Truly Madly Deeply is an amazing film, it's moving, it's humorous

Bach duet on the piano, she turns around and Jamie's there, playing
It's bliss at first but then he starts rearranging the furniture,

and it's something everyone can relate to. If you like romantic
movies without the Hollywood glamour, Truly Madly Deeply is highly
