I found this a wonderful film about a young man's struggle with his illness, its potentially fatal consequences, and his decision on how to live with it. I thought Brad Pitt did a wonderful job as did Guy Boyd as the father. To me it was the way he handled a difficult script that shows the quality of actor he is. Many people will not like the theme, the script or the way it was handled. It is not for everyone. But it is for me.

Although Brad Pitt is now one of my favorite actors (Missouri should be proud!), I really didn't enjoy this film. The story of a young man dying from a strange disease deciding to enjoy his time on earth and falling in love sounded good, but the end result just wasn't. Now don't get me wrong, Brad did show a lot of potential, but he had a really bad script to try and work around. The other actors only did fair work. The female lead needed voice lessons and I agree with the other person who reviewed this movie that the nearly constant Bach got on my nerves--at times it didn't even really fit with what was happening. I would also like to say that the part of the race scene where one of the girls watching takes off her shirt and the camera does a close-up of a boy staring at her bouncing breasts as she jumps around was tasteless and totally unnecessary. I wanted to stop watching about halfway through, but I watched the whole thing, partly out of respect for Brad. He made a good effort, but even an actor as charismatic and talented as he couldn't redeem the movie.

I watched this because Brad Pitt was in it and I thought it had potential, despite the low ratings. Unfortunately it was truly a waste of my time. Despite it being a boring low-budget movie, there was barley any plot--just a waste of a movie!

This was part of one of those 8 films for $5 DVDs and was a nice romantic tragedy..filmed in the former Yugoslavia (Talk about a tragedy!)

The desperate dad was well acted, and young Pitt did a good job, even covered in a leather mask.

A few WTF moments, like the bum who is crushing unlit cigarettes with his shoe to quit smoking and then later crushing condoms. He is featured all too often in the movie and apparently represents something, but what?

And one on the beach scene, right before a motorcycle race, a female extra snaps off her bathing suite top and parades her ample bosom right in front of the camera lens. Why?

The re-use of the same classical music gets a bit cloying and the whole thing is a bit like a made-for-cable Hallmark special. But it's OK, and not much more.

WORST MOVIE I EVER WATCHED! Couldn't wait for it to end! The editing was so bad that the storyline didn't make any sense. Cheryl Pollack's acting was stiff and flat; Brad Pitt's acting wasn't much better. C.Pollack's singing was WORSE than her acting! Don't waste your time with this disaster!

This movie is just plain awful. Acting is terrible, the constant drama music makes you crazy and the plot could be told in 5 minutes. Pretty scenery and the Dad does a decent job of acting, otherwise a total waste of time.

The script was weak...a bit tiresome. The acting was awful except Brad Pitt's who at times didn't seem he was all there. It seemed like they were reading directly from a script and/or having a "rehearsed" conversation. There's so much more but I don't have the time.

Thank goodness that time provides actors an opportunity to star in films for experience, to use better technology, take acting lessons and and get a hold of superb scriptwriting because this one was really subpar. However, I understand they have to start somewhere. This movie really was not super bad but time really puts its stamp on films. I collect Brad Pitt films so this was a first for me and I won't be watching it again because it is not that kind of movie you want to watch repeatedly, but I made it all the way though even while I was in bed sick. And it is short too-not like today's ridiculously long movies. However, it is interesting to see his technique at play now and back then. I see common things that he does.
