      Ionela C My favorite movie of all time Absolutely loved this one, the drama, the romance, the music, everything (even if it's rushed) Rated 5 out of 5 stars 04/17/24 Full Review Os Sapatos V Como eu adoro este filme, acho de uma doçura. Rated 4.5 out of 5 stars 02/21/24 Full Review Neil S This is one of my top three favorite movies of all time. Rated 5 out of 5 stars 02/14/24 Full Review Lanfranco C Music is all around Us, but this time it doesn't catch so much. Rated 1.5 out of 5 stars 01/12/24 Full Review L A good movie, and I enjoyed the plot. The directing seemed off as did some of the acting, but if you just sit back and take it for what the storyline is trying for, it is a very entertaining movie.
