Quite possibly one of the saddest movies I've ever seen. It's a lot like reading Tess of D'Ubervilles by Thomas Hardy. The simple story of a girl who falls in love with the man of her dreams, promises to wait for his return so they can be together... and life ends up getting in the way, but the feelings never stop. Vanasse was fabulous as Donalda. She was cute and innocent and you watched her grow. Her childish fantasies about the way the world should be melted away into the reality surrounding her. Romantics beware. This one will break your heart.
