Visitor Comments
Ashleigh Smith: Very enjoyable.

Jordan Sanders: It was a very romantic movie - that's what makes it a very good movie.

Michelle Zietsman: Art movie - commercialised for everyone to understand - great romantic entertainment!

Jolene Smit: It was a great expectation.

Yolandi de Beer: Excellent!

Andrea Miranda: This is one of my favorite movies now. It was real, emotional, and moving.

Tara Goss: This story was a masterpiece (before it was turned into some Hollywood hoax). It was a classic, for God's sake leave it be so the people who actually can understand Dickens can enjoy it in peace without having to put up with all this cr*p.
