5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!, 7 Feb 2005
They say "the most romantic film since 'Titanic'" but a message to all you fellow 'Titanic' haters, do not let this put you off!
I am not a fan of Titanic and am also known for my intolerance of romantic comedies, chick flicks etc. However, this film is such an exception I am stunned and I stand corrected from when I said I hate romance! I saw this movie in the cinema and was surprised how soon it left the screen-it was gone by the next week! I can't believe how few people must have watched it!

5.0 out of 5 stars Beautiful!, 7 Feb 2005
This lovely book is really sweet and will please people who have a love of illustration-particularly fans of the artwork found in comics such as Squee or Viz. It's a story about a young boy who loses his hat and the reason for him being so desperate to get it back which I won't give away but it's a sentimental story and is wonderfully drawn. Although small, the book itself is only 'short' because it doesn't take long to read-the characters speak through images in speech bubbles rather than words but this is brilliantly inventive and one of my main reasons for loving the book. It might sound a bit loved up but I really would reccommend this book-possibly even as a gift to someone with a… Read more
