Gerard Butler is quite an actor.
Joanne B. Thaler
I believe the problem with "One More Kiss" lies with the script, which is too superficial for the subject.
Janis Hendler
The only one who ends satisfied is the interloper who we are to feel sorry for, and I just can't do it.

Sarah left her father and Scotland behind when she moved to America to pursue her career. She also left behind Sam, her first love. Now Sarah -- dying of a brain tumor -- must return home and face her biggest challenge: to die with dignity knowing you've made peace with your past. But things have never been easy for Sarah -- her father vegetates in his chair withdrawn from life, Sam is married, and the other cancer victims in Sarah's support group sometimes help her and sometimes scare her.

How do you go back and make amends before you die? Does your need to set the past right take precedence over the lives of people living in the present? This movie doesn't supply easy answers but will make you think about love, life and death.

All the actors are wonderful but I want to single out a youthful Gerard Butler as Sam. His confusion and complicated situation regarding his past with Sarah and his present with his wife is played with heart-breaking sincerity. Warning -- tears may flow...

Butler and the director Vadim Jean are planning to work together again on a movie about Scottish poet Robert Burns and I am looking forward to their reteaming on what should be another heartfelt production.

I liked this film very much. It's a very intense little drama which will provoke reflection, indignation and much post-viewing discussion, as evidenced by the postings here. What happens when as a fairly successful young woman, you are diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumour and given just months to live. What happens when as a happily married man, the first "true love" of your life turns up at the door and tells you she's dying and wants to spend her last days with you? What happens when as a happily married woman, your husband's first love turns up and asks to "borrow" your husband for the last weeks of her life? How these people respond is the story of the film and it is gripping from first to last.

The actions of these characters are far from exemplary but they are believable. These are human beings, not saints. Personally I thought the dying young woman's actions were extremely self-centered, insensitive and selfish. She must have known perfectly well that her actions would wreak havoc on her "true love's" marriage. One's imminent death is not a license to ruin other people's lives. The man's response to her proposition is equally disappointing. When your wife makes it crystal clear that she doesn't want you spending time with your ex-lover, irrespective of whether she's dying or not, you do not blissfully ignore her pleas because you coveniently assume you have a "higher" obligation to a dying friend. It may be old fashioned to point out, but a man's first loyalty should be to his spouse, not his "first love." The wife's reponse was to be expected. My sympathies lay with her from the start.

One More Kiss has beautiful cinematography, a lovely score, an interesting premise, and a badly cast role - Sarah (Valerie Edmund).

From our first shot of her on the rooftop with arms outstretched, no matter what the cameraman and director do, they cannot make this into a woman who looks like she is sick, let alone dying. She is too big, strong and healthy. So I cannot feel her pain, sorrow and desparation. In fact, I feel nothing, and that is bad for the role and the movie.

On the other hand, the actress playing the wife, Charlotte (Valerie Gogan) is perfect at showing the panic, resentment and eventual hatred of this interloper in her life. From the very first time she sets eyes on Sarah - in her husband Sams' (Gerard Butler) embrace, even just a friendly one - she is threatened. (As I would have been; confess would YOU come into a room and see your husband with his arms around another woman as just another day at the office?) When Sam introduces them, he even hesitates before he says "my wife." What a slap in the face.

Maybe I'm not seeing the romance in this situation. When Sarah announces she is dying, Sam is nonplused; Charlotte sees trouble. In the real world, right then I would have said, "sorry to hear that and WE will help if WE can. But that's not this movie.

So we have THE LIST for Sam it get through. Which is just a device to be able for Sarah to manipulate Sam into kindling a romance again. And all the singing together, skydiving and kite-flying and lush background music doesn't make it anything but what it is - seduction of another womans husband. Leading to predictable harsh words, fights and tears. But Charlotte loves this man; she hugs his jacket and breathes in his smell; and cries in pain.

I had the pleasure of watching this movie once recently; it was the UK version. I am excited to find that I can now order a version that will play in my US DVD player!

Being a fan of Gerard Butler, it is hard to dislike the characters he plays, and in watching this film I was torn between whether I could forgive Sam as well as his old lover. I can not write much because I do not want to ruin the film for anyone who has not seen it, but... it does make one think about how fragile love really can be. It shines light on the idea of having a soul mate- that one person who, even after many years have passed and a life has been created with a new love, has the ability to tear apart everything a person has built with his/her lover. This film made my heart hurt, and that, in my opinion, makes for an awesome film. I am happy to add it to my collection.
