Mina tankar om filmen:
Jag tror jag sett den här filmen för många år sedan, kände igen den. Härligt att se alla känslor som svallar, hur den unga kvnnan får livet och livslusten att återvända och hur änklingen och hans familj äntligen blir "hela" igen. Underbat att en så svår situation kunde lösas.
