of course the film is overly-sentimental but cher's performance is phenomenal. i don't think people give her enough credit...the cannes jury wasn't shitting around when they gave her best actress for this.
Watched a long time ago. And I did like it. Cannot remember a single scene, though. Just images, with no dialoguges. I remember the way the lead character moved and dressed, and not much else. And remember him talking to his mother, Cher. Have no idea if my 3 stars would survive rewacthing it.
