The plot: A young designer (Muriel Baumeister) cares for her sick husband (the gorgeous James Wilby) and while the husband is dying from a sickness, she falls in love with his best friend.

Unbearable, incredibly cheesy flick. There is absolutely no chemistry between Baumeister and Wilby and at times it is obvious how uncomfy she feels around him.

The only person who saves this is James Wilby, whose performance is loving, caring and gorgeous as usual. He is also the only reason why one should watch this movie. Forget about the rest of it.

Credits go only to Wilby's performance and some beautiful shots of landscape.
