The DVD itself has been sitting on my shelf for I don't know long. I finally got to watch the film and I was literally *ASTOUNDED*. What an incredible production! What a great cast. Nicole Kidman was stunning in the red hair -- saying she was a goddess is an understatement. I can now see why it was picked as the HTF's DVD of the year last year. I give it: Everything about this film is unique, and, IMO, every word in that script rings true. "The greatest thing one can learn is just to love...and be loved in return." That's one of my favorite lines in the film.
