An idea hit me when I heard the news that the director of this film died on March 18th 2008. This film's my favoirte.
This is one of the most romantic films ever made and is filled with the joy and anguish of love and war. It shows that while war may create logistical lines that can not be crossed, the heart has no boundaries. Anyone who has ever experienced a love of such emotional intensity and physical longing became one who will understand the love affair of Katherine and Almasy.
Also, I wonder what movie is your favorite and why.
