Blatant rip off of the much better The Notebook. A few good moments, and Pinsent is as great as ever. Otherwise, the film has nothing going for it.

Excellent source material, the short story "The Bear Came Over the Mountain" by Alice Munro, helped keep this one from becoming overly sentimental or trite. A nice touch with the directing and a fine cast all around make it well worh watching, despite the unhappy topic.

The best part about this movie was its quaintness. It was a very charmingly quaint movie.

An extremely emotional film, that examines a couple who faces a huge test when one develops Alzheimer's to a point where she must enter a retirement home. Julie Christie is exceptional as her portrayal of the disease is shocking - her character literally transforms before your eyes. Truly a great performance, it's easy to see why she won so many awards. The supporting cast is strong as well. Not a happy film, it's one to watch for the performance.

Though Notebook-esque, it was an original story with good scenery. This movie gave me the sense of relaxation and at the same time informed me more of the horrible, debilitating disease. The story moved too fast and bored me at the end.

This movie is really depressing, but thankfully Sara Polley did this film well. Apparently she got advice about certain scenes from master Atom Egoyan. I can't wait to see more films by her. The world doesn't need more female directors, just good directors.
