Those days I felt it's time to watch it again, this time with Romanian subtitle. Yesterday evening, very late, after Ilaria felt asleep and we finished the chores, we started the movie. We were so tired that I hardly believed we would have watched half of the movie before we would have fallen asleep. But, once the movie was started, we became fresh and keen to see what's next. And the movie, with its 130 minutes long, seemed for us too short.
It's W O N D E R F U L!
And they are right: everyone should see it!
Have you watched this movie yet? Anyway, you should watch it again. There is still time enough for this until Christmas!
In Romania you can find this movie in "Adevarul Holding" bookstores.
The essence of the movie is caught in the quote: "Dear George, remember no man is a failure who has friends."
Thanks to you, all my friends! And thanks for recommendation, Sasa P.!
On a scale from 1 (worst) to 10 (best) I give it an 11.
