Cast & Credits
What I like and appreciated about this drama was the ending. It was somehow happy and they gave the whole tragic illness a better and more optemistic spin.
The love story was really cute and warm as well, even though it started a bit awkwardly. The two actors had great chemistry and their romance was somehow realistic and sweet. The performances were really good as well.
So, seven out of ten.
You don't feel the long-time running - which means the script was well written -, but in the end of the movie I felt that something was missing and it might be the fact that the essence of the problem was taken way too lightly.
As the movie is pretty much concentrated on the two main characters, for me, connecting with the characters is important, but for some reason I didn't feel the connection and the sequence of events just turned too obvious.
Don't get me wrong, it's a good movie and it might be very appealing for some people so give it a try.
