    I think it's this is the best movie I have ever seen in my whole life. I have never felt so many emotions in one movie before. I have also never cried so much and so hard watching a film either. What a beauty and sad love story

    I've been watching this film everyday since the first time I watched. Why am i feeling so sad? I can't eat anything just spending my days thinking of this film all the time. Can someone help me? Why am I feeling like this?

    This movie looks really well made but I just refuse to watch another tragic gay movie that ends with characters dying of aids. I don't need that depression in my life right now.

    I have never cried so much with a movie. This movie is so beautiful and painful. The story completely enveloped me, it is so real. It took me on a roller coaster of emotions. Just watch it and get ready to cry, a lot.

    The love story is beautiful - the illness is hard. But - in general - To me: An accurate reflection of 3 decades (70's through 90's)

    Why do I have the feeling that yet again this is a gay love story that will end in dead. Cause, you know, that's how 99,99% of all gay love stories end in a movie.
  • MrCA85 2016-08-10 02:36:49
    Wow...this movie was amazing very emotional, the cinematography was very beautiful and the music that was picked went perfectly with every scene. This is a must watch film, it made me cry several times.
