Quotes

Narrator: Here we are seeing it, ladies and gentleman, the very face of love. Look upon the miracle it reveals. And this boy, on the night under the moon so full, and yet he weeps for himself, and for us, and for the moonlight too, the boy does weep. Behold the beloved, hers is the name in the song which echoes in the space of his heart. Love is passion, love is mystery, love is pain. Above all things else, love is pain.

It seems like people have recently become quite callous because otherwise I couldn't understand why this excellent romantic semi-comedy/semi-drama/semi-crime story with excellent likable characters and a lot of love couldn't be highly appreciated.

It's not like this movies is without its flaws, for instance sometimes it dragged on and some parts of it could have been easily cut out without affecting the story in any way.

What you are about to see is a crazy love story involuntarily intertwined with the criminal world. It's not about being a hero and conquering the love of your life when you are lost, it's just about following the emotions which bring you to life.

I'd recommend this movie to anyone who thinks of himself as a romantic person, and I'd definitely recommend it to all ladies.
