| One of my ten favorites
Never overacted, yet powerfully moving. I've watched it many times, and it never loses its impact. No one I've watched it with have left unshaken. It's impact is in the same class as "Sophie's Choice"; can there be higher praise? If this movie can leave you unmoved, you have a heart of stone.
