Laetitia Loubser: Beautiful photography!!! There might be people who would not understand the full content and see it just as a soppy lovestory with a sad ending. I tell you, this is a story about life's realities! take heart all you women who feel frustrated in your marriage. There is a example set for you in this movie!!!

Michelle Steyn: Absolutely terriffic!!!

Robert Frost: What a lovely change this movie is, if I could spend the rest of my life in any place on earth Montana would be the place.

Pam van Vuuren: Scenery is beautiful, quite sad.

Arnold Dreyer: VERY Good people movie.

Lisa Gage: I read the book first so, I think I was expecting a little more from the movie, I very seldom re-read a book and this one I have read five times.

Debbie Ervin: I also read the book first. Perhaps I am guilty of making too many expectations from the movie...Though that's not to say the movie was bad. Quite the opposite. Just different from what I expected. I think both book and movie are wonderful in their own right.
