| BACK TO POP 80'S!!!
With the one of the best romantic songs performed in the history of cinema..."Electric Dreams by Giorgio Moroder", who was also the composer of the soundtrack for this movie.

Yes, welcome to the pop 80's, with the first computers, who looks in todays "Internet era" slightly obsolete, simple, but cute romances and naturally, trendy pop music which gives a special push for love scenes. Sure, I was only a little boy, when I saw this one in 1984, but despite the simplicity I fell a love with it. Maybe it was, because of a very cute blond Madeline or maybe it was for computers, which was very popular in our country back than. Beats me. But, I'm sure that there was one thing I didn't forget. An above mentioned front song.

It followed me through all these years, and in October 2003 I finally get a chance to see my childhood love again. How was it?

Well, it didn't touched me, like back in the past, until the romantic ending where I felt again this great felling of the 80's when everything seemed so simple...

So, all in all, Electric dreams will always have a special place in my heart, although it has some flaws, simple script and some holes in the story...but hey, it's either you fall in love with this one or it will leave you cold...I had to decided it, so I rented it again, and the rest you know, if you read my critic:)

7 out of 10
