10 October 2005 | by dooku_dragosSee all my reviews

The movie is just splendid! it has all you need for a romantic movie, the only thing that i "didn't like" was that the subject was "used" already or you know what will happened when you seen him that he goes in that dangerous mission. Any way its super romantic!both actors are beautiful. The title is perfect.I really want to see a second part of this movie something where we can see they're family , they're second love plus the love of Bill Fitzgerald's daughter or something , the place where the film was made is wonderful as well.The location is so romantic ... this film it has all what it needs to be a perfect romantic movie
