I've never written a movie review, here or anywhere. I felt I needed to now. I'm an action/sci-fi guy by habit, the lower brow the better. This movie is absolutely sublime, expertly directed and performed. The idea in modern cinema seems to be that true emotion is sappy. And, while I watched it 17 years after release and by accident, I felt for the characters. The idea of love and loss is older then Shakespeare, but this film made it feel fresh. Simpley, I loved it.
