    I think that this story is very nice, but anyway I would like to read Romeo and Julieta or maybe Hamlet... but I like the book and the story!

    (sorry for posting such late, I must admit that I thought that I had to write just one comment.)

  3. I like this film! I watched this for some years.. I don't remember the all film but the book reminds me.
